A Scientific Way to Assess Pandemic Threats
As science reporter Kayt Sukel writes for Forge, life now feels like a game of Would You Rather:
This summer, my husband and I asked ourselves: Would we rather send our kids back to school where they’ll benefit from traditional instruction and social interactions — but also potentially pick up and bring home a viral infection? Or would we rather keep them safe at home, knowing they will be miserable — and, thus, in true teen fashion, do their best to make us miserable, too? Talk about lose-lose.
