False flag! They obviously died of more natural causes like neglect or abuse, just like jeebus intended, and are being miscounted as 'rona deaths because Soros and the antifa thugs. Got any more of that apple flavored ivermectin?

It's just sad that this is on the politics tab. In that the virus has become political at all.

Poor kids.

"My beautiful girl was taken from me because people are too damn selfish to care about what could happen to others," she wrote. "We wore our mask because there are too many in our tribe who are at risk. My daughter was not at risk. And now she is gone."

I'm sorry for your daughter but have you switched tribes? Are you vaccinated?

InB4 some tool posts that only a few hundred kids have died of COVID in the US so it's no big deal.

It's okay. Children are property with which parents can do as they see fit. It's not like they have rights or anything.

WTF?  "Kids can't get covid, have one of them deal with the sick kids."

If we hadn't had COVID-19, we would probably still have an actual mentally handicapped in numerous ways idiot in charge.  His decision to politicize it and happy talk it away took only a small amount of voters away, but it was his decision.  What a dumbass.

Why the fark is a kid, who cannot be vaccinated yet, told to be in close contact with other sick children?  Even without COVID, this is an insane practice for the school to be doing.

It amazes me how we, as a society, seem mostly ok with playing Russian roulette with our children's lives. Biden came into office and schools opened, and everyone mostly just shrugged. Kids are getting sick, and we're like, it's just a few out of thousands of cases, yet, each child represents a significant, almost irreparable loss to a family. Sigh.

I hope the parents sue the absolute living f*ck out of that school.  Burn that mother down... in court, of course.

I am sad about this one; her mother seems to be a responsible person who was raising a responsible kid.

This is another case of murder by Conservative Christianity.

What....you want the school nurse to come get the kid? She could get sick!

/honestly this probably was an answer at a staff meeting
 
2021-10-01 3:19:09 PM  
But, but we were assured by TFG** (as well as some other Covidiots TM Fark.com ) that children were essentially immune.

You mean they lied or were full of bovine excrement (or both)?

Our friends (vaccinated) have two daughters, 12 and 10 years old respectively. They happily vaccinated the 12yo against Covid... they're waiting for the chance to get the second vaccinated. The daughters have a friend whose sister can't be vaccinated. They don't want her getting sick, but they want to hang out and play.

The conservatives online have assured me that kids die all the time from other things so this is no big deal.

Had no problems putting my kids back in school.  A year of remote learning was damaging enough.

I figure if they're still doing other activities such as swimming, soccer, karate, and so on, there's no good reason to not have them go to school masked.  Everyone has their own risk/reward, my kids are thrilled to be back in school, and when they are eligible to be vaccinated, they will be.
 
2021-10-01 3:55:50 PM  
My five year old niece is in kindergarten. We live in Florida and a county with no mask requirements and no distancing. Everything is as if normal. It's terrifying. My parents got an email from school that my16 year old sister was in close contact with someone who had Covid, but Florida does not require you to stay home or quarantine. Luckily she is vaccinated and did rapid test and was negative. The school is citing the genius that is out new surgeon general. I can't wait until the kids can all get vaccinated.

Those kids are dead because Biff and Karen insisted on sending their sick kid to school, pretending, no doubt, to refuse to believe Sue and Johnny when they claimed to not feel well.

Biff and Karen insisted on sending their kids to school because they wanted to enjoy what they thought was the main benefit of "working from home"---getting bombed on company time.

There. I said it.

I didn't say it was Biden's fault. I was just commenting on the fact that we as a society seem complacently ok with it.

Their parents literally gave them up for adoption so the kid could have different parents.  They are wanted and unwanted at the same time.  Choose a perspective and it's clear.

So I recently learned that newborns test positive for Covid if their mothers have covid.  I mean, of course they would, but I'd never really thought about it before.  That's a sucky way to start life, if you can get over it.  I'm glad pregnant women are being advised to stop being dumb about the vaccine.

There have been infants that have died from covid. There's also been an increase in miscarriages with pregnant women who have covid.

But, ya know, pro life.

Most were never "dumb" about it - the early advice was to not be a first adopter.

My cousin's due in a few weeks and was eagerly awaiting the green light for the vaccine. She finally said "eff it" in May and demanded it while her doctor was still dithering.

Pregnancy is terrifying enough outside of a pandemic.

Turns out growing a human inside you really consumes a lot of resources that would normally be used to sustain the host. So weird that.
