Children are more at risk of long-term harm if they do not attend school than if they return to the classroom despite coronavirus, the UK’s chief medical officers have warned.In a joint statement issued ahead of the reopening of schools next month, the advisers said children have an “exceptionally low risk of dying” from Covid-19.They said “very few, if any” children and teenagers would come to long-term harm from the virus solely by attending school, while there was a “certainty” of harm from not returning.The chief and deputy chief medical officers said schools were not a “common route of transmission”, and that teachers were not at any increased risk of dying compared to the general working-age population.However, they noted that data from UK and international studies suggested transmission in schools may be largely staff to staff rather than pupils to staff.“This reinforces the need to maintain social distancing and good infection control inside and outside classroom settings, particularly between staff members and between older children and adults,” they said.The advisers noted that reopening schools has not been usually followed by a surge in Covid-19 transmission but it could push the reproduction rate – the so-called R rate – above one.If this happened it would require “local action and could mean societal choices” of imposing limitations on different parts of the community, they added.Signatories to the consensus statement included England’s Professor Chris Whitty, Scotland’s Dr Gregor Smith, Wales’ Dr Frank Atherton and Northern Ireland’s Dr Michael McBride.Whitty told reporters the joint statement was not guidance to parents but a laying out of the evidence of “things we know with confidence, the things that we think are probable and also some of the things we don’t know and making clear there is always some residual risk”.He said that there was “clear” evidence that the chances of children dying from Covid were “incredibly small” and they were less likely to get severe illness and end up in hospital due to the virus.He said: “So the reason that is important to lay out is the chances of children catching Covid and then getting long-term serious problems as a result of it, solely due to going to school are incredibly small.“They’re not zero, but they’re incredibly small. The chances of many children being damaged by not going to school are incredibly clear and therefore the balance of risk is very strongly in favour of children going to school because many more are likely to be harmed by not going than harmed by going, even during this pandemic.”The warning came as Labour leader Keir Starmer said Boris Johnson’s commitment to get all children back to school was at “serious risk” after a “week of chaos” over exam results.He said the last two weeks have been “wasted clearing up a mess of the government’s own making”, telling The Observer: “I want to see children back at school next month, and I expect the prime minister to deliver on that commitment.“However, the commitment is now at serious risk after a week of chaos, confusion and incompetence from the government,” he added.“Ministers should have spent the summer implementing a national plan to get all children back to school. Instead, the last two weeks have been wasted clearing up a mess of the government’s own making over exam results.”Johnson said earlier this month that getting all children back to school full-time in England in September is the “right thing for everybody”, insisting they are “safe” and “Covid secure”.However, teachers, scientists, opposition politicians and the children’s commissioner for England Anne Longfield have previously called for improvements to testing before pupils return.Related...

Microsoft has always been good at working with developers, right from its earliest days as a language vendor. Its program has evolved over the years, from a top-down, Redmond-driven approach that peaked with the regular MSDN DVDs of documentation, to today’s community-based program wrapped around Microsoft Docs, Microsoft Learn, a global team of Azure Developer Advocates, and an ever-growing set of tools and frameworks developed on GitHub.The Windows Community Toolkit: a .NET starter kit Working with the community has produced interesting results with more accurate and timely documentation using GitHub to manage content and a series of community-led open source projects. One of the more important projects is the Windows Community Toolkit, a series of functions, controls, and services for .NET and UWP applications. It’s a project that’s only going to get more important with the transition from the older .NET Framework to the .NET Core-based .NET 5 and rollout of both Project Reunion and the cross-platform Multiplatform App UI (MAUI) framework.To read this article in full, please click here

To say that 2020 has been a strange year is undoubtedly the understatement of the century. As a result of COVID-19, we’ve had to change and adapt at lightning speed — in most cases swapping offices for spare rooms (if you’re one of the lucky ones), and kitchen tables (or beds) for desks. These changes come with their own challenges. For example, struggling to stay focused and motivated when working remotely, dealing with countless video calls, and communicating effectively with peers and managers from a distance. The list goes on. [Read: 7 tips on lockdown career advancement — for employees… This story continues at The Next Web
