  • Covid-19 has killed at least 121 people below the age of 21 across the U.S., nearly two-thirds of whom were Black and Hispanic people, a new study published Tuesday by the CDC said.
  • The study comes days after reports surfaced alleging that Trump administration officials were interfering with the CDC’s process for publishing such studies.
  • About half of the deaths were among people between the ages of 18 and 21.
