I did. It says that 86 kids died of the covid.Load of nonsense. Go and have a look at the pdf yourself, specifically the bit about child hospitalization.
There you go. I'm f**king clairvoyant.Flu seasons vary in severity, however every year children are at risk
- CDC estimates that since 2010, flu-related hospitalizations among children younger than 5 years old have ranged from 7,000 to 26,000 in the United States.
- While relatively rare, some children die from flu each year. Since 2004-2005, flu-related deaths in children reported to CDC during regular flu seasons have ranged from 37 to 187 deaths. Even though the reported number of deaths during the 2017-2018 flu season was 187, CDC’s mathematical models that account for the underreporting of flu-related deaths in children estimate the actual number was closer to 600.
Sensationalist claims vs minimization. Hello - welcome to the rational center. I'm ready to take your questions.All I've done is provide context for your sensationalist claims about kids and Covid-19. I'm not surprised you choose to ignore inconvenient facts.
OK, why post a tweet claiming that 8.9% of children with the virus are being hospitalized, when if you looked at the pdf and the overall data you'd know that the current rate is 2% and continuing to trend down?Sensationalist claims vs minimization.

So 0.008% of children have been hospitalized. Interesting. And you didn't answer the question.Hi, thanks for your question.
Perhaps you might enjoy this report. Unfortunately data has not been collected for very long, so findings are not complete.
Hospitalization Rates and Characteristics of Children Aged <18 Years Hospitalized with Laboratory-Confirmed COVID-19 — COVID-NET, 14 States, March 1–July 25, 2020
Early Release / August 7, 2020 / 69
What is already known about this topic?
Most reported SARS-CoV-2 infections in children aged <18 years are asymptomatic or mild. Less is known about severe COVID-19 in children requiring hospitalization.
What is added by this report?
Analysis of pediatric COVID-19 hospitalization data from 14 states found that although the cumulative rate of COVID-19–associated hospitalization among children (8.0 per 100,000 population) is low compared with that in adults (164.5), one in three hospitalized children was admitted to an intensive care unit.
What are the implications for public health practice?
Children are at risk for severe COVID-19. Public health authorities and clinicians should continue to track pediatric SARS-CoV-2 infections. Reinforcement of prevention efforts is essential in congregate settings that serve children, including childcare centers and schools.
Yes but did you analyse the data ? You should and in particular to those kids who are Hispanic and African american.So 0.008% of children have been hospitalized. Interesting. And you didn't answer the question.
You said you were ready to take questions but you didn't say anything about answering them. Well done.Yes but did you analyse the data ? You should and in particular to those kids who are Hispanic and African american.
People have a tendency to “cherry-pick” arguments or claims that align with their system of beliefs while ignoring information that counters their position, even if it is consensus information.
We should all be cognizant of our biases, fears, desires, and ideologies. They fundamentally shape us. However, we should not let them override the fundamentals of sound science analysis and data assessment. Stay safe. Wear a mask.
You said you were ready to take questions but you didn't say anything about answering them. Well done.
That's still not an answer.Do you think that you tend to have a confirmation bias about the covid ? Do you go searching for information that supports your views ? Maybe you need some balance.
I recommend the podcast by Dr Norman Swan.
He's a smart guy and explains all things about the covid in layman's terms.
