US coronavirus: New CDC guidance says Covid-19 rates in children 'steadily increasing'

Source: CNN

Health experts say children make up more than 7% of all coronavirus cases in the US -- while comprising about 22% of the country's population -- and the number and rate of child cases have been "steadily increasing" from March to July.

The data was posted alongside updated guidance from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for pediatricians that also includes what is known about the virus in children.
"Recent evidence suggests that children likely have the same or higher viral loads in their nasopharynx compared with adults and that children can spread the virus effectively in households and camp settings," the guidance states.

Transmission of the virus to and among children may have been reduced in spring and early summer due to mitigation measures like stay-at-home orders and school closures, the CDC says."Recent evidence suggests that children likely have the same or higher viral loads in their nasopharynx compared with adults and that children can spread the virus effectively in households and camp settings," the guidance states.

3. State funding threat keeps Florida schools on path to reopen

Once again, we will see in about three weeks how the reopening of schools is going and whether facts and science or right wing talking points will prove true.

The state Department of Education’s decision to stand firm on Hillsborough County’s move open the year without in-person classes continued to reverberate on Tuesday. Hillsborough officials got a look at how much their action might cost the schools. Pinellas County board members who had been reconsidering their own plan took a look at what happened to the east, and chose instead to stay the course. They weren’t alone. Nervous parents and teachers, meanwhile, kept agitating for the seemingly more elusive online-only plan. Read on for the latest.

What’s $23 million a month worth to a district? That’s the amount Hillsborough schools might not get if they stick to the currently adopted reopening plan. There’s another board meeting set for Thursday.

Without that kind of money, a system might face ‘draconian cuts.’ Such a possibility kept the Pinellas board from following Hillsborough’s lead. • The Polk County School Board also didn’t change its Aug. 24 opening day, the Ledger reports. • Palm Beach County board members said they’re prepared to adopt a new reopening plan after the state rejected their first proposal, the Palm Beach Post reports. • Hendry County district officials changed their plans, too, after learning the state hadn’t approved their online-only approach, the Daily Beast reports.
