Corona infection is also reaching children. However, its infectivity rate is quite low. Recently, a survey was conducted on 13,000 children in Spain, Italy, Switzerland. It received an average of 0.8 percent infection. This included children up to ten years of age.
2% of the total corona patients admitted to hospitals in the US are under 18 years of age. The death toll is 0.1 percent.
Why corona is serious in some children
A study in Chicago, USA, found that children admitted to the hospital by March-July had either a prior problem or an infection other than corona.
Why less infection
Experts say that children have a cold early. With this, T-cells already fighting flu-like infections are already present in their body. Therefore the risk of infection is less.
How much danger from infected mother
The study at New York Presbyterian Hospital found that breast-feeding of an infected mother increases the child’s risk of developing coronas. The study included 101 children. The study is published in JAMA Pediatrics.
