This story states that the virus is extraordinarily￼ contagious. I don’t think it’ll make any difference to the politicians, but I have not seen one child who is remotely sick with COVID-19. Nor have I admitted any child to the hospital with COVID-19 where I live in Texas. In addition to that, if the virus is so extraordinarily contagious, then why haven’t we seen it all over the country within a very short period of time. This is the way pandemics work. They don’t take a Chinese junk to travel around the world.
If the hospitals are filling I suspect that the government is hiring and incentivizing retired doctors (who need the money) and doctors who had lost their licenses to admit any child with COVID-19.
Would the government do this? You bet your ass it would.￼
