Children still affected by Covid 19 in the US

 

More than 26,000 cases of COVID-19 in children were reported in the United States during the week ending Jan. 12, according to the latest report from the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and the Children’s Hospital Association.

The number is staggering, with more than 15.3 million U.S. children testing positive for COVID-19 since the start of the pandemic.

That’s about, 140,000 of those cases have been added in the last four weeks.

However, the reported cases likely represent a significant undercount of COVID-19 cases in children.

In addition, reductions or delays in reporting increase during vacation periods, according to the report.

More age-specific data are needed to assess the severity of disease associated with the new variants as well as potential longer-term effects, the report says.
