Cheers, fears and some tears as kids head back to school

A wide range of emotions is on display as students head back to school this week after a long enforced break from the physical classroom due to Covid-19. Mindful of public health concerns, authorities have put in place strict SOPs to circumvent further spread of infection but while some children can't wait to rejoin their friends in school, others may take a while more to adjust.

Another White House staffer has tested positive for coronavirus, US media reported Wednesday, the latest case among Donald Trump’s administration since last week’s election.

Political director Brian Jack’s diagnosis came over the weekend, after he attended a Nov 3 election day event at the White House, CNN and the New York Times reported.

Another advisor also tested positive, according to the newspaper, but was not identified nor was it stated if the person attended election night events at the president’s residence.

These new cases come in addition to recent coronavirus-positive results for Trump’s chief of staff Mark Meadows, Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson and aide David Bossie, who was tapped to lead the president’s legal challenges to the election results.

In October, Trump himself tested positive for the virus, which has killed over 240,000 in the US, but quickly returned to the campaign trail after doctors gave him a battery of treatments, including an experimental antibody cocktail.

Trump’s wife, son and multiple advisors and aides also have fallen ill with the virus since last month.

The numbers of new infections, which topped 200,000 on Tuesday in the Johns Hopkins University tally, has smashed through records the past two weeks.
