Covid-19 hospitalization rates among children are on a rise in the United States.
An average of 4.3 children under the age of five in 100,000 are being hospitalized with the disease and this has been the case since the week ended on January 1.
There are many children who have been exposed to the coronavirus and have not been fully vaccinated, and it is really a thing to worry about.
This rate rose from 2.6 children last week, according to data from United Nations Centres for Disease Control and Prevention(CDC)
“For our young children, those who are not yet eligible for immunization, it is very important that we surround ourselves with vaccinated people to protect themselves,” CDC director Dr. Rochelle Walensky stated on Friday.
“I would say that the best way to keep those children safe is to vaccinate them as they are fit and surrounded by siblings and parents who vaccinate themselves,” Walensky added.
An increase of 48% from last week on December 4 and a significant increase in hospital admissions has been seen during the epidemic in the country.
New hospital admissions for children under the age of 18 with Covid-19 certified are already at the recording level, at an average of 797 each day.
According to data from the CDC and the US Department of Health and Human Services. This is the highest ever, and we have risen 80% in the last week.
During the Covid-19 epidemic, approximately 82,000 children were hospitalized with Covid-19, according to the latest CDC data.
