The New York Times published a massive correction Thursday after the liberal newspaper seriously misreported the number of COVID hospitalizations among children in the United States of more than 800,000.
A report titled “A New Vaccine Strategy for Children: One Dose, So Far” by science and health journalist Apoorva Mandavilli was strewn with errors before major changes were made to the story. The Times initially reported that “nearly 900,000 children have been hospitalized” with COVID since the start of the pandemic, when the evidence for the now corrected version is that “more than 63,000 children have been hospitalized with Covid-19 d ‘August 2020 to October 2021. »
The document also botched actions taken by regulators in Sweden and Denmark and even messed up the schedule for a critical FDA meeting.
“An earlier version of this article incorrectly described the actions taken by regulators in Sweden and Denmark. They stopped using the Moderna vaccine in children; they haven’t started offering single doses. The article also inaccurate the number of Covid hospitalizations among American children. It is over 63,000 from August 2020 to October 2021, not 900,000 since the start of the pandemic. Additionally, the article inaccurate the timing of an FDA meeting on the clearance of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine for children. It’s later this month, not next week, ”says the long correction in its entirety.
