Kids Don’t Get Covid. Except When They Do. Part 2.

Check out the Covid Kid Project. This team of doctors and scientists are keeping track of kids across the nation who are testing positive for the virus, as well as hospitalizations and deaths. Thanks to Dr. Theresa Chapple for sharing this site info with me on Twitter.

This site looks at the national picture and breaks down information by region. I’m particularly interested in the Southeast Region. As of July 25, over 131,000 children have tested positive, 213 admitted to intensive care, and there have been 21 deaths.

There are numerous resources and charts, including graphs on racial and ethnic disparities. Also check out their blog, the COVIDKID Compass for updates and recent data (such as figuring out the Florida statistical debacle).

This looks like a great site with professional, unbiased research relating to kids and Covid.
