Missouri Gov. Mike Parson (R) “indicated both certainty and acceptance that the coronavirus will spread among children when they return to school this fall,” the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Said Parson: “These kids have got to get back to school…. And if they do get COVID-19, which they will — and they will when they go to school — they’re not going to the hospitals…. They’re going to go home and they’re going to get over it.”
He added: “We gotta move on. We can’t just let this thing stop us in our tracks.”
