The Left Embraces Pediatric Panic-Porn and a “Mysterious Inflammatory Condition” in Children

If you have not yet encountered this talking point from pro-shutdown-partisans or their useful idiots, you will. It is a tale meant to slow or stop re-opening efforts in their tracks—a “Mysterious Inflammatory Condition” in Children, similar to Kawasaki’s Disease.

ICYMI: Democrat Jan Schmidt is a Bigger Threat to You Than this Virus (And she’s not Alone) 

The source of which is attributed to the chronically incorrect, Dr. Anthony Fauci, which produced this. Seeds planted the media grows the terror without any context.

NYT Pediatric Panic Porn

The most disgusting kind of panic porn is kiddie panic porn. Like this in @nytimes
today. The reality? Kawasaki disease is surprisingly common – 5,500 children under 5 were hospitalized with it in the US in 2009, per @cdcgov

And there is more here, care of Dr. Andrew Bostom, which includes this critically important factoid.

The Center For Disease Control and Prevention in its “COVIDView” 5/1/20  declared covid-19 hospitalization rates for children (0-17 years old) were “much lower than influenza hospitalization rates during recent influenza seasons.”

And this one.

 Finally, a refreshingly sober 5/9/20 perspective on the ginned-up covid19-Kawasaki Disease hysteria Dr. Fauci was content to fan, based upon review of 100 purported “cases,” concluded the syndrome was “rare, “children seem to improve rapidly,” “and children are probably still spared from most morbidities and mortality linked to COVID-19 infection.”

In other words, the syndrome is statistically as likely to manifest in kids who get typical flu or a common cold or any other coronavirus (of which there are many) as anything else. And anyone with kids or any experience in a school knows that kids get and share germs rapidly and to their mutual benefit. Without this interaction, they will fail to build natural defenses that will serve them for the rest of their lives.

We should also note, from the linked piece, that a super-majority of the children who do present with any complications related to respiratory infections, like their adult counterparts, have one or more preexisting conditions.

One final point to share courtesy of Sen. Paul (see also Dr. Paul) about keeping kids out of school any longer.

…With regard to going back to school, one thing left out of that discussion is mortality. Shouldn’t we be discussing what the mortality of children [i.e., with covid-19] is? The mortality for zero to 18 approaches zero. It almost approaches zero. Between 18 and 45, the mortality in New York [City] was 10 out of 100,000 [now 18/100,000, i.e., 0.018%, for those 18-44].

…I think one size fits all is ridiculous. We ought to be doing it [re-opening] school district by school district and the power dispersed because people make wrong predictions. The history will be wrong prediction after wrong prediction starting with (disgraced hypocrite NeilFerguson in England…As much as I respect you (Dr. Fauci), I don’t think you’re the end-all…If we keep kids out of school for another year what’s going to happen [is that] the poor and underprivileged kids are not going to learn for a full year. I think we should look at our kids getting back to school. I think it’s a huge mistake if we don’t open the schools in the fall.

Another way to spin that, if you find the need, would be to point out that keeping these underprivileged and minority kids (in particular) at home for no reason other than that it feeds your fear-frenzied TDS political agenda, is racist.

The Andrew Bostom piece is loaded with links and details and worth a complete read.
