A statement that often comes up (on here and elsewhere), is that there are no documented cases of child to parent/teacher transmission worldwide. Something I've taken at face value, but perhaps wondered a little if that's because many schools were locked down prior to the big spikes of the beginning of the year.
I repeated this quote to someone recently who is a good deal less sceptical than myself, who said:
.what about that summer camp in Georgia, USA. several hundred kids all got it there. That's what schools would be like if they were open now!
I hadn't heard of the story, and went away to read a few articles on it. Sure enough, 200+ cases, lots of stores about no masks, a few smuggled away facts about a people without symptoms, less information about how many (if any) were hospitalised, and very little facts about their transmission rates back to parents, carers, camp organisers etc etc.
So ... does this debunk the popular sceptic line about 'zero cases worldwide of child to parent/teacher transmissions'. Or is there some good sceptical comebacks behind this particular story.
ps, if you just google 'georgia covid camp' you'll get a good bunch of mainstream media articles on the topic.
Thanks in advance!
