Gov. Phil Murphy announced that COVID has hospitalized 13 kids -- two of them in the ICU -- and he dared critics to scoff at those stats by calling them "only": "When they say “only” — they are saying they’re perfectly willing to accept children landing in the ICU or dying from COVID." Murphy again urged parents to get their 12 to 17 year old vaccinated against COVID.
