    This data focuses on "childcare facilities." As schools began opening over the past couple of weeks, the numbers are growing. The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) reported that almost 73,000 children have tested positive in just the last 2 weeks (from Aug. 27 - Sept. 10) since schools began reopening. 73,000 in 2 weeks. Overall, over a half million (550,000) children have tested positive in the U.S. Thirty-eight (38) states have reported at least one death of a child due to COVID through 9/10/20.
