On;y 478 children between the ages of 0 and 17 had a death involving COVID-19. Since 115 deaths in that age group involved both COVID-19 and Pneumonia, at most 363 of “all deaths involving COVID-19” were solely caused by COVID-19.

In 2019, 430,000 minors (<18 years old, died from abuse, neglect, and “childhood adversity.”
