Cases of COVID-19 Have Reached a Record Breaking High in Children

Health Editor’s Note: Despite Trump’s comments that children ‘almost never get sick with  COVID-19’ and “are almost immune to it”, there have been 853,000 children who have tested positive for coronavirus, with 200,000 of those cases arriving during the month of October. The numbers mentioned here may even be low as children often are not tested or diagnosed with COVID-19 because they may have little to none of the symptoms such as fever, cough, and shortness of breath.  Fever and cough were found in just over half of the children in one study and shortness of breath was found in only 13%. Other common symptoms reported by adults are not seen in children at all. 

In many states children are back in school and we all know that when someone in a classroom has the flu, strep throat, common cold or even head lice others will easily pick it up. We cannot be surprised at the large increases in numbers of children becoming sick with coronavirus,  Rethinking the act of having children, especially those age groups who will find mask wearing troublesome, placed into real time scenarios where they can be easily infected by any child that has an active case of COVID-19 would not be out of order. Clearly, children do get coronavirus and can spread it to others, including their teachers and fellow students….Carol

    • No. The tests aren’t working…endless false negatives. Some only test positive on the days they die. VT gets its information from real doctors and nurses personally, not over the internet, folks we know. Nothing else can be trusted. Watch “the Good Doctor’s first episode of season 4

    • stevor, While the common cold is also a coronavirus, there is definitely a difference in COVID-19 and common cold when you test for it. People can test negative but still have COVID-19 and eventually test positive. It depends on where in or on the body the sample is taken. Some may be sick with what seems like COVID-19 and test negative and not test positive until the get a really deep sputum sample, from say the lungs. What we are seeing is that people do not want to come to the hospital for help and try to ride it out at home and by the time they can no longer breath easily on their own, they are very, very, ill and most probably might die.
