We live in a split country where some teenagers and children get sicker of social isolation and school lockdown than the coronavirus.
This makes doctors and psychologists ask questions about if schools’ opening would be better in the long run than the long-term harm of isolating children and teenagers away from school and friends.
On the other hand, we have the article “Coronavirus, schools, and children - what are the risks?”. Here they state the problems in more neutral terms. Overall, they put more focus on questions like what’s the risk to teachers?
And do schools play any role in actually spreading coronavirus? According to Jenny Harris, England’s deputy chief medical officer
schools are not the worst in spreading the virus. Furthermore, it seems like teachers have the same risk of getting infected by coronavirus as other people.
