Welcome to

The COVKID Project

     The purpose of the Coronavirus in Kids (COVKID) Tracking and Education Project is to monitor and compile epidemiologic surveillance data on COVID-19 in children and teens.

     We aim to present timely data in formats that are accessible and useful for clinicians, public health practitioners, policymakers, elected officials, and journalists.

     Our blog, The COVKID Compass, brings you easy-to-understand, unbiased, and up-to-date scientific explanations of all aspects of the COVID-19 pandemic in children and teenagers.

     We welcome your feedback, data links and leads, and constructive criticism  - email us at covkid.project@wiise-usa.org
