Children's Covid-19 rates

26 Sept. 2020. Children in the U.S. are now more likely to get infected from SARS-CoV-2 viruses, with their infection rates rising faster than the population at large. Those data were collected last week by American Academy of Pediatrics and Children’s Hospital Association, and displayed this week by business research company Statista.

Despite claims by Donald Trump and others that children are “virtually immune” from Covid-19 infections, data from AAP and CHA show a rapid and continuous rise in U.S. children’s infections since April. The per capita rate of 780 per 100,000 children reported in the groups’ mid-September survey is the highest recorded so far and rising at a faster rate than the population as a whole. And, Covid-19 infections among children now make up 10 percent of all U.S. infections.

AAP and CHA collect data on Covid-19 infections among children each week from health authorities in 49 states, New York City, District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and Guam. The top age of children reported by the health authorities range from 14 to 20.
