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?
