Dr. Scott Gottlieb: ‘Tens of thousands of kids’ with undetected coronavirus could be spreading it
Gottlieb said the role of children in spreading seasonal influenza is well understood and that is why schools were closed in response to the Covid-19 outbreak. He said there is ample data showing that the scope of a flu epidemic is reduced “dramatically” when schools are shut down. With the flu, children become vectors and spread it throughout the community, said Gottlieb. “We assumed the same was true of coronavirus. We don’t have data yet on that.” (CNBC)
