The children make up a small fraction of the state’s hospitalized patients. according to state dataAs of Tuesday, 283 patients have been hospitalized with a confirmed Covid-19 infection, including 98 in the ICU and 42 on a ventilator.

In general, young people can become infected with Covid-19 and spread it to others, but are much less likely to suffer serious consequences from the disease. According to the US Centers for Disease Control and PreventionChildren under 18 account for 12.5% โ€‹โ€‹of US Covid-19 cases but only 0.1% of deaths, while people over 50 account for 95% of Covid-19 deaths.
The rise in hospitalizations is because Mississippi has the lowest vaccination rate in the U.S., with 44% of people ages 12 and older having received at least one vaccine dose, according to data from the CDC. Children under the age of 12 are not yet eligible for vaccination against Covid-19 in the US.
