How many children have had COVID-19? Answering your questions on the Idaho Matters Doctors Roundtable

This is a close view of a specimen, prepared for the CDC serologic test to identify the presence of SARS-CoV-2 antibodies, which is a sign of past infection with the virus that causes COVID-19.

According to a new report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, three out of every four kids in the U.S. have probably had the coronavirus. That same report also says that close to 60% of all Americans have had COVID-19.

Former CEO of St. Luke’s Health System, Dr. David Pate, joins Idaho Matters to talk more about these numbers and COVID-19 in Idaho.

As Senior Producer of our live daily talk show Idaho Matters, I’m able to indulge my love of storytelling and share all kinds of information (I was probably a Town Crier in a past life!). My career has allowed me to learn something new everyday and to share that knowledge with all my friends on the radio.
