(Reuters) – Adrian James, an Illinois child who was attached to a ventilator at a hospital a few days ago because he fought a fatal case of Covid-1 of, is at home, his mother said Tuesday.
“So, so, very happy,” Tiffany Jackson said in a text message, sharing pictures of Adrian sitting in bed and breathing for more than a week and eating fries after eating with a tube.
The following month, three-year-old Adrian was taken to Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital in St. Louis, miles away from Mount Vernon, Illinois.
The Covid-1 preventive vaccine for children under 12 years of age has not yet been approved in the United States.
Jackson called on those who could be vaccinated to wear masks and maintain physical distance, as well as to protect others.
She said her doctor did not recommend the vaccine for her because her doctors said the flu was related to the vaccine. Adrian’s father had one of two vaccine doses and planned to get the other.
Adrian is one of more than 860,000 children under the age of four in the United States since the epidemic began, according to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). There have been more than 20,000 cases involving children under the age of four since Adrian became ill, CDC data show.
According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, still, less than 1% of cases reported by Covid-1 are hospitalized, and 2.5% of all hospital-related Covid-19 children are children.
