The growing Covid-19 instances, as well as the increasing percentage of cases recorded in youngsters, are causing many people to have significant problems. Dr. Anthony Fauci, on the other hand, believes that “if we do it properly,” there shouldn’t be a considerable increase.
The director said that they needed to conceal the school system as well as surround the youngsters with individuals who had been inoculated against the virus. That’s the answer, after all.
Schools Speak Out About The ‘Great Catastrophe’ That Is Unfolding Throughout The US
Since August 16, 13 school workers in Miami-Dade County Public Schools have died as a result of Covid-19, according to the school system and the local teachers’ union.
They said that all 13 people involved, three teachers, one security guard, one cafeteria worker, and seven school bus drivers, were unvaccinated. In the case of the 13 school workers who died, Carvalho stated that they were all African Americans who had not been vaccinated, according to their families.
Due to the fact that vaccine requirements are unconstitutional in Florida, Carvalho believes the best thing he can do is provide incentives to instructors to get completely vaccinated, including a $275 stipend to any employee who can provide evidence of immunization.
Schools, especially in the South, began their new school year in August, resulting in a surge of cases in many districts, particularly those that did not have protective precautions in place.
Doctors and experts warn that it is possible that the virus may resurface when kids in most of the rest of the nation return to school following the Labor Day weekend unless aggressive measures are taken to keep it under control. Fauci emphasized the need for masks in schools as well as immunization for those who are eligible.
According to two sources who are familiar with the speech, the president is expected to deliver a major address on the pandemic this week that will include components related to schools, private companies, and requirements for federal employees. While officials believe that the federal government is limited in its ability to mandate vaccines on a broad scale at this time, officials believe that the federal government has the authority to mandate vaccines in specific situations.
Gallup survey results released on Tuesday revealed that more Americans now disagree than agree that Biden and the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have articulated a clear plan of action in response to Covid-19, according to the results of the poll. The address comes at the period when the effect of the epidemic on schools is getting more apparent.
Following the publication of fresh Covid-19 statistics on Tuesday, children are now getting included in 26.8 percent of all weekly Covid-19 cases. According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, there has been a ten percent rise in the cumulative number of Covid-19 cases in children since the beginning of the pandemic during the course of two weeks, from August 19 to September 2, when the outbreak began. Many states’ healthcare systems are under strain as a result of low vaccination rates and an increase in the number of cases.
