NYT Survey: Tracking Coronavirus Cases in U.S. Colleges and Universities


Colleges and Universities Openings Have Created Increase in COVID-19 Cases

Health Editor’s Note: The New York Times survey of 1,500 universities and colleges reports 51,000 coronavirus cases and 60 deaths. Spikes in cases have occurred as dorms have reopened and face to face classes began. Some of the states which have the largest numbers of coronavirus cases are Alabama, North Carolina, Texas, Florida, South Carolina, Iowa Georgia, Illinois, and California.  

There is no surprise here, but rather a disappointment that these facilities opened for classes as the U.S. are still in a pandemic situation.  College age students are certainly very capable of distance/online learning and there was really no reason to attempt to physically open large institutions that purposefully bring large groups of people together. Now some of the universities are sending sick people home and of course this means the families will also become infected and so on and so on and so on….Carol
