  1. If young parents can protest, riot and loot without any fear of getting the virus then kids can go to school without any fear. The only thing we have to fear is fear itself

  2. Duh, of course they are rising! Schools are death traps! What makes anyone think kids are going to keep a mask on and not touch each other? If you think that, you don't know anything about schools or kids. They are going to be trading masks, they are going to do corona chase on the playground…come on corona, get me…tackle! Kids have families, teachers, admin & support personnel have families. They may open, but they will soon close, get ready to shut it down and listen to the scientist! Karma…go after the perpetrator of the Orange Plague…Bunker Boy! If he's gone we don't have to worry about him not leaving when he loses. THOUGHTS & PRAYERS, people…Thoughts & prayers for karma!

  3. NBC pushing fear. Why don't they ever tell you how many have recovered? Or how about how low the death rate is compared to infected rate? Or that the test isn't even accurate?

    5/21/20 From New England Journal of Medicine:
    "We know that wearing a mask outside health care facilities offers little, if any, protection from infection. Public health authorities define a significant exposure to Covid-19 as face-to-face contact within 6 feet with a patient with symptomatic Covid-19 that is sustained for at least a few minutes (and some say more than 10 minutes or even 30 minutes). The chance of catching Covid-19 from a passing interaction in a public space is therefore minimal. In many cases, the desire for widespread masking is a reflexive reaction to anxiety over the pandemic."

  4. I say we just stop doing school it’s a corrupt system anyways they need to fix the academic system it’s a joke and doesn’t teach us anything except memorize for a week and forget or now just cheat on google

    Bacille Calmette-Guérin (BCG) vaccination and COVID-19

    Scientific Brief

    12 April 2020


    There is no evidence that the Bacille Calmette-Guérin vaccine (BCG) protects people against infection with COVID-19 virus. Two clinical trials addressing this question are underway, and WHO will evaluate the evidence when it is available. In the absence of evidence, WHO does not recommend BCG vaccination for the prevention of COVID-19. WHO continues to recommend neonatal BCG vaccination in countries or settings with a high incidence of tuberculosis.1

    There is experimental evidence from both animal and human studies that the BCG vaccine has non-specific effects on the immune system. These effects have not been well characterized and their clinical relevance is unknown.2,3

    On 11 April 2020, WHO updated its ongoing evidence review of the major scientific databases and clinical trial repositories, using English, French and Chinese search terms for COVID-19, coronavirus, SARS-CoV-2 and BCG.

    The review yielded three preprints (manuscripts posted online before peer-review), in which the authors compared the incidence of COVID-19 cases in countries where the BCG vaccine is used with countries where it is not used and observed that countries that routinely used the vaccine in neonates had less reported cases of COVID-19 to date. Such ecological studies are prone to significant bias from many confounders, including differences in national demographics and disease burden, testing rates for COVID-19 virus infections, and the stage of the pandemic in each country.

    The review also yielded two registered protocols for clinical trials, both of which aim to study the effects of BCG vaccination given to health care workers directly involved in the care of patients with COVID-19.4,5

    BCG vaccination prevents severe forms of tuberculosis in children and diversion of local supplies may result in neonates not being vaccinated, resulting in an increase of disease and deaths from tuberculosis.6-8 In the absence of evidence, WHO does not recommend BCG vaccination for the prevention of COVID-19. WHO continues to recommend neonatal BCG vaccination in countries or settings with a high incidence of tuberculosis.

  6. Keep the kids out of school so I can send them all conspiracy truth videos. Teachers outside wearing masks for a fake pandemic kids need to stay away from these indoctrinators. Hey teacher leave them kids alone all in all your just another brick in the wall.

  7. I would without fail get multiple colds every school year, from other students, back when I went to in person classes. If colds, the flu, etc. spread easily like that in classes, what makes people think that Coronavirus won't?

  8. Send your kids to school and take your luck appears to be the President's advice .
    Is Trump going to support your kid if your kid gets sick and survives but you catch it and die?
    something to ask yourself before signing on to the MAKE AMERICA SICK program of Trump and the Republicans.

  9. what did you expect? They make kids go to school. 5 feet distance? you can just scratch that and keep spreading from children from one to another even family. Dumb enough to even allow kids or children go back to school. Too early the whole US opening. And bam wow we #1 on the whole nation.Congrats. We should think before taking stupid actions.

  10. It's on the rise because they are testing kids who are going back to school. More tests means you have more results. Better question is how many of them have symptoms?

  11. *Sends kids to school where the most germs are transferred during a global crisis and out break*

    Kids: *die*

    School boards and news outlets: :0

  12. Saw this coming…Trump quotes experts "kids are safe". Experts say "corona is on the rise in kids". Enough of this charade already…It is just an excuse to bully the innocent.

  13. I'm not surprised, but hey when I said this was going to happen I was told I'm fear mongering.. smh. When you have been warned, you no longer can say i didn't know.

  14. Be ALIVE. ''VOTE TRUMP 2020'' if You a Living Fish. Living Fish swim thro' the Current.

Another lab made illness gifted to the masses!!!!

  16. The Africans with little to no advanced medical infrastructure with useless civil wars can defeat Ebola?
    While the world's superpower, USA with advanced medical equipment at its disposal then get 5m cases of COVID with deaths ramping up?
    Wait a minute…
    Death Rate of 2 viruses:
    (Death rates depend on country)
    Ebola (Zaire Strain) /50 -80% death rate
    SARS-COV2 / 0.7-9% Death rate
    I think not!!

  17. YQJU0P8i2nA
    Why would the God of love permit disasters such as COVID-19 pandemic to occur? Why is He executing such deadly judgments in our age? Hear the eternal gospel, the new covenant to turn away from your sins and return to the perfect Truth!

  19. Dr. Hildreth then went into more details about the study. "They collected air samples from a hospital room that had COVID-19 patients who were not coughing or sneezing and were in isolation rooms," Dr. Hildreth said. "This room have a fairly sophisticated air ventilating system. The total air in the room was changed six times per hour, or every ten minutes. It was filtered down to 0.3 microns, about three times the size of a virus particle. The air was also passed through a UV irradiation device to sterilize it. So, after all that, they took the air from the room, they subjected it to two things: they look for virus nucleic acids, they also ask whether they can culture virus from the air by putting it onto cells that are susceptible to the virus. The answers to both of those questions were yes."

  20. Well I guess they can always go protesting.
    Seems to be the only immune thing we can do. So everyone quit your job quit school and go protesting. There con19. will disappear.
    Don’t forget cheat by mail.

  21. You have to be one stupid and pathetic parent to send your kida back to school, and your parental habits should be looked into by a social worker
