More than 500,000 U.S. children have been infected with the coronavirus, according the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, and 200 U.S. Teachers are now dead.
The Department of Health and Human Services is attempting to prevent Dr. Anthony Fauci from discussing the risk of COVID-19 in children. Secretary Michael Caputo e-mailed press officers at the National Institute of Health, where Fauci works, to instruct him to downplay risks in his forthcoming interviews.
“Can you ensure Dr. Fauci indicates masks are for the teachers in schools — not for children. There is no data, none, zero, across the entire world, that shows children especially young children, spread this virus to other children, or to adults or to their teachers.”
Four teachers have died of the coronavirus since the beginning of the school year—an ominous sign of what’s to come as students return to classrooms across the country — and the American Federation of Teachers confirm that 210 of its members have died since the beginning of the pandemic.
Nearly 50 million children have returned to in-person classes around the country this week.
