It is published in The journal Nature Medicine on March 13, Chinese researchers observed that severe symptoms of COVID-19 were less common among children than in adults.

Children who had been infected in China mostly either displayed mild symptoms or no symptoms at all, and only one of them died.

Corona update

The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has also said that even though all children won’t develop severe symptoms as adults, they will be affected by the virus and potentially spread it to others.

The agency also admitted that at present, it knows very little about the full extent to which COVID-19 affects children in general.

Hello everyone as we all know corona is spreading worldwide on large scale but in all that when we listen about Total cases, total death, and other demographic data we think that children’s ratio is not so high in positive cases.

The proper reason is unknown that why children’s are not affected by covid virus but lots of researches are going on children’s symptoms and death rate due to corona.

Can children’s Move around without safety ?

No this is totally wrong practice and don’t allow the parents and children’s to move anywhere without mask or social distance otherwise the children may be affected and infected with covid-19 virus.

Here we can think that immunization is give immunity to children’s given with birth to 9 month but this is just a guess what is the proper reason that we can’t know.

Another preprint  research published by the official journal of the American Academy of Pediatrics, researchers reported that around 90% of child-patients in China were asymptomatic or had mild to moderate symptoms.

What are coronavirus symptoms seen in children?

COVID-19 symptoms are milder in children than in adults, and some infected children may not have any signs of being sick at all.

Coronavirus symptoms for children and adults include:

  • Cough
  • Fever or chills
  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
  • Muscle or body aches
  • Sore throat
  • New loss of taste or smell
  • Diarrhea
  • Headache
  • New fatigue
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Congestion or runny nose

Children’s can spread the coronavirus?

Yes, children infected with the coronavirus can transmit it to other kids and adults.

Whether they spread the illness more or less than adults is not yet clear. Although for the most part, children’s COVID-19 symptoms are milder than those of older people.

Some evidence shows that infected kids carry at least as much of the virus in their mouths and noses as adults.

Having more of the coronavirus in your body doesn’t necessarily mean you are more contagious, but researchers are looking at the role of children in coronavirus transmission, especially as it affects reopening schools.

so we can’t consider that a children are completely safe for their self or for other adult also but the chances are less in children’s as compare to adults’.

On which emergency condition we admit the child in hospital.

  • Difficulty breathing or catching his or her breath
  • Inability to keep down any liquids
  • New confusion or inability to awaken
  • Bluish lips

What you can do to protect your child ?

Research says that the best way to prevent children from becoming sick with COVID-19 is to Avoid exposing your child from outer environment.

Maintain physical distancing.

The more people your kids come in contact with, and the longer the duration of that contact, the higher the risk of infection with the coronavirus.

  • Check your kids’ day care and schools (if they are open) to ensure physical distancing measures are in place.
  • Children should stay at least 6 feet from others outside of their household.
  • Ensure that children limit close contact with children and adults who are vulnerable, such as those with health conditions.
  • Limit in-person play with other children, and be sure the children wear masks properly.
  • Wear a mask. 
  • Wash hands. 
  • Hand hygiene

Also very important things to keep in mind that if your child have any heart disease, Respiratory disease then keep more attention on your child to save from corona or any other disease condition like fever, malaria, flu and all.

Some data are taken from e research so consider this for education purpose only, government sites are give you proper research information.
