The back-to-school season is almost upon us, but instead of celebrating a quiet home or buying school supplies as soon as possible, many parents are instead nervous about whether their children will be in class Or will be safe from coronovirus. And, of course, if they return to school, it is a question of whether they will bring the virus home. Now, a new study is providing some startling information in these questions. Studies conducted outside Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine found that young children, in particular, consume more coronovirus than adults. In fact, research found a “100-fold higher amounts of SARS-CoV-2 in the upper respiratory tract of children under 5 years of age”.
According to The National Center for Educational Statistics, the average class size in American public schools with departmental instruction is between 24 and 26 students depending on age. The way to reduce this number has become a perennial discussion among educators and policy makers who believe that overstuff classes inhibit learning in classrooms and allow many students to slip through the cracks of the system.
All this can change, as we reopen schools and reopen the classroom through the lens of social reorientation. Although we do not yet know how this will be achieved, it is likely that we will see smaller class sizes in the fall. According to NPR, president of the United Federation of Teachers, Michael MulgraveHas suggested that classes of more than 12 students would be optimal for maintaining social distance requirements. And in more ways coronavirus will change lives in the classroom, check out these 7 things that you will never see in schools again after coronavirus.
New study published in JAMA Pediatrics, Saw 145 COVID-19 patients with mild to moderate disease within a week of their symptom onset. The researchers compared three age groups: children under 5, children aged 5 to 17, and adults aged 18 to 65. While they had the same amount of coronovirus in older children and adults in children under 5, they found 10 to 100 times more Particles in the respiratory tract.
Research was led Taylor heald-sergeant, MD, Ann and Robert H. of Chicago A pediatric infectious disease specialist at Lurie Children’s Hospital. In the report, Heidel-Sargeant and his team noted that children often drive the spread of respiratory and gastrointestinal diseases – and COVID-19 cannot separate.
“This certainly suggests that virus levels in children are similar and probably even higher than in adults,” the Heald-Sergeant reported new York Times. “It wouldn’t be surprising if they were able to shed [the virus]”WebMD Note” Viral shedding indicates that (viral shedding refers to how long someone has been leaving contaminated particles. “Evidence suggests that the novel coronavirus is most contagious when symptoms are worse and viral shedding is higher. “
Research notes that the school closes early in the possibility of an epidemic “thwarted large-scale investigation of schools as a source of community broadcasting.” In other words, we do not yet know if the schools are COVID-19 supersiders because we discontinue them in the first few weeks of the outbreak.
“The situation at the school is so complex – there are many nuances beyond just scientific,” said Heidel-Sargeant. Time.

A recent study out of South Korea appeared in CDC’s journal Emerging Infectious DiseasesIt was observed whether children spread COVID-19. Researchers looked at 5,700 people who reported coronovirus symptoms between 20 January and 27 March, closing schools in South Korea. The findings suggest that coronaviruses are most likely to spread to their homes between the ages of 10 and 19.
“We detected COVID-19 in 11.8 percent of household contacts, which were higher for children’s contacts than adults,” the researchers said. Approximately 19 percent of those sharing a home with sick patients in the 10–19 age group contracted COVID-19. Children under 10 were the least likely to spread the disease (about 5 percent of their contacts became ill). So, there is evidence that children of a certain age are more contagious.
For a new study, the Heald-Sergeant reported Time, “One way of this is that we cannot assume that children are not sick, or very ill, because they do not have the virus.” And to learn more about children and COVID, the 8 most likely ways children can study at school is by spreading COVID, experts say.
