Just to follow up on this post from earlier about a blue-check doctor who thinks it’s totally fine to keep kids at home to fight COVID-19, here’s blue-check lawyer Walker Bragman who is making the same argument with the added wrinkle that the United States — the largest economy in the world — needs to copy the tiny island nation of New Zealand in a quest to reach zero Covid cases:
Hospital workers are overwhelmed. We need to be shutting down, not sending kids back to schools and their parents back to offices.
Remote until zero COVID—like New Zealand. That’s the humane solution. Anything less is gambling with human life.pic.twitter.com/3zMDpOo2oS
