The latest from Josh on Children and COVID-19:
I recently created this infographic for some doctors who are part of the Urgency of Normal movement, to put the risk of Covid infection in kids into perspective.
This chart represents what many pediatricians, epidemiologists, and other researchers have known since mid 2020. But science publishing is slow (by design), and the way information disseminates is heavily influenced by algorithm enhancements in search engines and social media platforms. I don’t think it’s controversial to say that the majority of major media coverage of Covid in kids has been inaccurately skewed towards alarmism.
For the past 2 years, I’ve done my best to catalogue any medical or academic research I came across that I found to be helpful in understanding Covid and how Covid affects children. I have done my best to summarize what I consider to be the key points and key findings of the papers. I hope this can serve as a useful repository for accurate, trustworthy research on the this subject.
