Dr. Peter Hotez: 'We're Going To See Schools Return To Virtual Learning'


    1. @Sandi Harris Over 620,000 of us are dead from Covid-19 and many thousands more have serious permanent disabilities from it. And all you can think about is yourself. Republicans have become the party of the criminally selfish.

    2. No kidding, and it’s all to make political points, what sane adult protests a minor inconvenience like wearing a mask when the alternative is hundreds of thousands of dead Americans. Or lies about a vaccine that will end this nightmare. Republicans have become the enemy within America.

    3. @John O when republicans get busted for INSIDER TRADING and they go on social media telling people not to take a vaccine which could cause those people to take a drug THAT COULD MAKE THEM RICH – id say NOT VOTING FOR ANOTHER REPUBLICAN ever again is a WISE CHOICE, considering they obviously don’t care who dies or who lives as long as they make money.

  1. The fact that we have to talk about the possibilities of a child being in the situation of being bullied for wearing a mask or for not wearing a mask is disgusting. This is on every adult to get this under control. These children deserve better, we as a society are failing in every way.

    1. Once again, the Globalist Corporate Imperialists and their lackeys in the media and political parasite classes, will pit nation against nation, race against race, hemisphere against hemisphere, vaxxed vs. unvaxxed to achieve global hegemony, and the perpetuation of their privilege.


    1. The prophesies of Jah is in full motion , as you said , dont get caught up in there fire , just be there for the rebuilding

  3. It’s only a matter of time before schools go virtual again. There isn’t enough space and they eat lunch indoors. You can’t stop this without vaccinations and strict masking rules for everyone in schools.

    1. @Jeremy Backup conservatives have been dragging dwon America for over 200 years, why would this be any different?

    1. @Larinda Nomikos …cut and paste head line …you are a silly soul that thinks rules don’t apply to you

  4. We are pretty fortunate my daughter attends a academy were she will do a combination of online academics and in person academics a whole day and half day with only 10 students. Masks are mandatory along with other covid protocols. She had covid last December and it really terrified us. She is 8 years old no medical issues and I have never seen her in that much distress. She wears her mask with out any reservations at all at her young age she understands the importance of keeping herself safe as possible.

    1. “The typical mask you buy in the drug store is not really effective in keeping out virus, which is small enough to pass through material-Dr. Fauci

  5. We never stopped home schooling. This should have ended a year ago. Trump & “personal freedom” wouldn’t let it. My Grandaughter knows this was the result of the worst president ever.

    1. @SH DMD And your point is…? We should not bother to protect them from covid because children get murdered? And, btw, those statistics will change before the year is out. You effin troll.

    2. @Larinda Nomikos Less kids dying from Covid than on streets of Chicago and Baltimore. Use your brain and look at the date. Cases do not mean death my god lol

    3. kids won’t die, how to die from Covid? your average age needs to be 83, you need to have been diagnosed with a very serious health condition and you probably also need to have phenomena or the flu.

  6. Gaetz and Greene are in Iowa for a rally.
    I heard this on a news broadcast… “Their values are in line with the values of Iowa”.
    Blew my freaking mind.

    1. @Larry Garland whereas when repuglucans “think” there’s always a nasty smell like a shart that follows.

  7. You get down to the basics and you teach your child how to deal with a bully that will help you when one runs for president AKA dumped 45 bullies lose in the end cuz they working with blanks in the courage cartridge

  8. Oh, yeah. That’s exactly what’s going to happen. And the Lamda virus is here, two or three cases. Give it a month and we’ll be dealing with that.

  9. Maskless kids should be sent home, not allowed to pressure kids into taking theirs off. This is nuts.

  10. how to die from Covid? your average age needs to be 83, you need to have been diagnosed with a very serious health condition and you probably also need to have phenomena or the flu. probably 85 for delta

  11. Without a national mandate, you’re asking children and their parents
    to take the brunt of policing mask safety.
