Another Summer Wave

Pediatric Cases on the Rise

  • Via American Academy of Pediatrics: “Recent analysis of the data shows the number of children under age 18 with confirmed COVID-19 at hospital admission increased nearly five-fold from 237 new admissions the week ending June 17 to 1,175 in the week ending Sept. 9.”
  • “June had the lowest level of pediatric COVID-19 hospital admissions since data collection began in 2020.”

Variants Fueling the Latest Wave

  • The main variants driving cases are EG.5 and FL.1.5.1, both XBB variant descendants that share a mutation known as F456L, which appears to be helping them spread more than other virus siblings.
