In a few weeks, schools across the country will reopen but in Florida, children are being hospitalized due to Covid-19.

Does this mean that schools across the country that will allow in-person learning should be concerned? I believe so.

On July 16, Florida had a total of 23,170 children ages 17 and under test positive for COVID-19, according to the Florida Department of Health. By July 24, the number had jumped to 31,150.

Experts say that number is a 34% increase in new cases among children in eight days. Children in Florida are requiring hospitalizations and as of July 16, 246 children had been hospitalized with the coronavirus. That number jumped to 303 in eight days.

The surge of children COVID-19 cases in Florida is rampant and the big debate about whether children should return to classrooms this fall or not is heated.

These cases contradict US Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos’ who claims that children are “stoppers of the disease” who “don’t get it and transmit it themselves.” How crazy does she sound though? Crazy ass hell.

Despite these high numbers, the state has ordered schools to physically open next month, and parents, educators, doctors are on edge.

In North Carolina, Governor Roy Cooper said that students will return back to school in Fall but the learning will be a mixture of in-person and online. He did give school districts the option to allow strictly online learning.
