Uh oh: CDC reports children appear more likely to spread coronavirus than first thought

The Guardian summarizes a new report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The report will give responsible K-12 educators much to consider as the school year rapidly approaches.

A report by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) into an outbreak at a summer camp in Georgia suggests children – even asymptomatic cases – may play an important role in community transmission of Covid-19.

The claim contradicts a number of earlier studies where the consensus appeared to be that children rarely transmit the virus between themselves or to other people.
