As coronavirus cases climb worryingly across the United States, a recent study shows that the number of children contracting the virus “steadily increased” in July

In the last week alone, according to the report from the American Academy of Pediatrics and the Children’s Hospital Association, nearly 72,000 cases were reported in children, roughly 19% of the total number of new cases nationwide.
