A CNN report appearing on 11 August is headlined “Myth that kids can’t get badly ill from Covid is further debunked.”
Note the phrasing: “further debunked.” As if it had already been debunked; as if the notion that kids can’t get seriously ill from COVID had already been exposed as a myth.
If that is, indeed, a “myth,” it’s certainly contrary to the hard data and scientific proof the Trends Journal has been reporting for some time, as in the following articles:

And that’s just a small sampling. 
Several of those TJ articles cite CDC figures indicating that 99.997 percent of 1-to-20-year-olds recover from the virus. But those figures were from before the emergence of the Delta variant, which we are now being told is “a game changer,” because it is supposedly more contagious, more easily transmissible from person to person. 
The CDC says that the Delta variant is “as contagious as chicken pox.” It now accounts, the agency tells us, for some 93 percent of U.S. COVID cases, up from 3 percent two months ago. 
And the number of cases in children has, CNN tells us, doubled in the two weeks ending on 5 August, according to the American Academy of Pediatrics. Also increased is the number of children hospitalized; we’re not told the age range of those “children,” although CNN does report, anecdotally, that more than half of the children recently admitted to the Children’s Hospital of New Orleans have been under 2 yrs. old.
While we’re told that almost half of all children (again, no age range given) hospitalized with COVID-19 between March 2020 and June 2021 had no known underlying conditions, we’re not told of any increase in deaths of children from COVID-19, or whether that over-99-percent rate of recovery has changed. 
CNN says that at least 542 U.S. children have died from COVID-19 (out of how many infected or hospitalized?), followed by a quote from CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky (see 10 August’s “LIAR WALENSKY? CDC FRAUDSTER”) that, “While children are far less likely to die from COVID-19 than adults, the deaths are still significant.” 
TRENDPOST: 542 people between the ages of 1 to 17 have reportedly died of the virus out of a population of 75 million in that age bracket. That means the death rate equals next to nothing… or 0.000723 percent or 1 death for every 138,377 members of that population. 
Yet, the Presstitutes and politicians keep spreading fear and hysteria and the moron and imbeciles—from government, businesses, schools and institutions—are forcing young people who are not dying from the illness to get a drug lords vaccination,  to socially distance and e-mask-u-late themselves by covering their faces with mostly ineffective masks. 
CNN, “Most Trusted Name in News”?

Basically, the CNN report, with its assumptions, generalizations and selective facts (often without perspective, and often anecdotal over statistical), seems to advocate vaccinations being expanded to children currently considered too young (those under 12) and mask-wearing for children over 2. It justifies those positions by invoking the need to keep children (who may have only mild symptoms or be asymptomatic and have a recovery rate from the virus of 99.997 percent) from transmitting the virus to adults, such as their relatives or teachers. 
And then, to bolster its premise, CNN invokes the specter of long-term, residual effects, chief among them MIS-C (Multi-system Inflammatory Syndrome in Children). Once again favoring anecdotes over statistics, CNN tells us that “in some cases” children with mild or asymptomatic COVID-19 have later developed MIS-C. 
The real statistics, from the CDC but not included in CNN’s report, indicate that, of 4404 MIS-C patients (since mid-May 2020), there have been a total of 37 deaths. 
And here’s what the CDC, on its own website, tells the public (also not included in the CNN report):
What we don’t know about MIS-C
CDC is still learning about MIS-C and how it affects children, so we don’t know why some children have gotten sick with MIS-C and others have not. We also do not know if children with certain health conditions are more likely to get MIS-C. These are among the many questions CDC is working to try to understand. All CDC recommendations are based on the best data and science available at the time, and we will update them as we learn more.
While we know that what the CDC says today may be entirely reversed by what the CDC says tomorrow, we still find the CDC more reliable and credible than CNN.
TRENDPOST: At the Trends Journal we do all we can to give the truth in trends by providing hard facts and scientific data and not skewing articles to support our findings, analysis and forecasts.  
Yet, be it the Korean War, the Vietnam War, the Afghan War, the Iraq War… or the COVID War, the majority of the population swallows the lies and propaganda from the mainstream media. Please do what you can to spread the “Trends Journal” word. The more subscribers we have the more we can do. And our mission is to “Think for Yourself”. When more do, we believe we can then march as a society on the path to Freedom, Peace and Justice.
