Re: Fall activities in Colorado schools Fall 2020
You kind of missed the mark on infection concerns. It isn't about mortality rates at that age, it's about putting further strain on the health care system if they need medical services and the possibility of these younger infected individuals spreading it to others including higher risk people. Just because you don't get sick or die from a disease doesn't mean you can't spread it. The problem is that many younger people don't realize they are infected because they show either mild or no symptoms. They then go socialize (or more recently, protest) and spread it to others. Those then go on to spread it to others, including older people and we are right back where we start back in March.
Also, there is no proof of immunity after getting COVID-19. The is anecdotal evidence, but there is are also many reports of people being re-infected. There is so much that is unknown about this virus an statistics only tell part of the story.
