Covid-19: Expert calls for 'honesty' about decision to keep schools open
The author of a new report regarding the rates of transmission of Covid-19 among schoolchildren has called for “transparency of all data” from the health authorities with regard to the prevalence of the coronavirus in Irish schools.
The report, which has been seen by the Irish Examiner, was delivered to Chief Medical Officer Dr Tony Holohan earlier this week with a request that he bring it to the attention of the public health authorities.
It notes that 86% of cases, according to official statistics, among 5-14-year-olds have occurred since the beginning of September, when schools reopened for the first time since the onset of the pandemic.

But that is beside my point.

A compressive document on recommendations and predictions from public health to governance does not mention schools once. A place where a million humans congregate indoors.

That is by every single measurement bizarre in the extreme.

Sorry, do you mean this document? Schools are mentioned there. Look at pages 1 or 7 for example.

I've read this. Completely agree except in my opinion on L5 schools should be closed unconditionally.


But from the document from dept of health it seem closure of schools was not considered since this was initial requirement to take measures to let us to leave schools open. I may be wrong, but this is how i understood it. From this understanding i getting conclusion it is the only government responsible for not closing schools because they tasked HS to provide this.

Government comes to Health authorities asking for what should we do in current situation to enable provision of child care and to ensure schools could remain open. They providing their recommendation on how to maintain schools open. If they would be tasked to investigate impact from the schools - i believe they would be able to provide information you are looking for

Public Health information is not just for governance, there is a clue in the name. it should be unbiased, transparent and honest.

So far it hasn't been.

We are either all in this together or we aren't.
