Black and Hispanic children are impacted more severely by coronavirus, with higher case rates, hospitalizations and virus-related complications, according to research released this week. These findings mirror similar reports across the nation of adults in minority communities being hit harder by Covid-19.

(CNN)Black and Hispanic children are impacted more severely by coronavirus, with higher case rates, hospitalizations and virus-related complications, according to research released this week.

A report from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released Friday found that Black and Hispanic children are more likely to be hospitalized due to coronavirus than White children.

The report found Hispanic children were hospitalized for coronavirus at the highest rate, 16. 4 per 100,000 people, followed by Black children at 10. 5 per 100,000.

A study released this week out of Children's National Hospital in Washington, DC, found that coronavirus rates are similarly higher among Black and Hispanic children and those from lower socioeconomic backgrounds.

The study examined 1,000 patients tested at a Children's National Covid-19 testing site and found that just 7. 3% of White children tested positive for coronavirus, in contrast to 30% of Black children and 46. 4% of Hispanic children.
