According to the most recent data from the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and the Children’s Hospital Association, about 30,000 child Covid-19 cases were recorded in the US in only one week, marking the second consecutive weekly increase. 

Business Insider claims that Since the start of the epidemic in early 2020, over 14.9 million children have tested positive for Covid-19 in the nation, according to the report. 

According to the Xinhua news agency, about 105,000 of these instances had been added in the previous four weeks. 

The percentage of kid Covid cases for the week ending November 3 was 13.2%. According to the report, there has been a “significant undercount” of Covid-19 instances among youngsters. 

The AAP stated that more age-specific data collection is required to determine the degree of disease caused by novel variations as well as any potential long-term impacts. 

The Academy said, “It is crucial to recognize that the epidemic has had an immediate impact on children’s health, but it is as critical that we identify and address the long-term implications on the physical, mental, and social well-being of this generation of children and teenagers.
