The President of the United States, Donald Trump, has again contradicted the main scientific responsible in the fight against the coronavirus in the United States, Anthony Fauci, and has affirmed that believes "absolutely" that American schools should reopen.
"I absolutely believe that schools should be reopened," Trump said. "I do not consider that the country can return if the schools are closed (…) and I would firmly say that they should be opened ", He has insisted, while reminding that this decision must be made by the states, individually, but that "they will not be open if the schools are not."
As for Fauci, on his claims that schools should open cautiously and that, in some places, they should not reopen even in the fall, the US president has asserted that "they are not an acceptable response." In this context, he specified that older teachers "should perhaps stay out a little longer." Regarding the age ranges, he has clarified that the educational professionals who should not return to the classroom in person are those of 65 years, "maybe, if you want to be conservative, I would say 60", as reported by the CNN television channel.
"We are reopening our country. People want it open. Schools are going to open," said the US president. Trump has supported since the beginning of the Covid-19 crisis his inclination not to stop the activity of the United States and, later, to reopen the country as soon as possible, in confrontation with what experts and governors have advocated.
The United States is the country most affected by the coronavirus pandemic, with almost 1.4 million confirmed cases and more than 84,000 deaths.
