Take Care Of The Elderly By Testing Their Caregivers

by Alexander Galetovic, Susana Mondsheinvia The Hill
Wednesday, July 1, 2020

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the incidence of COVID-19 deaths among those 65 years old and older is about 200 times that of people younger than 35. Because roughly half of all deaths of seniors occur in nursing homes, both in the United States and abroad, improving sanitary conditions seems to be the straightforward solution to reducing deaths among the elderly.

Focus On Teaching, Not Just Masks And Hand-Sanitizer

by Eric Hanushekvia EducationNext
Tuesday, June 30, 2020

Education discussions today have a time horizon of three months. In the fall, will we mix at-home with in-school? Does everybody have a digital hookup? Should we have police in schools? As important as these issues are, they have the unfortunate effect of pushing aside more fundamental issues that could have much greater impact. This twin crisis of Covid-19 and of societal recognition of deep-seated inequities must be directed toward essential school improvement.

Coronavirus Aid Should Go Directly To The People

by Lanhee J. Chen, David Cranevia The Hill
Sunday, June 28, 2020

As federal policymakers consider future legislation to address the economic challenges created by COVID-19, they should take the shortest route possible to get aid to those who need it. Where possible, the assistance should go directly to affected individuals and businesses, rather than through the states. If it’s not feasible for the aid to be sent to recipients directly, states should be held accountable for ensuring that those in need are actually getting it.

Andrew Cuomo and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio are at loggerheads over who gets to decide whether schools remained closed or open.
