Infected children can carry high levels of coronavirus, Mass. General study says

Nobody could have anticipated this. Certainly no parent could imagine that their children could bring diseases home with them from school.


Children infected with coronavirus can carry high levels of the virus even when they have few or no symptoms, according to a Massachusetts General Hospital study published Thursday that bolsters growing evidence that kids catch the virus even though they rarely get very sick from it.
Coming as parents and school officials wrestle with whether its safe to reopen schools, the study adds fuel to worries that children may spread the virus but it does not show that they do.

2. You have to wonder if Putin told Trump that the schools must open

To keep America sick....what a way to damage this country without having to fire a shot.

4. I caught it from a two year old.

She sneezed in my face twice. In January.

This news is not surprising to any thinking human, or anyone whos ever been around a child.
