Collapse )The study showed that about 30 percent of childhood Covid-19 cases deemed “severe” and more than half of Covid-19 cases deemed “critical” were among children less than 1 year old. Though the overall numbers were small — 7 infants had critical illness and 33 suffered severe illness — it did show that younger children faced a higher likelihood of more dangerous outcomes.
Infants appear more vulnerable than toddlers and elementary school kids.
The proportion of severe and critical cases was 10.6 %, 7.3%, 4.2%, 4.1% and 3.0% for the age group of <1, 1-5, 6-10, 11-15 and ≥16 years, respectively.
Overall, though, only a small number of children under 10 years old are requiring hospitalization because of Covid-19.
В США,  только 2% детей с Ковид-19 нужна госпитализация.
