Many nice things in this blog, but your "anti-vaxer" approach to covid is a great pity. In this case---you continually propogate the claim "there having been no recorded cases, anywhere in the world, of teachers having caught coronavirus from their pupils." This is just false. Read today's New York Times article about what happened in Israel in May, where hasty reopening (incl of schools) restarted reinfections: https://www.nytimes.com/2020/08/04/world/middleeast/coronavirus-israel-schools-reopen.html?action=click&module=Top%20Stories&pgtype=Homepage

"Anti-vaxer"?? In what possible way am I an "anti-vaxer"? You may disagree with this, but throwing around offensive insults doesn't exactly warm me to your argument.

As for the schools claim - yes, that Israel case looks bad. High school, not primary school. I don't know. I've certainly seen enough claims about lack of transmission from children to adults in the past, but maybe this is the refutation.
