COVID-19 appears less severe in children | Science Daily

The Pediatric Infectious Disease Journal has been studying the effects of the coronavirus on the world’s population. Similar and previous coronaviruses that have caused similar respiratory symptoms share the trait that children do not seem to be nearly as affected. While children are still just as likely to contract the virus compared to adults, they are more likely to have reduced symptoms and recover quicker. The main concern for anyone, adults and children alike, should be underlying health issues or a weakened immune system. Currently, children are recovering from the virus in an average of one to two weeks.
