Shutting Doesn’t Schools Does Not Help Slow Spread of COVID

It does, however, damage children.

School shutdowns in Japan last year did not prevent the spread of coronavirus during the first wave of the pandemic, a new study finds.

They found there was no differences in the number of Covid cases per 100,000 between the two groups of municipalities.
