COVID: Child Cases On The Decline
THE NUMBER OF U.S. CHILDREN TESTING POSITIVE FOR COVID-19 FALLS FOR THE FIFTH TIME IN AS MANY WEEKS.
(CNN) – The number of COVID-19 cases among U.S. children keeps dropping.
The American Academy of Pediatrics reports less than 71,000 kids tested positive for the virus last week.
That’s the fifth decline in as many weeks.
Health officials say COVID-19 still poses a less serious threat to children compared to adults.
10 of the 43-states that provided death data say they have had no covid-related fatalities for children.
Although U.S. cases are going down overall, the country passed 500,000 deaths on Monday.
