According to a new report by the American Academy of Pediatrics and the association of children’s hospitals, the number of children infected with the new coronavirus in the United States increased by 40% in the second half of July, raising the proportion of children’s patients to the total number of confirmed cases in the United States to 8.8%.
the report, which summarizes data from 49 states in the United States, comes at a time of heated debate in the United States over whether schools should reopen in the autumn. The surge in children’s infections further confirms the absurdity of President Trump’s claim that children are “almost immune.”.
from July 16 to 30, 97078 children’s cases were newly reported, bringing the total number of children’s cases since the outbreak began in the United States to 338982, according to the study.
the report found that California, Florida and Arizona have the highest total number of child cases in the United States, with more than 20000 cases in each state. According to the census, Arizona has the highest infection rate among children, with more than 1000 cases per 100000 children, more than twice the average of 447 in the United States.
however, novel coronavirus pneumonia has only been reported in the United States so far, accounting for 0.06% of the total deaths in the United States, accounting for 0.03% of the total number of children diagnosed with pneumonia in the 86 cases.
