  1. SARS-CoV-2 may join H1N1 and the Flu as well as the common cold as viruses we as a society may have to learn to deal with on a long term instead of short term( like MERS) time frame. Either way the negative issues are building up with regard to mental, economic and society caused by the closing of our society. Just looking at education it has been shown that on line is not as good an experience as in classroom for some segments of our society. In science and math the USA is ranked 17 or lower so I question if we can afford to drop even more. Other countries have opened their schools without significant negative issues. We need to see how they have done it before we loose a precious generation of our children to ignorance.
