According to the CDC, delta variability in children did not increase the severity of the disease.
According to the first data released Friday by U.S. health officials, the delta variant does not cause severe cases of Govt-19 in children and adolescents compared to other types.
Concerns about the effects of delta variation on young people have been growing in the country for weeks, with the number of children being hospitalized increasing.
10% of the population and 14 states were educated
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the country’s leading central public health agency, surveyed data on hospital-admitted patients to Covit-19 in 99 districts in 14 states, covering approximately 10% of the U.S. population.
In particular, the company compared the period from early March to mid-June to mid-June and the end of July when the delta variant dominated the United States. Between these two periods, the rate of hospitalization among children and adolescents aged 0 to 17 years has effectively increased fivefold.
Most “The proportion of children and adolescents hospitalized for acute illnessFor example, admission to intensive care,This was before and during the period when Delta was dominant.
Moreover, this work shows that vaccines still protect adolescents against delta: the hospital rate for vaccinated adolescents was ten times higher than for those not vaccinated during Delta’s dominance.
“Intensity does not increase”
In the United States, adolescents can receive their Pfizer vaccine from the age of 12. However, the CDC noted that the number of children with severe cases of the disease was small from mid-June to the end of July, which limits the relevance of the comparisons. They insist that the data should be constantly monitored in the future.
In addition, a second study released on Friday said the adult vaccine protects children from contamination. It examined emergency room visits and the number of hospitals across the country in August. In states where overall population immunization coverage is low, the number of emergency room visits for children and adolescents is three times higher than in states with high immunity. And the number of people admitted to the hospital is almost 4 times higher.
⁇More and more children are catching Govt-19 as the disease spreads“The director of the CDC, Rochelle Walenski, announced on Thursday that by triggering these two studies, they are proving one-sided.The vaccine works“, On the other hand it”The severity of the disease did not increase in children.
