How many people will die before they end up closing all those schools anyway?

SoupGuru: How many people will die before they end up closing all those schools anyway?


There will be 2 or 3 days of school and then 2 weeks of quarantine as long as DeSantis wants to play games with kids. Some kids will die, 3 or 4 across the state. More will face lifelong complications. Lord knows how many are being cared for by their grandparents. There will be thoughts and prayers, maybe a photo op if their parents have some power. And nothing else but deflection and codes of silence from his office.

What's going on here in Florida is insane and awful. They are trying to force the reopening of all educational institutions regardless of the actual situations. Where I work we are still at near 20% positivity, four times the WHO's recommended level for reopening.

Florida, I know we give you the business sometimes, but I'm asking sincerely: do you need help? There are a lot of good texts out there on how to govern well or elect people who will. If they're paywalled or something, we could pass the hat maybe. Or we could read them to you if that would help. It's just a shame to see you hurting yourselves like this over and over and over again.

Well, let's be reasonable. Only doctors have to take some sort of oath not to harm those in their care. Surely that sort of liberal crazy talk doesn't apply to those in charge of the educational system, right?

There's very little science at all about any of this. But we do know that it has some pretty nasty effects on adults, so it's reasonable to be concerned as a parent.

Your position is essentially to run a huge science experiment on children to see what happens and mocking those who don't want to have their children be part of it.

My parents are currently raising my heroin-addicted sister's two children. My parents are 74 and 70yo. My dad has Parkinsons from exposure to Agent Orange in Vietnam.

My mom is a born and raised Florida-cracker racist, although she wasnt nearly as bad until Faux News came along.

I went to their house yesterday to pick up some packages I get delivered there because they live in a gated neighborhood, and they would likely get stolen off of my front porch.

My mom told me she was planning on sending the older sibling who is 6yo back to school next week. I asked her if she had their will in order, and pleaded with them not to send her back to school. They are both retired and have all the time in the world to do school from home.

Her response, "I'll think about it".

I called my dad today to try again because he's not a wing-nut, he simply told me, "your mother is nuts. I dont want them going to school. Yes, our affairs are in order. You get the house, the kids will go to their father if we die."

Sobering shiat.

It's insane to me to watch people say, "Well, nothing more we can do, guess we need to feed our kids, our teachers, and our staff into the woodchipper that is COVID-19" as opposed to realizing that protests are an option.  Who chooses potentially murdering children over protesting?  We've already had weeks upon weeks of protests.  I'm sure activists would be more than happy to give you some pointers, and join you.

First of all, even one child dying or suffering lifelong debilitating complications because Republicans want to open schools and force people back to work during a pandemic is too many.

Secondly, while your point may be correct (and I don't really think it is without you providing evidence), the fact remains that children are human disease vectors. When it comes to Covid, they actually shed more virus than adults do. With that in mind, it's not just about the children. It's about their parents and extended family.

We need a nationwide, near total (90%) shutdown, with an almost complete closure of state borders. We need to severely limit intrastate travel as well, and have stay-at-home orders backed up by the courts and possible criminal penalties. If we do that for six to eight weeks, we can get our number of active cases down to a manageable level where we can actually do things like contact trace. In no universe does mandating in person instruction in schools at this point do anything but make things worse.

We do respect science, which is why we agree with the scientific consensus that opening schools right now is, to use a scientific term, "absolutely farking bonkers."

A recent study said that they seem to be the best spreader though because they apparently carry a higher viral load than older people. So essentially we are going to have millions of supercharged super-spreaders.  Plus, our data on child injury and death is very small.  When we get into the millions we may find that we're oh so very wrong about the reality of C19 and kids. And by that point it will be far to late to ever turn back.  Sounds like a bigly intelligent plan.

Parents should be refusing.  If they have vaccination exemption based on deeply held personal belief then I would say it's my deeply held personal belief that my child and family should not face injury or death just so they can go to school based on a pre-C19 schedule that ignores the reality and rarity of the situation we are all facing.  There is zero reason for it.  It's a lie that kids are going to be permanently farked if they wait to go to school.  They will simply be behind and we can deal with that when we are in a better place and it doesn't put literally everyone in great danger.
