So far this year, at least nine children have been hospitalized and 90 cases of Covid-19 have been diagnosed, according to Paul Gallardo, director of the Hospital del Nino (Children's Hospital).

He added that throughout the entire pandemic, 1,076 children have been hospitalized.

On Thursday, January 13, the vaccination day for children between 5 and 11 years of age without pathology began in circuits 8-7 and 8-8 in the capital.

Dr. Gallardo urged that children be vaccinated to reduce transmission, which is what is complicating the situation.
