Measures implemented in the school setting to contain the COVID19 pandemic: a rapid review, Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews
Authors'conclusions Our review suggests that a broad range of measures implemented in the school setting can have positive impacts on the transmission of SARS ‐CoV‐2, and on healthcare utilisation outcomes related to COVID‐19. The certainty of the evidence for most intervention‐outcome combinations is very low, and the true effects of these measures are likely to be substantially different from those reported here. Measures implemented in the scho ol setting may limit the number or proportion of cases and deaths, and may delay the progression of the pandemic. However, they may also lead to negative unintended conse...

Real blood does occur with an identifiable cause such as long distance running or heavy exercise, or milk protein allergy/sensitivity that improves with a milk-restricted diet. Many more serious causes are associated with heavier or more recalcitrant bleeding, increased defecation, abdominal pain, poor eating an...
