CDC Revises Data for Pediatric Deaths Caused by COVID-19

Objectivity 3.8 | Credibility 4.2 | Relevance 4.5

Data representing the number of pediatric deaths from COVID-19 was revised by the CDC on March 15, 2022.  A footnote on their COVID Data Tracker site states it was due to a “coding logic error.”  The number of pediatric deaths reported was reduced by nearly 24%.  The agency also lowered the number of total deaths from COVID-19 by approximately 70,000.
