US NEWS: U.S. schools In the margins, small towns reopened without the COVID flag; major cities next

U.S. schools From kindergarten to high school they have avoided the spread of COVID-19 cases, showing the first details, but medical experts say the real test comes as students in large densely populated cities like New York and Miami return to class.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention this week said more than 270,000 COVID-19 cases have been reported in children aged 5-17 since March

The number of school children is rising sharply in mid-September as many schools reopen, but remain below the standard set by mid-July.

More than 700 primary, secondary and re-primary schools opened at least half of them, reporting that 0.07% of students and 0.14% of staff had confirmed coronavirus infection in the first half of September, according to data collected by Brown University.

While Brown’s sample is part of the United States, and national statistics are scarce, a study conducted by Switzerland’s Insights for Education of 191 countries found that school openings here have nothing to do with rising COVID-19 levels.

“There will soon be reassuring details that if you take the right steps – and be able to control the spread of society … you can open schools safely,” he said.

Nathaniel Beers, author of American Academy of Pediatrics guidelines for opening schools.

There may be difficult days.

The tour so far has been very volunteer and the reopening is focused on cities and small towns.

Medical experts say that other challenges in big cities include a lack of space, old buildings with painted windows, adequate ventilation, a small outdoor space, and limited funding for such efforts to follow up with infected contacts.

The $ 2 trillion incentive package passed in March included $ 13.2 billion in K-12 education, but progress on another bill has stalled.

“Most urban districts are bearing the brunt,” Beers said. “The COVID-19 virus has had a profound impact on Blacks, Blacks and Indians and low-income groups.”

New York City, the largest public school district in the United States, this week began opening here after two delays. Infections have increased in some areas, however, and officials say they may change course if that continues.

Responding to criticism of poor student bullying in the Los Angeles area, provincially elected officials this week agreed to consider opening the first grades with a limited number of schools and voiced warnings.

“We must remember that every re-opening has a high risk of COVID-19 transmission,” the director of public health, Barbara Ferrer, said in a statement.

Miami-Dade County Florida, the school’s fourth-largest district, plans to return students to classes in a permanent manner from next week

. The government wanted its public schools to reopen in August, but areas where the virus was most prevalent – such as Miami – were released.

Florida’s September charges against school-age children have fallen within a month, with an average of seven days of new cases, according to pathologist Jason Salemi at the University of South Florida.

Rates of new cases during the month are positively declining for younger children with significant differences in middle school and high school people. They are very low since mid-July.

“If you use as many mitigation strategies as possible, I believe you can be safe by sending the children back to school,” Salemi said.

The American Federation of Teachers Union lost a lawsuit to delay the reopening of Florida, but President Randi Weingarten said strict adherence to antiretroviral measures reduced infection in August and September.

“The lessons are that the face works and the function of physical distancing … But if you take your foot off the conscious shields then woe to us,” Weinarten said.
