Fauci: It’s too early to discuss whether to reopen schools in the fall

Media reported that although every state in the United States began the process of reopening after the outbreak of the new corona virus, life will not really return to normal until schools across the country reopen. Thankfully, Dr. Anthony Fauci has recently expressed some optimism that extends even to schools.

Fauci: It's too early to discuss whether to reopen schools in the fall

Asked Wednesday local time if the school could reopen in the fall, Fauci told CNN: “I don’t want to make any broad statement about whether it’s safe for children to go back to school.” When you talk about children returning to school and their safety, it really depends on the level of virus activity and the specific area you’re talking about. It happens often but understandably, but sometimes it is misunderstood that we often talk about the whole country in a single way. “

Dr. Fauci points out that it’s no use putting schools in a single unit in each state and each city, but overall he seems to see no need for schools to close in the fall. “Children can be infected, so, yes, you have to be careful… Now it is assumed that schools should not be opened, which I think is a bit overblown. “

Fauci’s equal confidence here is reflected in his recent assertion that a second wave of new crowns could be avoided.

For no other reason, Fauci thinks it’s too early to start talking about the “pros and cons of getting kids back to school in September.” After all, reopening schools depends on the circumstances, so while some schools can reopen almost without restriction, Fauci points out that other schools may need to make some adjustments, such as classes, to make the curriculum less crowded. He also wants schools to adopt creative solutions in classroom layouts that will separate students to meet social distance precautions.

Whatever the re-opened schools do, parents will no doubt worry about their children’s safety, especially given that the inflammatory syndrome affecting young people seems to be linked to the new coronavirus. The U.S. National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, headed by Fuchs, is currently conducting a six-month study of 6,000 children and their families in 11 cities to learn more about the risks the virus poses to children, which will be important data for the fall.
