Minorities Make Up Most Deaths Among Young People

Coronavirus pediatric fatalities mostly among minorities, those with underlying conditions, CDC says

Out of total deaths of under-21, 12 deaths have been of children under the age of 1, and almost half of the deaths were of children between the age of 18-20.

The report also showed just how unusual it is for children and young adults to die from coronavirus.

Between 42% and 51% of all school employees in the USA met the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's criteria for either having an increased risk or potentially increased risk for Covid-19 infection, researchers with the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality found.

Meanwhile, the U.S. still remains the worst affected country and has recorded more than 6.5 million cases of the virus, with 1,94,000 deaths reported so far, as per worldometer dashboard.

Overall, mortality among children and youths is far lower than adults: the CDC identified 392,000 cases in the time period, which was eight percent of the total figure, and only 0.08 percent of all deaths. 78% of the children who died were children of color: 45% were Hispanic, 29% were Black and 4% were non-Hispanic American Indian or Alaska Native. 75% of the children who died had an underlying condition which made them more vulnerable to complications from the coronavirus. Most were between 10 and 20 years old.

Boys fared worse than girls: males accounted for 63% of the deaths compared with 37% for females.

Even though children are reassuringly less likely to get severely ill and die, they can still get infected and transmit SARS-CoV-2 to others, according to numerous studies.

NEIGHMOND: And while most children have mild symptoms, some don't.

These racial and ethnic groups are also disproportionately represented among essential workers who were unable to work from home during the pandemic, putting them at higher risk of exposure to the virus, as well as the potential to pass it to family members, the authors wrote. "Two of three asymptomatic children likely transmitted SARS-CoV-2 to their parents and possibly to their teachers", the researchers from the Salt Lake County Health Department wrote in their report.

The majority of children dying from COVID-19 are children of color. It found that 22% of the children were asymptomatic.

"Make sure your child can be seen by a doctor or taken to the hospital", she says.

However, the study also stated that children are not immune to the novel coronavirus and a post-viral condition called multisystem inflammatory syndrome in children (MIS-C).
