Of all current Covid-19 cases in Wayne County, children make up 20% of them.
1 out of every 5 positive cases are children, which is new.
Many are showing concern as the school year comes closer and the spread among children continues to grow.
Wayne County Public Health, Diane Devlin, expressed concern at the high amount of positive cases among children, saying they are as young as three.
Wayne County officials believe the spike among children is likely due to their inability to become vaccinated.
