Senator John Cornyn on COVID-19: “We Still Don't Know Whether Children Can Get It and Transmit It.”

I am not sure if this is just general stupidity on his part or if Republican Senator John Cornyn of Texas is just doing Trump’s bidding when it comes to reopening schools this fall, but here is what he said about COVID-19:

When asked about the safety of Texas students and teachers returning to classrooms, U.S. Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) appeared to question whether children can catch and transmit the new coronavirus, but data provided by doctors and government websites contradict his statement.

“We still don’t know whether children can get it and transmit it to others,” Cornyn said in an interview Thursday with NBC 5.

According to the Texas Department of State Health Services, more than 1,700 COVID-19 cases have been confirmed in people ages 0-19 statewide. More than 500 of those patients are under the age of 10. The state has published age information on just over 10% of total cases.

Emboldened is mine.

I hope for the love of God that whoever his opponent is this fall that they hammer Cornyn for his stupidity and lies.  He has to know that kids can catch COVID-19, or is he like Trump and has his head so far up someone else’s ass that he can’t read about COVID-19?   This sounds like another Tucker Carlson BS lie that kids cannot get COVID-19.  Therefore, no problem with opening up schools again. 

Trump is not the only dangerous man running the government.
