A 9 year old died from #Covid_19 yesterday in Florida. A 5 year old died from Covid-19 in Dallas today. A major component in the low death rate we saw in children had to do with our policy to limit children exposure, by closing schools.
As we open camps and schools, we will continually see our children die.
This tweet is not a scare tactic, it's showing you how public health works. We put in measures to protect children. The crude data only told part of the story- children aren't dying from covid.
The crude data didn't show you that this association was confounded by a intervention (school closures). It's not your job to understand confounding. We should have done a better job telling you about this.
I'm telling you now.
Say no to #ReopenSchools

It's not that reopening K-12 (I'd prefer we focus on K-6) is a bad idea. It's that explicitly politicizing the decision and attacking teachers is a bad idea.
This decision MUST be made based on carefully weighing the risks and benefits based on the best available scientific evidence and LOCAL conditions. Not an upcoming election.
Trump is trying to bait Democrats into strongly opposing #ReOpenSchools, which he knows is something voters want to see happen. Much like back in April when Team Trump pushed all-or-nothing lockdown/reopen thinking & painted Dems as "Team #EndlessLockdown." Don't take the bait.

In the last couple of weeks, I've seen a few documents put out there by organizations on how to #ReopenSchools following the #COVID19 pandemic. The team from @educationweek has a comprehensive map of the 50.8 million school children who are impacted: edweek.org/ew/section/mul… 1/
@educationweek also does a great job of breaking down what's happening in each of the states. Find that information here: blogs.edweek.org/edweek/campaig…

The @CDCgov put out their school decision making tree and you can find that here: cdc.gov/coronavirus/20…
