CDC claims COVID-19 kills 'healthy young children' as doctors push back on vaccinating kids

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention now claims that "healthy young children" can die from COVID-19. Marty Makary wants to see the evidence.

"In reviewing the medical literature and news reports, and in talking to pediatricians across the country, I am not aware of a single healthy child in the U.S. who has died of COVID-19 to date," the Johns Hopkins University professor of medicine and public health said Thursday.

Archived versions of the CDC's web page comparing COVID-19 and seasonal influenza show that it revised the "differences" in the section "People at High-Risk for Severe Illness" sometime between May 31 and June 8.

"The risk of complications for healthy children is higher for flu compared to COVID-19," the earlier version says. "However, infants and children with underlying medical conditions are at increased risk for both flu and COVID-19."

The new version flips the emphasis as well as adding a new claim. "Overall, COVID-19 seems to cause more serious illnesses in some people," it begins.
