Look on MSNBC Host's Face Is Priceless as Experts Unanimously Agree US Should Reopen Schools. and Other C-Virus Updates

The look on MSNBC host Craig Melvin’s face when all the doctors interviewed by sister network NBC News for a story said they would send their kids back to school amid the COVID-19 pandemic says so much.
As Melvin introduced the segment Monday featuring an NBC News story by medical correspondent Dr. John Torres, he stressed the importance of hearing from public health experts regarding the issue of reopening schools.
Torres began the piece by saying the network reached out to five pediatricians from around the country to get their thoughts.
Those interviewed included California Dr. Yvonne Maldonado, New Jersey Dr. Shilpa A. Patel, Vermont Dr. William V. Raszka, New York Dr. Jennifer Lighter and Tennessee Dr. Buddy Creech, and all offered the same assessment: It is safe to put kids back in the classroom.
“In the U.S., children make up about 22 percent of the population, but kids account for only 2 percent of coronavirus cases so far, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention,” NBC News reported.

Creech, an associate professor of pediatrics at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, told Torres it is not clear what accounts for the disparity between children and adults.
“This has been a strange pandemic because usually for respiratory viruses, children are the first and the most substantially affected,” he said.
“This has really been a flip of that, where it’s our adults, and particularly our older adults, that have been more affected.”
