German study finds children and schools do not pose risk for increasing COVID-19 transmission

The impending school year is the latest COVID-19 battleground, with President Trump pushing to get kids back in school, and Democrats naturally opposing Trump’s every policy position.

Though Democrats relentlessly chide Trump about “listening to the experts,” it appears that the science was on his side all along. According to a recent study in Germany, COVID-19 is not easily spread by young people. 

The study was completed by the Medical Faculty of the TU Dresden and University Hospital Carl Gustav Caru, and found in its study of 2,000 children and teachers at a school in Saxony that coronavirus antibodies were found in very few of the test subjects.

This indicates that schools and young people do not pose nearly as much risk for transmission of COVID-19 as previously feared, and, in fact, may act as a “brake” in infections because “not every infection that reaches them is passed on.”

CNBC reported:

The results showed that out of 2,045 blood samples collected from students and teachers from across 13 secondary schools in the region only 12 samples were found to contain antibodies against Covid-19.

Tests were carried out in several schools where there had been known outbreaks of the virus, and 24 of the participants had at least one confirmed coronavirus case in their household. Nonetheless, only one of those 24 participants was found to have antibodies, the study noted.

The study’s authors concluded that “the dynamics of virus spreading have been overestimated,” and that schools that reopened in May did not become the coronavirus “hotspot” some feared.

Even CDC director Robert Redfield said last week that “having the schools actually closed is a greater public health threat to the children than having the schools reopen.” Emerging evidence shows that children that missed just one partial semester of school suffered in a myriad of ways, but Democrat politicians are willing to sacrifice the actual well-being of children in order to score points against Trump.

In fact, Hosue Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) exploded in anger on Monday after President Trump said that children must return to school in the fall. She claimed that “The biggest risk to the spread of the pandemic is opening up the schools in a way that is not safe” and that “we shouldn’t even be thinking about sending them back to school.”

The actual science is becoming clear that sending children back to school is not a risk for increasing the spread of COVID-19 in the US, but don’t expect Pelosi or any of her Democrat colleagues to even tacitly admit that Trump was right.
