How COVID-19 Affects Children

“My suspicion is that they’re actually catching it, but they’re dealing with it so well. they’re having such a mild reaction, that it looks as though they’ve got only a mild cold or no symptoms at all.”

The Australian Academy of Science has published a new fact-checked video where Professor Robert Booy from the University of Sydney fields questions on the coronavirus, including how it affects children.

Professor Booy answers the following questions:

  • Why are few children contracting COVID-19?
  • Do children have better immunity that adults?
  • Can children be hosts and spread the virus?
  • Can babies contract COVID-19?
  • Why is their a 14 day quarantine period?
  • Can COVID-19 be contracted by animals?
