After two months of steady declines, COVID-19 cases among children have gone up for the second week in a row.

According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, more than 64,000 new child COVID-19 cases were identified through testing last week.

However, children are still considered less likely to develop severe symptoms of COVID-19 or to die from the virus.
