Florida’s Coronavirus Cases Among Children More than Double in Past Month

Florida’s confirmed coronavirus cases in children 17 and younger in the past month increased 137 percent, according to the state health department’s Statistics & Data Division.

The number of such cases stood at 39,735 on Aug. 9 — up from 16,797 on July 9, CNN reported Tuesday.

Coronavirus-related hospitalizations for children increased from 213 to 436, a 105 percent hike, while child deaths grew from four to seven during that time period, CNN reported.

The numbers follow a report by the American Academy of Pediatrics and the Children’s Hospital Association showing a 90 percent increase in coronavirus cases among U.S. children over the past four weeks. The state’s percentage of increase in child cases surpasses the nationwide metric in that category, CNN reported.
