The number of children hospitalized across the US with COVID-19 has hit a record high of just over 1,900 as hospitals in southern states were stretched to capacity fighting outbreaks caused by the highly transmissible Delta variant. The Delta variant, which is rapidly spreading among the mostly unvaccinated sector of the US population, has reportedly caused hospitalizations to spike in recent weeks, driving up the number of pediatric hospitalizations to 1,902 on Saturday, according to data from the US Department of Health and Human Services.
