CDC Director Rochelle Walensky contradicted Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor’s incorrect claim that there are 100,000 pediatric COVID hospitalizations on Sunday.
Justice Sotomayor, a liberal Associate Justice appointed by former president Obama, exaggerated the number of severe COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations among children as she attempted to convince conservative Supreme Court justices that President Joe Biden’s vaccine mandate for businesses should be enforced.
‘We have over 100,000 children, which we’ve never had before, in serious condition, and many on ventilators,’ Sotomayor said on Friday.
‘The number is not 100,000. It’s roughly 3500 in hospitals now?’ asked host Bret Baier.
‘Yes. In fact, what I will say is, while pediatric hospitalizations are rising, they’re still about 15 fold less than hospitalizations of our older age or age demographic,’ Walinsky answered.
