Since COVID-19 arrived in the country, no Mexican has been exempt from contracting the virus, not even minors, who although at the beginning of the health contingency were the least affected by the disease, today, they are considered a vulnerable part of society.

According to the accumulated graph presented this Monday by the Comprehensive Protection System for the Rights of Girls, Boys and Adolescents ( SIPINNA ), in Mexico, there have been 59,127 confirmed cases and 605 deaths due to COVID-19 in children under the age of 18 years old, throughout the pandemic.
