Are Kids at Risk of the Coronavirus Delta Variant?

On September 23. 2021, Manila Times republished an article originally posted in the Associated Press. The article states that there is no solid indication that the coronavirus delta variant makes children and teens sicker than earlier versions of the virus.

According to the report, in the U.S., the hospitalization rate for Covid-19 was less than 2 per 100,000 children in late August and early September – similar to the peak last winter. The article adds that the portion of kids hospitalized with malignant illness hasn’t changed significantly. This data is from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Also, the report said that American Academy of Pediatrics and Children’s Hospital Association data shows weekly infection rates among U.S. children continue to increase and have now surpassed the spike in wintertime. Although the figures show that more children are getting infections, there is no indication that they become sicker. Most infected kids have mild infections or no symptoms and do not need to be hospitalized.

Editor’s Note: This report confirms that children are still the least affected by COVID-19, even with the arrival of the Delta variant which has been touted as “dangerous” and “deadly” [see Mainstream media spinning news about Delta cases to sell vaccines to unvaccinated].

From the very beginning of this “pandemic,” there has been a consensus that COVID poses no risk to children [See CDC updates planning scenarios, shows IFR lower than flu]. People panicking due to greater “infection” among children is a sign that they have been so reliant on the fear-mongering media. Ask any student who has studied even basic immunology, and they will tell you that this is a good thing. When children get infected, and the “infection” does not lead to severe disease, it means that the virus is now on its endemic phase, and the population is reaching natural herd immunity [Also read New study shows the path towards endemic COVID].
