As the world waits with bated breath for a vaccine to eradicate the highly infectious disease, scientific community and research groups are working day and night to learn more about the novel contagion and curb its spread. Several case studies and researches hint to the theory that while young children are not immune to the novel coronavirus, they rarely develop severe symtomps or complications from the disease.
As per the World Health Organization, the direct impact of COVID-19 on child mortality seems to be “very limited” as per the available evidence. Emerging reports are also suggesting that kids may be less vulnerable to coronavirus when compared with adults, but those who get infected carry a higher viral load when compared to the adults. According to a recent US study, children might actually be silent spreaders of the highly contagious infection.
