Expert Says ‘Very Premature’ to Close Colleges, ‘No Proof’ That Lockdowns Have Actually Helped COVID

Will it ever end? Biden says a ‘winter of death’ is coming, Fauci says wearing masks on planes will not go away, and businesses are going back to stricter work-from-home policies. “One medical expert suggests it’s ‘premature’ for U.S. colleges to be closing and announcing remote starts to the spring 2022 semester” reports Fox News.

Over the weekend, several colleges and universities announced decisions to shut down campuses due to growing fear over the latest omicron coronavirus variant. Thus far, the variant seems to be the least virulent and experts have called it a positive step towards being endemic, rather than a pandemic.

On Saturday, Harvard University said students will start the year off remotely for at least the first three weeks of January due to a “rapid rise” in coronavirus cases. “Other colleges such as Yale University and Penn State University haven’t announced a remote start to the spring 2022 semester but have told students t0 be prepared for a change if necessary” reports Fox News.

Fox News medical analyst and professor of medicine at New York University Langone Medical Center said it’s “very premature” for colleges to discuss plans to shift to remote learning for the spring 2022 semester.

Universities are already a “built-in quarantine situation” which allows for rapid testing and any additional measures such as providing booster vaccinations. “Since it’s a university, if you look at it completely medically, it’s a built-in quarantine situation,” Dr. Siegel said.

“What do you got at a university? The ability to quarantine people, the ability to study a whole population, the ability to rapidly test everyone, the ability to make sure everybody is vaccinated.” Dr. Siegel said there’s “no proof” that sending students back home decreases the spread of the coronavirus.

“There’s no proof whatsoever that lockdowns have actually helped COVID and that sending college students home from school decreases the spread of COVID. What do you mean they’re home? What do you think they’re doing? What are they doing? They are probably spreading it within their household, within their zip code. I’m not convinced that closing schools decreases national spread of this virus. Where’s the proof of that?,” Dr. Siegel questioned.

As many speculate, Dr. Siegel also thinks motivations behind closings are not simply medical, or “science” related. “In other words, what motivates a university to close? It’s probably a liability, right? That’s not a medical issue,” Dr. Siegel said. “They’re thinking of if we get too many cases and somebody’s kid gets sick, and we get blamed for it. But I think that that’s the mindset, pretty much.”

    How many people get a “cold” when the seasons change?
    How many colds can a person be infected with in a year?
    How many people die from a cold every year?
    HEY STUPID! DEMON RATS simply want to disturb every aspect of normal life for everybody in the world!
    And FAUX-XI wants his HITLERIAN TYRANNY to be followed. He wants to make money with the “””JABS”””!

    Locking down education stops indoctrination. That is a great place to start.

There’s nothing more reassuring than a President telling Americans that no matter how much they are suffering, more is coming.

Biden was asked the question “how many of the nation’s kids will you be able to get vaccinated before you need more money from Congress?”

“We’ll get through at least this year. We, we do need more money. But we don’t just need more money for vaccines for children eventually…”

And then Biden said this harrowing statement: “We need more money to plan for the second pandemic.”

He then emphasizes, “there’s going to be another pandemic. We have to think ahead. And that’s not something the last outfit did very well; that’s something we’ve been doing fairly well” he adds before concluding, “that’s why we need the money.”
