Thinking About Racial Disparities in COVID-19 Impacts Through a Science-Informed, Early Childhood Lens [developingchild.harvard.edu]

By Jack P. Shonkoff and David R. Williams, Center on the Developing Child, April 27, 2020 The COVID-19 virus is ruthlessly contagious and, at the same time, highly selective. Its capacity to infect is universal, but the consequences of becoming infected are not. While there are exceptions, children are less likely to show symptoms, older adults and those with pre-existing medical conditions are the most susceptible, and communities of color in the United States are experiencing dramatically...

This is a sloppy article by some under informed Harvard big shots. First this is not ruthlessly contagious we all carry the corona virus as a waste product of our cells just like we all have cancer cells. There is no scientific evidence that the flu is contagious at all. Then the test they give have a 80% failure rate for detecting this cell shedding toxin we are calling the flu. This is not a pandemic any more than a regular flu we get each year. The death rate is to date .034%. That is 34...
