Virginia Adds COVID Dashboard for Children Amid Rising Cases

The Virginia Department of Health has added an online dashboard to track coronavirus cases for all children 17 and younger.

The dashboard will report virus-related cases, hospitalizations and deaths of children, as well as data by week, pediatric age group and region, the health department said in a statement Monday.

The dashboard, which will be updated weekly on Fridays, was launched in response to the increasing number of COVID-19 cases among children since the end of the summer. Since March 2020, the health department reported 127,997 coronavirus cases among children ages 0-17, 380 hospitalizations and nine deaths.

Though children younger than 12 are not yet eligible for a coronavirus vaccine, the department recommends that everyone 12 and older get vaccinated.
