At present, there are over 6 million confirmed cases and over 183,000 deaths in COVID-19 in the United States. Due to the outbreak of large-scale infections in major universities in the United States, teachers’ unions in many places in the United States strongly resisted the current school opening plan, and filed a lawsuit against it in court, in order to ask the state government to cancel the existing school opening schedule.
At present, more than 750 universities in the United States, such as the University of North Carolina, Texas Christian University, University of Southern California and University of Alabama, have confirmed cases of COVID-19. Officials in Florida and Texas have already faced lawsuits involving restarting the program and authorizing the disclosure of the virus transmission rate in schools.
On the other hand, American public health experts believe that college students should be kept on campus for isolation after the outbreak, instead of sending them home as they are now. Lavina Coulare, an epidemiologist and spokesman of the American Society of Infectious Diseases, said that sending students home may make more people infected and make tracking almost impossible.
In Britain, major universities are also preparing for the resumption of classes. However, the British University Teachers’ Union is worried that the flow of personnel caused by the resumption of classes will “lead to disaster”, calling on universities not to resume face-to-face teaching for the time being, and to resume classes after Christmas to avoid the second peak of virus infection.
