Which group...is this the same group that is politically motivated that issued the statement about gender (ACPeds)? That group is a bunch of political hacks if it's that one. I can't believe that this group represents a consensus on all pediatricians.

I know fox, but this is from the Florida governor Tuesday. Live interview. At least give it a chance and watch it. The idea with the early closings was to flatten the curve and to free up ICU space. It did that...now we just have to mitigate it and keep it at bay by doing our part and wearing mask. Shut down's IMHO shouldn't be happening...just distancing and wearing mask.
Yes, it is the group you are thinking of.

Honest question, is the "rest of the world" testing 5-600K people a day? We are finding a ton of asymptomatic cases and many that aren't because of mass testing and some surge in some sunbelt states.
So I just decided to look at Germany, since that was one of the places Trump tweeted about going back to school. We're testing around 1,300 per million. Germany is testing right under 1,000 per million. Germany's positive tests are under 10 people per million. We're at around 120 per million. For reference Germany's population is 83 million and we're at 328 million.

If you take NYC out of the example what do you get? I'm not sure I believe any the numbers out of NYC early. Their positive test and death rate is massive per 100K compared to the rest of the country including Texas and Florida's right now...night and day bigger in NYC and that general area than the rest of the country.

I heard on NPR that Germany’s positive test rate is about 3.5% and the US is around 9%. When you think that Germany has only 4 cities over 1MM and the US has 4 over 2MM and 10 over 1MM I’m not sure that spread is all that surprising.

Those numbers were the average over the last seven days, so the big spike that happened in NYC a few months ago wouldn't affect them. But yeah, overall deaths in the US NYC accounts for 16%. GLOBAL deaths NYC accounts for 4%...

Overall I agree with you guys. Wear masks, wash hands, distance, go about daily life just more careful.

American Association of Pediatricians announces they are opposed to Florida Gov DeSantis Exec Order for the state to open all schools next month due to the current COVID situation in the state

Not sure who American Association of Pediatricians is, but American College of Pediatricians and American Academy of Pediatricians are not the same group. Of course, don't let that stop you from commenting and confusing and conflating the groups.

If you think the curve has been flattened anywhere in the US you are delusional.

Just to show the source, this (AAP) is the group you were thinking of:

Report that colleges could lose up to $43 BILLION in tuition rates if the Govt doesn't allow International students to stay in the US and take courses online if campus can't reopen

I know I'm behind by a couple of days, but Trump didn't write the immigration laws, if ICE had to send anyone home it's because they are just doing their job. Wouldn't Congress have to write something to further loosen the regulations on Visas?

There had been temporary restrictions placed on F1 and J1 student visa holders placed for COVID that allowed them to stay and take classes online for the remainder of the Spring and for all of Summer.

However on Monday July 6th those measures were removed.

All consumption and sales of alcoholic beverages must be stopped, alcohol causes many deaths and health problems to the consumers and the innocent victims. Facts, no brainer Stillwater and Norman should outlaw alcoholic beverages now. Step up, git ur dun.
