    It’s true. Just a bunch of burnt orange, bright red, frog purple, and rape green hats in these parts.

    Oh, and a fuck ton of cowboy hats.

    The chances of a healthy 17 year old getting coronavirus are pretty damn low.
    The chances of a healthy 17 year old experiencing severe symptoms are low but I think the chances of him contracting the virus is the same as anybody's. My concern isn't necessarily about him getting seriously ill, it's more because the optics of the headline "UW recruit contracts coronavirus on campus visit" could seriously fuck us over.
    But it's not the same as anybody else's. As a healthy 17 year old he's not going to spend much time around unhealthy 70 year olds. By nature of the population he's a part of he's less likely to be exposed to someone who has the virus and if he is exposed that individual is less likely to do a lot of coughing and sneezing that make it more likely that they spread the virus.

    Coming to UW on a recruiting trip is a lot different for your chances of infection than visiting grandma in Kirkland.
    What is this based on? I don't think healthy young people are any less likely to contract the virus and become infectious than unhealthy old people. Probably the scariest vector was the kid in Everett who was tested and returned to school before his test came back positive.

    This sounds scary and obviously we don't want to spread the virus to more carriers when it can be avoided but kids are largely unaffected. The teachers would be the real concern here, as well as anyone with compromised immune systems.

    There's plenty to worry about with Coronavirus. Schools are not especially high on the list.

    If only these worldwide school closures were aware; likely victims of fake news.
    The schools aren't closing to protect the kids. They're closing to

    1. Maintain optics for those who want them to #DoSomething. Reelections are a bitch.

    2. Protect teachers, administrators and other staff.

    3. Protect the families of those kids who could potentially get infected.

    The kids are going to be fine. In fact closing the schools cuts off a lot of kids from lunches and other services. It's almost assuredly worse for the kids to not have school right now.

    This isn't being done to protect children. Not by anyone who cares about the science anyway.
    You list two bullet points that are absolutely supported by the science and then say that the school closures aren't supported by the science. Confused...
    Fair enough, but the first bullet point is the primary reason they are closing. It's the primary reason everything is closing. Everyone is in CYA mode.
    That's pretty cynical, but maybe you're right. I like to think that--especially at the local level, where school superintendents are members of the community and actually care--those second reasons are major drivers.
    I hope you are correct.
    I'm thinking the schools are closed due to the fact that kids are the cute and lovable Typhoid Maries of the virus. They are less sanitary than adults and the "at risk" grandparents of the little carriers just can't keep their hands off their infected progeny. If the kids aren't at school giving it to each other, then maybe the community can stem the tide of the young and strong infecting the old and sick.
    This was probably a part of the reasoning early on but it seems to be that this isn't actually true. Kids don't spread the disease.

    @LoneStarDawg's chinfo on T-Cells seems like a pretty good explanation for this phenomenon.

    Reading back through this you obviously missed the "This isn't being done to protect children" portion of my poast.

    @LoneStarDawg's chinfo on T-Cells seems like a pretty good explanation for this phenomenon.
    The takeaway from that study is that closing schools isn't an effective strategy in a low-prevalence setting.

    Seroprevalence amongst the students was .6% but another study in Saxony showed a seroprevalence of only 1% amongst blood donors. It was not a hard hit region. Also this was 14-18 year olds not young children. I am also not clear on whether these students were attending school during this period, and if so, what precautions were in place.

    It is interesting that 23/24 students with household history of COVID-19 were negative considering the role that household transmission appears to play in the US. Makes me wonder about the cultural differences in Germany that may have led to them being relatively spared compared to other European countries.

    However, considering how strong our priors are (99%?) that children (especially young children) are vectors for an unknown disease based on all other known diseases one study of adolescents in a different country doesn't lead me to conclude the opposite.

    Then we have the new study of the Georgia camp showing a 44% attack rate (260/597) which is a likely underestimate since only 344 were tested (76% positive.) Campers were not wearing masks but staff did wear masks.

    So now I am back to at least 99% that children are a vector for COVID-19 transmission.

    Agreed, or at the very least, turn off the cable news. I don't watch any of it, but I get the sense there seems to be a lot less sensationalism in the pseudo-accountable broadcast news. I think it's doing the public a disservice, but if I were running a cable news network, I'm sure I'd hype every development as the most important yet.
