Well, I checked the links to "school outbreaks" that are close to where I live (northernmost Sweden) so that I have some knowledge of what really happened in these "outbreaks".dann skrev: ↑lör 17 okt 2020, 08:52It just occurs to me that I had a hard time finding documentation of outbreaks at schools in Sweden a few months ago. For some reason, FHM didn't seem to find them important, so I really appreciate the list that the Time Magazine article links to:Policymakers essentially decided to use children and schools as participants in an experiment to see if herd immunity to a deadly disease could be reached. Multiple outbreaks at schools occurred in both the spring and autumn.
I could not find a single outbreak that actually involved school children in grades 1-9 or daycare children. This could of course be due to limited testing of children in the spring, but I have not heard about any school children or younger that have been hospitalized due to covid in my area. And I'm sure I would have heard about any such cases.
The reported "school outbreaks" i looked at were some combination of
1) teachers or staff only
2) in gymnasieskolor, this fall (because gymnasieskolor were closed in spring).
So I think you are wrong here. You are wrong both why schools were not closed, the main reason is that it is a very bad idea to close schools because it is known to affect the health of children negatively for a long time to do so. And you are wrong in your insinuation that school outbreaks are somehow not important to FoHM, the truth is that we haven't really had any, or at least very few. Outbreaks that have involved children.
