Mike’s Musings

Random thoughts, opinions, ideas and prognostications on the day's events.

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio abruptly shut down the largest school system in the nation on Nov. 18. More than 1.1 million students were ordered to stay home, robbed of the opportunity to learn, to discover, and to create the change we so need in this world. Their educational journey was halted, yet again, as 1,700 New York City public schools closed their doors in the name of COVID-19, a virus that has spared children in a kind of miraculous way. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the survival rate of COVID-19 for school-aged children among those who contract it is a shocking 99.99 percent. In fact, new data shows a greater number of pediatric deaths from the seasonal flu than COVID-19 — over three times as many deaths, to be exact. The CDC estimates at least 434 pediatric deaths associated with the flu during the 2019-2020 season, a season cut short by nationwide lockdowns no less, as compared to 133 who sadly died from COVID-19 since the virus’s emergence some nine months ago. Most of them had underlying health conditions.

To De Blasio, Destroying 1 Million Kids’ Education Is Just A Political Game
