5 Million Children At Risk Of Death By COVID-19 If Schools Reopen – Study Suggests

As schools all over the world plan to reopen, and governments are planning to force kids to go back to school – it has been found that Coronavirus spreads even faster via kids. Not only that, but it is also much more difficult to detect or test Coronavirus in kids for a myriad of reasons.

But the governments all hell-bent on sending kids back to schools, claiming that it is for the betterment of their own future. But the truth is something else, and it just shows that children are being put in harm’s way for another vicious agenda.

Why are governments forcing the kids to go back to school? Do they really care about education?

Education system is one of the biggest scams that is run by the schools and their lobbyists in the government – if kids sit at home then it doesn’t earn them any revenue. The whole point is to get schools up and running so that they can garner the hefty fees and other charges in the name of Coronavirus safety procedures.

In the USA, the White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany even claimed that “science should not stand in the way of opening schools during the pandemic.”

Their logic is that only a small percentage of children get seriously affected by Coronavirus, and hence it is fine to sacrifice children. Note that even with a mortality rate of 0.2% – nearly 5 million children all over the world will still die if they were exposed to the Coronavirus.

This is the price of “opening up the economy” so that a handful of greedy people can hoard more wealth.

Children can spread Coronavirus at a faster rate, this is why

Studies published in JAMA Pediatrics show that while children are less susceptible to Coronavirus, and they have relatively milder symptoms and faster recovery. But the alarming aspect of this study is also that kids can also spread Coronavirus at a faster rate since most people assume that children are safe to interact with, and also because they don’t show any symptoms.

Surveillance screening has found that a higher percentage of children are carrying the virus while not showing any symptoms as compared to adults. In Florida, it was found that 33% of the children tested positive as compared to the overall positivity rate of 11% in adults.

Also, the last couple of months have shown a significant increase in the number of older kids getting hospitalized due to COVID-19.

Should children wear a mask?

Doctors suggest that children older than 2 years should wear a mask. Children younger than 2 years should not wear a mask since they run the risk of getting suffocated. It’s better to keep the younger children away from the rest of the people.
