More children are being hospitalized for COVID-19.

Researchers found over 5,300 children were hospitalized due to COVID-19 between the spring and late fall.

In mid-May, the average hospitalization rate was two per 100,000 children. However, that increased to 17 by mid-November.

The scientists say, as discussions around in-person learning continue, the hospitalization growth "may offer reasons for concern".
