The CDC has removed tens of thousands of deaths linked to COVID-19, including nearly a quarter of deaths it had listed in those under 18 years old
The health agency quietly made the change on its data tracker website on March 15.
Before the change, the CDC listed 1,755 children as dying from COVID-19 along with approximately 851,000 others.
The update saw the CDC cut 416 deaths among children and over 71,000 elsewhere, arriving at a total of just under 780,000.
“Data on deaths were adjusted after resolving a coding logic error. This resulted in decreased death counts across all demographic categories,” the CDC says on the site.
