    His measure is idiotic if Seminole County is considered a hotspot. There’s half a million people in Seminole County but less than 3,000 active cases and only 76 new cases yesterday.

    It's not that simple. Germany could have a low transfer rate between kids because they have done a better job of protecting their kids, even if they did send them back to school. Parents who sent their kids to a summer camp that didn't require masks and packed 15 kids in a cabin for sleep overs obviously didn't care.

    I'd say maybe we could learn something from Germany about safely reopening schools, but then again, they were able to (a) get the disease under control before (b) reopening schools ... in that order. In America, were going to do a "hold my beer and watch this" sort of school reopening while the virus is cresting at it's second wave peak ... wonder how that will turn out.

    This was addressed in the United States thread. Spread in Israel. 3 Florida day camps. The AAP amended recommendation. The poor and inadequate data Collection in Sweeden.

    You never learn. You just go from thread to thread repeating the same talking points. But, please don’t insult people by saying that they are selective in science. Because like I said yesterday, you don’t have a rudimentary clue about statistics, Scientific methods, replication, Met analysis, virology. To continue to advance the reports from Sweeden after you were told that the Swedes did not collect data and their methods are not peer reviewed is really just to spread falsehoods. All you did yesterday was ignore the critique and start arguing the AAP’s withdrawn statement. So, for you to make a comment like this takes a great deal of nerve. And for you to again raise the withdrawn statement by the AAP after I linked the revised statement is a flat out intentional falsehood.

    It is false. Read the US thread yesterday. He is relying on a withdrawn statement from the American Association of Pediatrics.

    He did see it. I posted it yesterday in direct response to his posts and he replied. So, what does that make this link?

    Not sure how the low rate has to do with the fact they contact traced with over 2k people who had some kind of contact with someone positive.

    More self righteous drivel about how smart you are and how stupid I am. Haven’t seen that in a while...

    AAP didn’t withdraw their statement. They said no in person learning in hot spots. That’s it. Other than that kids should be back in school. Sorry. But you lost this one. School will be starting in most places in person. You keep safe sheltering though.

    Let us know when you bring any facts to the discussion. You just want things to support your thoughts, not facts...

    It’s amazing. Deniers want schools to open but don’t want to do crap to get the spread under control to open them.
    Bunch of people hoping everything magically gets better but not wanting to put in the work to make it better. Bunch of entitled snowflakes.

    False. That isn’t what they said. I told you to reread the article. It doesn’t say that.

    Gator95, it's one thing to post an article when you didn't know they organization had walked part of it back later. That happens. But when you have already been told about the update and still post the older, misleading article ....

    Germany was small scale test in one area. Israel was an entire country, bigger scale, and cases there went from 50 a day to over 1500. Small scale results don't always carry over when things go big scale. There are often variables that small scale didn't account for that change large scale results.

    Even with a small area, there are risks. Take the town of Winkleman, AZ. A copper town about 90 minutes from Phoenix. Already lost a teacher during summer school, and has has other staff test positive. As the Superintendent says, opening schools soon isn't reality.

    Nothing misleading at all. They recommend kids be at school. Only amendment is to not send kids to school in hot spots like SoFla. Sorry to ruin your argument, again.
