I'm just really surprised Americans actually care about us going back to school, for fear we may die. Y'all didn't do anything for twenty years of mass shootings but now y'all care when the threat affects you too. American students have already understood and accepted the risk of death from going to school. We would rather go back and live our lives and, if we are fated to die, die.
I think people that phrase it as protecting the kids aren't being completely honest. Kids are not likely to die from COVID. As of June 17, only 13 kids aged 5-14 have died from COVID in the US (out of 103K deaths). What I am worried about are the people that interact with the students. Parents, teachers, grandparents, kids with pre-existing conditions, etc. Opening the schools would greatly increase the number of cases and put more vulnerable people at risk.
