CDC sees marked rise in COVID-19 children’s hospitalizations – UPI.com

700 children age 17 years and younger in the United States are being hospitalized daily due to COVID-19, according to figures released Friday by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

This is more than twice the rate of hospitalizations seen in this age group seen in September, which was the height of the wave fueled by the Delta variant and coincided with the reopening of schools for in-person learning across the country, the agency said.
