Weekly COVID Cases Among Children at Lowest Level Since May 2020: Report

Roughly 8,400 new COVID-19 cases among children were recorded last week — the lowest total since the outset of the pandemic in May 2020, according to the American Academy of Pediatrics.

The academy’s weekly report said about 10% of coronavirus cases in the U.S. consisted of children last week, with more than 4.03 million children testing positive for the virus since the start of the pandemic in March 2020, CNN reported.

Children represented about 6% to 20% of tests done, out of 11 states reporting testing numbers, with nearly 5% to 35% of youths testing positive for the coronavirus. Additionally, out of 23 states and New York City reporting hospitalization numbers, between 0.1% and 2% of coronavirus cases in children required hospitalization, CNN reported.

In regard to virus-related deaths, children make up less than a quarter in 43 states reporting numbers in that category, CNN reported. Eight of these states reported no deaths among children.
