To open or not reopen our schools during the COVID-19 pandemic is a contentious topic that is currently being debated by parents, doctors, public health professionals, politicians and teachers. There are strong opinions on both sides of the issue.
On this episode of Causes or Cures, Dr. Eeks chats with Dr. Jonas Ludvigsson who will explain why he believes it's safe for schools to be open. Dr. Ludvigsson is both a pediatrician and epidemiologist in Sweden. Between 2011-2014, he was the chairman of the Swedish Epidemiological Association and between 2014-2016, he was the chair of the Swedish Society of Pediatrics and has done extensive research in the area of pediatrics, as well as set up the first national gastrointestinal pathology register. He is an honorary professor at Columbia University School of Medicine in New York City and at Nottingham University School of Medicine in the UK. He's on the editorial board of the European Journal of Epidemiology and in 2019, he was named the staff pediatrician for the Swedish Television Station TV4. In May of 2020, he wrote a paper, Children are unlikely to be the main drivers of the COVID-19 pandemic , and he will discuss his current viewpoints on this issue, as it relates to schools.
