More than 97,000 children in the US tested positive for coronavirus in the last two weeks of July, a new report says.

While more classrooms are scheduled to reopen this week, some students who just started their school year must go back to virtual learning because of new infections among students and teachers.

More than 97,000 children in the US tested positive for coronavirus in the last two weeks of July, according to a new report published by the American Academy of Pediatrics and the Children's Hospital Association.The researchers found a 40% increase in child coronavirus cases in the states and cities that were studied during those two weeks.The age range for children differed by state, with some defining children as only those up to age 14 and one state -- Alabama -- pushing the limit to 24.As new academic year looms, public school nurses call for more funding to battle the coronavirusAt least 86 children have died as a result of the disease since May, according to the new report.

In Florida, two teenagers died earlier this month, marking the state's sixth and seventh coronavirus deaths among children 17 and under. The new study and along with previous research directly contradict President Donald Trump's claims that children are"almost immune" to Covid-19.While more classrooms are scheduled to reopen this week, some students who just started the school year must go back to virtual learning because of new infections among students and teachers.Florida schools will reopen despite CDC guidanceFlorida is still grappling with one of the worst infection rates in the country. As of Monday, more than 17% of tests taken turned out to be positive -- the fifth highest rate of any state in the US, according to Johns Hopkins data.Black and Hispanic children are impacted more severely by coronavirus, research shows But schools in at least 12 Florida counties will reopen this week for in-person learning, according to the Florida Education Association and school district websites.Last month, the director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said officials in counties where the test positivity rate is higher than 5% might consider keeping classrooms closed to students.Yet out of those 12 counties where schools will reopen this week, at least nine had test positivity rates higher than 5% as of Saturday, according to the Florida Department of Health. Track the virus in your state and across the USStudents who returned to school must stay home again North Paulding High School in Georgia made headlines after a student posted a photo of a packed hallway, with virtually no one appearing to wear a mask. Georgia school will temporarily move online after 9 new coronavirus casesJust a week after the school reopened, North Paulding is moving to online-only classes for at least Monday and Tuesday. At least"six students and three staff members who were in school for at least some time last week ... have since reported to us that they have tested positive," Principal Gabe Carmona wrote in a letter to parents.The teen who shot the photo of the packed hallway, Hannah Watters, said she's received threats for posting the image online. But the sophomore said she's not deterred and just wants everyone to know how risky the situation is. "We could have just delayed opening like many other schools," she said."They kind of sent us to school and used us as guinea pigs to see what would happen later on."Without childcare, it will be a rough road to recoveryThe Cherokee County School District in Georgia said 19 students and four teachers or staff members have tested positive for since the start of the school year one week ago. At least 16 schools across the county are impacted, the district said. Students and teachers affected must quarantine for two weeks.And another Georgia school district, the Barrow County School System, scrapped plans to reopen in-person next week after more than 90 staff members were forced to quarantine due to a confirmed, suspected, or possible exposure to Covid-19. 'This is all wholly preventable' More than 5 million Americans have been infected with coronavirus, and more than 162,000 have died, according to Johns Hopkins data.What Trump's Covid-19 executive actions actually meanYet many Americans still aren't heeding the basic advice that would significantly reduce the spread -- and would help get more students back into classrooms safely, doctors say.Why the CDC wants you to wear a mask"We're still generating 50,000 to 70,000 new cases a day, 1,000 Americans are dying every day," said Dr. Ashish Jha, director of the Harvard Global Health Institute."This is all wholly preventable."The rate of daily Covid-19 deaths dipped nationwide in early July, but has steadily increased since then, according to Johns Hopkins data. Nationwide, 299 deaths were reported on July 5. On August 5, that number had jumped to 1,372. And for five days in a row last week, more than 1,000 Americans died each day.

EMSISD I wonder how many kids got coronavirus from their parents taking them on vacation DURING A PANDEMIC? Odd headline for what the article actually contains.

And we’re just hearing about this? Omg Bullshit network don’t believe a word of this Fake news. 50.8 MILLION KIDS IN SCHOOL IN THE USA Bullshit! The UNHumanRights should help stop this madness. Children are being abused. Kids are still in cages &only elite prisoners go home to be saved from virus. Our kids should not be forced to go to school to die. Trump must be stopped!

Those babies don't deserve this. Makes no sense Really embarrassing fake news Six months go by and you hear Zero of children being infected. Talk about sending them back to school and wamo 97,000? Politicians please pity for us oooohhh.. Na beg we dey beg oooohhh.. I don't believe you. 🇺🇸
