Child Hospitalization Increases with the Omicron Variant

According to data from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Covid-19 hospitalisation rates among Child are on the rise in the United States, with an average of 4.3 children under the age of 5 per 100,000 hospitalised with an infection as of the week ending January 1, up from 2.6 children the previous week. This is a 48 percent increase from the week ending December 4, and the most significant increase in hospitalisation rates for this age group during the pandemic.

It is crucial that we surround our youngest Child, who are not yet eligible for vaccination, with individuals who are vaccinated in order to provide them with protection. According to data from the CDC and the US Department of Health and Human Services, new hospital admissions for Child under the age of 18 with confirmed Covid-19 are already at an all-time high, with an average of 797 every day. It’s the highest it’s ever been, with a spike of 80% over the previous week.

According to the most recent data from the CDC, about 82,000 Child had been hospitalised with Covid-19 during the outbreak. The CDC updated its guidance for Covid-19 prevention in K-12 schools on Thursday, aligning it with its most recent quarantine and isolation recommendations. Students, instructors, and staff who have Covid-19 should stay at home for at least five days and separate themselves from others, according to the guidelines.

Child who have been exposed to the coronavirus but have not been fully vaccinated should be in isolation for at least five days after having had close contact with someone who has Covid-19, according to the guidelines. Adults who have not been vaccinated against Covid-19 or have not had a booster vaccination should also follow this advice.
