Children Covid cases hospitalizations deaths facts vs media government sensationalized propaganda, Near zero percent deaths and 1 percent hospitalized, Why are they lying?
“two papers published May 19 in the journal of Hospital Pediatrics found pediatric hospitalizations for COVID were overcounted by at least 40%, carrying potential implications for nationwide figures used to justify vaccinating children.”...The Defender
“it is universally known that children virtually never die from COVID-19 and given that children have a very strong immune system, they are more likely than adults to have an over-reaction to the shot.”…Dr. Steven Roth
“There is not yet enough evidence on the use of vaccines against COVID-19 in children to make recommendations for children to be vaccinated against COVID-19. Children and adolescents tend to have milder disease compared to adults. However, children should continue to have the recommended childhood vaccines.”…WHO

“COVID cases rising among kids
As schools reopen, children’s hospitals ‘feel the squeeze'”
children are filling hospital intensive care beds instead of classrooms
in record numbers, more even than at the height of the pandemic. Many
are too young to get the vaccine, which is available only to those 12
parents, administrators and politicians around the U.S., especially in states
like Florida and Texas, where Republican governors have barred schools from
making youngsters wear masks.
With millions of children returning to classrooms this month, experts say the
stakes are unquestionably high.
Very high infection rates in the community “are really causing our children’s
hospitals to feel the squeeze,” said Dr. Buddy Creech, a Vanderbilt University
infectious disease specialist who is helping lead research on Moderna’s
vaccine for children under 12. Creech said those shots probably won’t be
available for several months.”
2 hallmarks of the fake news media stand out:
- Attacking Republicans.
- Quoting a “specialist” working for a big Pharma company.
From the American Academy of Pediatrics.
“The age distribution of reported COVID-19 cases was provided on the health department websites of 49 states, New York City, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and Guam. Since the pandemic began, children represented 14.4% of total cumulated cases. For the week ending August 12, children were 18.0% of reported weekly COVID-19 cases.
A smaller subset of states reported on hospitalizations and mortality by age; the available data indicate that COVID-19-associated hospitalization and death is uncommon in children.
At this time, it appears that severe illness due to COVID-19 is uncommon among children. However, there is an urgent need to collect more data on longer-term impacts of the pandemic on children, including ways the virus may harm the long-term physical health of infected children, as well as its emotional and mental health effects.”
- Among states reporting, children ranged from 1.6%-3.5% of their total cumulated hospitalizations, and 0.2%-1.9% of all their child COVID-19 cases resulted in hospitalization
- Among states reporting, children were 0.00%-0.25% of all COVID-19 deaths, and 7 states reported zero child deaths
- In states reporting, 0.00%-0.03% of all child COVID-19 cases resulted in death
