This year's strain has been especially hard on kids with 11 dying this week alone - for a total this season of 136.Globally, there have been 110,200 positive COVID-19 cases in 108 countries with 3,800 deaths. According to the CDC, most who contract the virus will show little to no symptoms. Most of the deaths are in patients with underlying medical conditions.
