The number of children diagnosed in the United States has increased sharply, and many schools have suspended face-to-face classes

Affected by the Omicron variant of the new coronary pneumonia, the number of confirmed cases in the United States has surged. The number of children diagnosed with the disease has increased across the United States, including a three-fold increase in the number of children admitted to the hospital due to confirmed cases in New York State. Schools in some parts of the United States have suspended face-to-face teaching and changed to online teaching. Some school leaders in the United States said that it was like the situation repeated last year.

The number of hospital admissions of children diagnosed in the state has hospital in three weeks as new cases of the Omicron variant surge in New York City and elsewhere, the New York State Department of Health said on Friday. About half of them are children under the age of five who are not yet eligible for the vaccine, and none of the five to 11-year-olds admitted to hospital last week were also unvaccinated.

It is reported that 16% of children aged 5 to 11 and 71% of young people aged 12 to 17 in New York state have been vaccinated. California epidemiologist Erica Pan urged parents to arrange vaccinations for their children as soon as possible.

In response to the increasing number of confirmed cases among schoolchildren, officials in Maryland, New Mexico, New York and New Jersey have ordered that online teaching should be resumed after the winter vacation. About 300 schools have been closed. Among them, the New York suburb of Mount Vernon (Mount Vernon) plans to maintain online classes until January 18 next year. District Superintendent Kenneth Hamilton said that while he was reluctant to close campuses, he understood the risks of continuing in-person classes.

More than 136,000 students in Maryland switched to an online learning model last week, and school district chief executive Monica Goldson said in-person classes and other activities will need to be kept safe for their own healthy school community.

In New Jersey, where classes will be taught online for the first two weeks of school next year, Superintendent Eileen Shafer pointed to a surge in cases in the northeastern part of the state, which is expected to remain at the end of the holidays.
