The rate of contagion and transmission of the CCP Virus among children is known to be negligible and, on the contrary, the problems they manifest in lockdown in their homes are increasingly serious, in addition to the deterioration in the quality of their education. However, the mayor of New York, Bill de Blasio, using the arguments of Dr. Fauci, decided to keep schools closed only for political reasons and to seek to confront President Trump.

When rumors in the early years said that a serious plague was coming, Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, recommended in March that schools close their doors. De Blasio obeyed and announced that for an undetermined time, 1.1 million students in New York would have to lock themselves up and study at home, as reported by The Federalist.

Private schools and children in affluent areas were able to adapt their education to a system of confinement and online learning. However, the system brought many inconveniences, both because of the problems associated with the socialization of the children, which could never be replaced by a computer, and because of the academic issue, which was strongly affected. 

But even worse, for the students with no home computers or internet education was directly cut off. 

After the blow suffered in Europe during February and March by the CCP Virus, the first statistics arrived that assured that the rates of contagion and spread of the virus among children was really low. 

At the end of May, Europe announced the reopening of classrooms in at least 22 countries. In none of these countries were there any outbreaks after the reopening.

From that moment on, a war began between the Trump administration and leftist Democratic politicians allied with the legacy media, in which President Trump and his circle constantly fought for the urgent reopening of schools, but had to face resistance that continued to promote the confinement and educational lockdown without scientific argument. 

In August, the CDC published figures showing that young people were considering suicide at disturbingly high rates. In September, Fauci continued to claim that schools should remain closed and de Blasio postponed opening day until Sept. 21. De Blasio did not seem to care that as of Nov. 18, according to the CDC, only 123 children under the age of 18 had died from the CCP Virus.

In New York, after negotiations with the teachers’ unions, it was finally agreed to reopen, but on the condition that if the reported positivity cases throughout the city reached 3%, schools would close again.

On Nov. 18, that exact scenario occurred and the schools closed again. 

While it is true that the reported infection rate (which was also repeatedly questioned) reached 3%; the New York government’s own data also states that the positivity rates within schools is only 0.28% citywide.

Taking into account this key data, it is worth asking why de Blasio chose to close the schools anyway? Some claim that the decision is to protect teachers. Now, according to the CDC, those between the ages of 20 and 49, most of whom walk the halls of schools, have a mortality rate from infection of 0.0002 percent. So, what is the reason?

There is no doubt that the refusal to reopen the schools by the mayor of New York has no other reason than to contradict President Trump and try to expose him as supposedly responsible for all the ills afflicting the country because of the CCP Virus, among them, education. 

The CCP Virus should be the least of our concerns when we consider the psychological and emotional effects that these school closures and reckless decisions have had on our children: The increase in child abuse, the increase in drug use, the suicide rates, just to name a few. Our children are suffering and it is not because of the virus, it is because of irresponsible politicians and scientists who put their interests ahead of the people.
