|To Be Or Not To Be,that's A Question. by Gray123: 8:39am On Aug 02|
Health experts on Saturday continued to urge communities to use caution and planning when considering whether to send students back to school, after the US got its first glimpse this week at how Covid-19 could reshape education.
"We have to ask the question, are we willing to live with the end result of the inevitable situation where teachers are going to become infected?" asked Dr. Michael Saag, associate dean for Global Health at the University of Alabama at Birmingham.
"Are we willing to live with those consequences?" he said. "Because I think that's what we're going to see in about three months from now, unfortunately, with the rates of infection that we have."
I hope that when it comes to whether schools are open or not, less consideration should be given to electoral factors and more scientific judgments should be made.
