CDC Director: Keeping Schools Closed Poses Greater Health Threat To Children Than Reopening

2

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Director Robert Redfield said Thursday that the health risks of keeping schools closed are greater than those of opening them, amid a push by President Trump to have students in classrooms this fall.

“I’m of the point of view as a public health leader in this nation, that having the schools actually closed is a greater public health threat to the children than having the schools reopen,” Redfield told The Hill’s Steve Clemons.

“I think really people underestimate the public health consequences of having the schools closed on the kids,” Redfield said at an event hosted by The Hill and sponsored by the Biosimilars Forum. “I’m confident we can open these schools safely, work in partnership with the local jurisdictions.”

  1. Yeshivos closed poses greater ruchnius threat than corona. Sadly many many boys and girls went OTD within this half year that the yeshivos were closed. They could have easily kept them all open, especially those with dormitories keeping them quarantined, like many chassidishe yeshivos did who never closed. Sadly, several hundred yeshiva bochurim got themselves a positive blood test (not a difficult feat) to be able to go for 2 weeks to a free hotel with free beaches somewhere near Teveria or wherever. Couldn’t their mosdos keep them in yeshiva the same way as the those chassidishe yeshivos?

  2. Obviously, this is glaringly significant that even the director of the CDC himself OPENLY ADMITS that the Lockdown of schools is not a solution but is instead quite harmful. The next step is for him to admit that, similarly, the Lockdown of summer camps and (all year) parks & playgrounds is also not a solution but is instead quite harmful. The even bigger next step is for him to admit that, similarly, the whole Lockdown thingy of all of human business & society is not a solution but is instead quite harmful.
