A new Centers for Disease Control and Prevention report highlights a record number of children are now being hospitalised with common colds due to weakened immune systems.
The Daily Mail reports that the CDC found that a historically high number of inpatients under 18 years old were struggling with common viruses during August 2021, after lockdowns, masks and social distancing hit a peak.
The figures show the highest levels of children with respiratory illnesses ever recorded in summer. The levels were more consistent with December of previous years.
The data was compiled from hospitals in seven different states including Washington, Texas, New York and Ohio.
Commenting on the findings, Dr Scott Roberts, a medical director at Yale University stated that lockdowns impacted the ability of children to build up immunity to common illnesses.
“There are two implications to this,” the doctor said, explaining “First, the gap gives time for the viruses to mutate even further to cause more severe disease.”
“And second, whatever immunity was built up to those viruses’ it will have waned making the immune response now much less potent,” Roberts added.
The doctor also noted that children, including his own son are now getting “constant infections.”
The CDC data is consistent with research by scientists at Yale who warned that it is not normal to see children with combinations of seven common viruses, including adenovirus, rhinovirus, respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), human metapneumovirus, influenza and parainfluenza, as well as COVID-19.
As we previously highlighted, there has also been a global outbreak of hepatitis cases in children, with the media asserting the cause is “unknown.”
Biden administration officials have continuously pushed for children to keep wearing masks in schools, and there are still hordes of hypochondriacs forcing their children to do so, despite COVID posing virtually no risk to the health of children in normal circumstances.
Some even cite the rise in hospitalisations of children as a reason to bring mask mandates back:
Pediatric hospitalizations are surging. Cases of all respiratory viruses surging. #COVID is rising again too. It’s time we #BringBackMasks and use that hashtag #️⃣ going forward. #COVIDisAirborne #CovidIsNotOver pic.twitter.com/VR8yT7QmAY

As we have previously highlighted, lockdowns and masking in particular have had massively detrimental impacts upon children.
A study in Britain found that many children entering elementary school have severely underdeveloped verbal skills, with many are unable to even say their own name.
According to speech therapists, mask wearing has caused a 364% increase in patient referrals of babies and toddlers.

Another study revealed how mean IQ scores of young children born during the pandemic have tumbled by as much as 22 points while verbal, motor and cognitive performance have all suffered as a result of lockdown.
A study published in the Royal Society Open Science journal found that lockdowns in the UK caused around 60,000 children to suffer clinical depression.
Figures show that 400,000 British children were referred to mental health specialists last year for things like eating disorders and self-harm.
Education experts have asserted that forcing schoolchildren to wear face masks has caused long lasting psychological trauma.
An Ofsted report also warned of serious delays in learning caused by lockdown restrictions.
“Children turning two years old will have been surrounded by adults wearing masks for their whole lives and have therefore been unable to see lip movements or mouth shapes as regularly,” states the report.
Another study out of Germany which found that the reading ability of children has plummeted compared to pre-COVID times thanks to lockdown policies that led to the closure of schools.
