Not a single healthy child aged between the ages of 5 and 18 has died from COVID-19 in the first 15 months of the pandemic, a study by German scientists has found.
“Overall, the SARS-CoV-2-associated burden of a severe disease course or death in children and adolescents is low,” the scientists stated in a new report.
“This seems particularly the case for 5-11-year-old children without comorbidities.”
While the virus has yet to claim the lives of any healthy children between the ages of 5 and 18, only six children and adolescents have died in that age range due to severe preexisting conditions.
The reported frequency of a child requiring intensive hospital care for COVID-19 was also 1 in 50,000.
A total of eight infants and toddlers died between March 2020 and May 2021.
The number includes five with preexisting conditions, making a total of 14 Germans under the age of 18 who died from COVID during that 15 month time period.
The figures are similar to those recorded in the UK, where only six healthy children out of 12 million died of COVID-19.
“Given the known risks of vaccine-induced myocarditis in young men, the fact that Pfizer tested its mRNA vaccines on barely 3,000 children 5-11 and followed most of them for only weeks after the second dose, the German data again raises the question of how health authorities can possibly justify encouraging children or teenagers to be vaccinated,” writes Alex Berenson.
“If you let your healthy child or teenager receive the mRNA Covid vaccine, you are insane,” he adds.
Despite the results of the study, Germany is likely to offer children under the age of 12 a vaccine in the first quarter of 2022.
This will likely end up being compulsory as the country embarks on a draconian plan to make the vaccine mandatory for adults by February next year.
