Scott W Atlas, Hoover and Stanford, in re: Lessons learned through the weeks of the crisis. Schools in New York and London are shut; reopened in Israel. We have not given the appropriate assurance to parents of how [undangerous] this disease is to children: .02%. Of 15,00o+ NYC deaths, only 8 were in people under 18, and all but one were due to underlying causes. A child has far greater risk from influenza than from Covid-19. Zero scientific basis for separating children in schools, and less for preventing them to engage in summer activities. Covid-19 is extremely low-risk for people under 18. The facts are contrary to the evidence.
