At the same time, the chief American expert on infectious diseases said that priority should be given to safety issues.
American schools and colleges may open, but officials should exercise caution and prioritize security issues, said Dr. Anthony Fauci.
In relation to schools, we should assume that they should open, said Fauci, Director of the National Institute of Allergy and infectious diseases.
“If everything is done correctly, it will not be dangerous, but, again, you need to be careful when people come from the street, “he said.” But I think if they adhere to the recommendations that are made for the return of people, everything should be fine.”
However, Fauci added that “the main factor should always be the safety, health, and well-being of children and teachers, as well as secondary consequences in the form of the spread of the virus among parents and other family members.
