Trump falsely claims kids ‘almost immune’ from coronavirus

Trump falsely claims kids 'almost immune' from coronavirus 1


President Trump argued that children should return to US schools because they’re “almost” or “virtually immune” from the coronavirus. Even though children are less susceptible to the virus, they can still transmit it to others in their household or within their communities.
Trump said he would get media criticism for using the term “totally immune,” adding, “but the fact is that they are virtually immune from this problem.” Later, Facebook said it had removed a post from President Donald Trump's page for containing false claims about Covid-19.
The post was the video of the interview the President gave to Fox News.
"This video includes false claims that a group of people is immune from Covid-19 which is a violation of our policies around harmful Covid misinformation," Facebook spokesperson Andy Stone said in a statement.
Stone added the specific comments that had run afoul of Facebook's rules were Trump's false claims about children being almost immune to the virus.
The same clip appears to have also been posted to Twitter by the Trump campaign, which was then shared from the President's main account.

      @anna n
      The school board decides, which is a lot closer to the principle than to the state government.

    • @Ryan Statt do u have any idea how bad is your statement? Think about bro.
      He is just kid and I know deep down u don’t wish any kid to die. No matter how bad is other side certain things you just don’t go and kids are always off limits.

    • @bobwillneverdie one of my brothers has 3 school age kids and he’s keeping them home. He said, someone asked him “aren’t you worried about them falling behind!?! his response is “Falling behind who?” and followed it by saying “if it delays them going to university for a year, i’m ok with that , it’s another year i can have them at home before they leave the nest!

  13. First of all I’m a kid and I got the virus(I recovered) and many other children tested positive. Explain

    • Kids get it and recover, End of story. Kids die from the flu every year. Look it up

      I dont k how maybe you weren’t wearing a mask and maybe your immune system is a bit weak?

    • Brian Andrews | August 5, 2020 at 10:49 PM | Reply

      U can get the disease and u can transmit the disease but u at an incredibly low risk of mortality, so low ur almost immune to the Ill effects even to children have 10-100x the average viral load of an adult. Do u understand??

    • Key words “almost immune” but you recovered right? Because it has a 99.6% survival rate🤣🤣 even higher for kids!

    WHY is it so stinking hard to get through to some people that school-age children come into contact with innumerable adults through the course of their day??!! It’s mind-boggling!!

  17. No parent in their right mind will ever send their child to school with this virus on the loose I should know because I’m a father

    • Ambria Ashley | August 5, 2020 at 10:46 PM | Reply

      Schools in Georgia are threatening expulsion or suspension if parents keep kids home. It’s wild and possibly illegal, but yeah

      I would love to be back in the classroom, Corona or not

    • I am in my right mind and both of my daughters are returning to face-to-face, in the classroom teaching in three weeks. I am a teacher and have no concerns. My wife is a physician and has no concerns. If you take the time to read the meta-study from Stanford as well as the research from 22 other countries that have already opened their schools you would have a better understanding. Children have typically only mild symptoms when they contract COVID, and there are zero confirmed cases of students passing it to their teachers because they are poor vectors for this particular Corona strain.
