MUSC sees highest admission of children with severe COVID-19 since start of pandemic

Officials with the Medical University of South Carolina say August and September saw the highest two-month total of children admitted due to COVID-19 since the start of the pandemic. “While it was true that, generally speaking, kids were less affected by COVID last year than adults, that’s no longer true. We’re seeing many more kids who are severely affected by COVID,” said Allison Eckard, M. D. , the head ofthe Division of Pediatric Infectious Diseases at MUSC.
