U.S. Health Secretary Alex Azar said on Monday he was hopeful American schools would reopen in the fall, despite reports of a rare inflammatory syndrome in children that is believed to be linked to the coronavirus.

"We'll have to see how the disease progresses over the summer but I'm quite hopeful. I think we need to get back to school," Azar said in an interview with Fox News Channel.
