In Michigan, a record-breaking number of children have been hospitalized with Covid


April 26, 2021

DETROIT - Among the many alarming consequences of Michigan's recent Covid-19 surge is one that has doctors particularly concerned: a record-breaking spike in child hospitalizations.

Data from the Michigan Health & Hospital Association shows that the number of children hospitalized with severe Covid-19 symptoms hit a high of 70 this week - twice as many as were hospitalized during the worst days of the wave that swept the state in November.

The numbers have public officials across the country watching Michigan, raising questions about why the B.1.1.7, or U.K., coronavirus variant behind the latest wave here is leading to more cases of children who are seriously ill.
