    A panel of scientists from Oxford and Cambridge Universities has told the British government that school age children are more likely to be hit by lightning than to die of coronavirus. They characterized the danger of coronavirus from reopening the schools as "tiny" and said that it was safer for children to be exposed to the virus at a younger age when it was not dangerous to them and build immunity for later in life when it could be more severe.
