Does it tho? Does it really?
no

it is about the same

and it is 3x LESS deadly for children than the seasonal flu, and that is with vaccines

there is ZERO reason to keep schools closed

Most of the people that you know were probably being careful and minimizing risk.

Exactly. 26 school age children have died from Covid-19. Here's the CDC data: LINK
Meanwhile, roughly 1800 children died from H1N1 in 2009 and there were no widespread school closings. LINK

re: The positive benefits of protests and indoor political rallies.
From your H1N1 link, "Between 8,330 and 17,160 people died during that time from H1N1, with a middle range of about 12,000, the CDC said. But between 880 and 1,800 children died, up to 13,000 adults under the age of 65 and only 1,000 to 2,000 elderly."

Your 1,800 number for child deaths is the upper limit but your link shows a lower limit of 800.

The CDC historical data now reports H1N1 US death total as 12,469. LINK

If you're young and reasonably healthy Covid presents absolutely no danger to you. Hundreds of people on Rules Jr's aircraft carrier got it, and very few had any symptoms at all. Only one death.

Just stay away from the elderly and quit putting positive people back in nursing homes! (I'm looking at you, Cuomo, you moron.)

Yep, and closing beaches and telling people to stay in their homes was the dumbest advice ever; all viruses including Covid-19 doesn't last long in sunlight/ultraviolet light.

And yea, hundreds of children dying from H1N1 in 2009 didn't warrant school closings but 26 with pre-existing conditions from Covid-19 definitely justified closing all schools in the United States.

The school problem arises because children have parents and grandparents. We need to know more about infection and transmission rates from children to adults. Opening schools might be relatively safe but we don't know that. A lot of parents are worried.

re: The positive benefits of protests and indoor political rallies.
I'm talking about school closings. H1N1 killed a lot more school age children than has Covid-19 yet there were no school closings in response to H1N1. How many children had to die during the Obama administration to justify school closings? There were less than 10 children dead due to Covid-19 when they made the decision and all of them had some type of condition that made them susceptible. You guys are intellectually dishonest and refuse to admit that there's a celebrated double-standard when the Democrats are in control vs Republicans. And because liberals control nearly every form of media, Democrats get to define the narrative.

How can it be a double standard if it goes both ways?

Alright, not sure if you’ve been drinking or what but both sides can have double standards when the “other guy” is in office. Wasn’t a hard concept at all.

As I said, the difference is one side, the liberal progressive Democrats, control nearly ever aspect of media: all of the major news networks, ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC, etc., newspapers, the New York Times, The Washington Post, the LA Times, etc. all social media, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, etc. all of the major tech companies, Google, Microsoft, Apple, etc., all of Hollywood, all major universities, Harvard, Yale, Columbia, Stanford, etc. hell the list just goes on and on. So yea, it cuts both ways but one one side dominates the landscape.

What I was saying, per my exact words, was that a double standard can be applied to both sides when their person isn’t in office. No?

Yes, read my last sentence again. But just because the double standard applies to both sides, doesn't mean that the standard is applied equally.

Nah I can agree on that. And on the vast majority of the media being insanely biased. You’re not wrong.

I'm pretty sure that most of them died WITH the Kung Flu as opposed to OF the Kung Flu, AND that they had other serious conditions prior

there really has been very little reported on this, google "26 children coronavirus" and nothing comes up that gives any useful info...
