Child COVID Hospitalizations Overreported By 800,000+ By Mainstream Outlet

On Thursday, the New York Times issued a correction stating that they had seriously misreported the number of children hospitalized from the coronavirus throughout the pandemic by over 800,000 cases. They had initially reported that 900,000 children had been hospitalized with the virus when the actual number was closer to 63,000.

“A New Vaccine Strategy for Children: Just One Dose, for Now” first reported that about “900,000 children have been hospitalized” with the virus since the start of the pandemic in early 2020. However, the article has since been corrected to say that “more than 63,000 children were hospitalized with COVID-19 from August 2020 to October 2021.” – New York Times
