Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Theblaze.com: “New York Times issues correction after egregiously exaggerating coronavirus child hospitalizations”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

The New York Times issued a lengthy correction after numerous mistakes in an article about coronvirus vaccinations for children, including the egregious exaggeration of coronavirus hospitalizations among U.S. children.

The article by Apoorva Mandavilli documented how the U.S. is forging ahead on full vaccination for children while other countries are experimenting with just one shot after weighing the risks.

In addition to wildly overestimating child hospitalizations, the article misreported how Sweden and Denmark were dealing with child vaccinations, and misreported on the timing of a meeting of health officials about child vaccines.

Mandavilli previously made headlines when she opined in a tweet that the lab leak theory for the origin of the coronavirus had "racist roots." She later deleted the tweet after online backlash noting that many experts had affirmed the possibility of a laboratory origin of the pandemic.
