Studies show a connection: Poorer children are more likely to be infected with Corona

How much money a family has has an impact on the children's risk of corona infection. According to the Federal Ministry of Health, this is the result of various studies.

The socioeconomic status of children and their families has an impact on their corona infection risk. According to the Federal Ministry of Health, this is the result of various studies. The left-wing faction had made a corresponding request to the federal government, and the editorial network Germany (RND) reported on their answer.

The probability of a corona infection in children and employees of schools and daycare centers is "generally greater in facilities with a higher proportion of children from socio-economically disadvantaged households," the ministry said. In addition, these facilities are “more often affected by infection-related closures and thus also by staff shortages”.

The child and youth policy spokeswoman for the left-wing faction in the Bundestag, Heidi Reichinnek, criticized the lack of targeted support for children and young people from socially disadvantaged families. "The federal government recognizes a clear connection between poverty and the rate of infection and the severity of the courses. At the same time, however, nothing is being done to support families separately," she told RND.

According to information from the Ministry of Health, according to official data from the Robert Koch Institute, 7,234,503 children and adolescents aged up to 18 years have been infected with the corona virus in Germany since the beginning of the corona pandemic. Accordingly, the highest infection rate is in ten to 14-year-olds, and the fewest registered cases are in small children up to four years of age.
