Apparently research has disproven the idea that school transmission is more significant rate than the average community transmission. Myths linger on.
I thought the research went further than that and claimed the tranmission rate was insignificant? One problem with that "research" is the why of it. Is the virus the kids get different from the ones adults get? If it is the same virus then transmission issues come down to other factors. And what hasnt been proven false is the matter of other viruses like the flu where schools are a main transmission agent. ( you ask any teacher) So we have a conundrum that needs explaining. Presumably the "research" is only statistical in nature using sample theory, its not infallible.
