378 Kids Have Died from COVID: Correction to Yesterday's Podcast
I misspoke in yesterday’s podcast when saying there’s been, “126 cumulative COVID-19 deaths in children.”
There’s actually been 378 cumulative deaths in children, as of August 12, 2021 in the USA. Very sorry about that.
This brings the case death rate down to 0.01%. (And 0% in some states as not every state has recorded a C*19 death in a child yet.)
The estimated number of children under the age of 19 in the USA is estimated to be around ~ 75,000,000.
Interestingly, during this same time period over 540,918 children have died from other causes. (As of August 12th, 2021.)
So COVID-19 represents 0.07% of all childhood deaths.
Sorry for the confusion.
