In this retrospective single-institution cohort study of 113 hospitalized pediatric patients with respiratory coronavirus disease 2019, those admitted to the intensive care unit or requiring mechanical ventilation had significantly higher immature platelet fractions than those who did not require intensive care unit–level care or ventilation. Immature platelet fraction may be an accessible biomarker for disease severity in pediatric respiratory coronavirus disease 2019.
