Some parents misled others about their kids' covid status, study finds

Some parents in the United States were dishonest about their children having the coronavirus or did not follow testing and quarantine guidelines, according to a study published Monday.

The parents' behaviors could have contributed to the spread of the coronavirus, said the study's authors, who included researchers from U.S. and British universities.

The study, though, may not be demographicall y representative of U.S. parents since people were not chosen through random sampling. Parents were recruited to participate through a panel of volunteer online survey takers. Also, 70 percent of the respondents were women.

More than 1.1 million people have died of the coronavirus in the United States, and more than 103 million cases have been reported, according to data tracked by The Washington Post. Globally, there have been more than 6.8 million deaths and 758 million infections because of the coronavirus, according to the World Health Organization.

The latest study on pandemic behavior in JAMA Network Open, a peer-reviewed publication, offers some clues about how the virus spread in the United States.

The researchers analyzed answers by 580 parents who had children under the age of 18 living with them during the course of the pandemic. The survey was conducted in December 2021.

Parents chose not to disclose their child's covid status most commonly because they said they wanted "to exercise personal freedom as a parent," the study authors stated. Parents also wanted their children to "resume a normal life."

Some parents were dishonest about their children's vaccination status to allow them to participate in activities; others said they covered up their children's covid status so they would not miss school; and still others said they did not tell the truth as they could not afford to miss work themselves, the researchers found.

This is what you get when you create panic and fear... also harassing and mistreating people because of their jab or infection status.

It wouldn’t matter, these same parents would still act the same way in any situation.
