    Thank you! Your articles and models are so on point. Thank you so much for what you are offering. Keeping our county closed is completely nonsensical.

    Brian,

    Have you looked at this new claim that children are getting a rare inflammatory disease that may be caused by Covid19? That would be troubling if true and give those who want the lockdown to continue an argument that we can’t just protect the elderly and those with other health conditions.

    Thanks.

      Bill, I have followed this development and will continue to do so. We do not know much right now in my opinion. The medical community has said these cases are, despite the total counts, still quite rare in children (and it is worth noting that there were cases like this before the pandemic, but in much smaller numbers). But we do not know how rare because (assuming the correlation with COVID-19 turns out to be some form of causation) we do not know how many children have contracted COVID-19 (and we may never know). We also don’t know whether there are risk factors in addition to COVID-19 for developing this condition. I believe the CDC is studying this issue now. Lastly, it appears that there are effective treatments for this condition, but it appears there have been a handful of fatalities as well. This is obviously concerning to all parents. I will check on developments in this area every couple weeks. Thanks for your note.
