Vox Analysis of COVID-19: We Don’t Know Much

October 17, 2020

The Vox article below offers lots of information but draws no clear conclusions about how schools and colleges might deal with the ongoing and seemingly endless pandemic. After reading this very comprehensive analysis I drew one conclusion: we know less now than we could have if we had a unified NATIONAL approach to collecting data and reopening. Eight months into this outbreak we have no uniform means of data collection, no uniform policy on defining what constitutes an acceptable risk level, and no clear path to making a rational and informed decision on how to reopen schools. It didn’t have to be this way. We could have heard from the outset that we need to listen to the scientists who know about the disease and heed their advice… but politics and the stock market were used to make decisions instead…. and it’s unclear whether or when we will have the data we need to make the life or death decisions we face.
