President Trump has again called for schools to reopen this fall.
According to The Hill:
President Trump on Wednesday continued to push for schools to physically reopen in the fall, asserting that the novel coronavirus is “going away.”
“My view is the schools should open. This thing is going away,” Trump said on “Fox & Friends” in a phone interview Wednesday morning, referring to the coronavirus. “It will go away like things go away and my view is that schools should be open.”
Cases have been falling over the past two weeks in some states that had experienced heavy outbreaks this summer, such as Florida, Texas and Arizona.
But those numbers are falling from high plateaus, and there is a danger the numbers could rise again if people do not take precautions, given what the country has seen over the summer.
Science suggests that children are less likely to experience severe symptoms and die from the disease.
