Covid-19 Is Creating a Wave of Heart Disease -daily reminder that there is so much more to #COVID19 than death

New CDC guidance says COVID rates in children is steadily increasing. (not ideal for schools reopening)

LONG TERM BURDEN after COVID hospitalization — “Anybody who needed to be hospitalized or needed ICU support will suffer disability afterwards.”

This is why it is so dangerous to send kids off to school in the Republican states where Case Positivity ratio is 10-20%.

Others said they weren’t going to honor the quarantining and that is troubling.

More than 100 schools should be engaged in distance learning this month, based on @oksde guidelines.

Schools in Coyle, Oklahoma are moving to virtual learning after the superintendent tested positive for COVID-19.

Oklahoma Superintendent was ‘in every classroom’ before COVID-19 diagnosis. He was no doubt insisting on in-person training and then spread it to many kids and teachers.
