Most children affected with Covid-19 do not show symptoms, research says

Children infected with the corona virus often do not show any symptoms of the disease.
This was revealed in a medical study conducted in the United States.

An estimated one-third of people with Covid do not have symptoms of the disease.

The  Yale School of Medical Health conducted a systematic analysis of data from more than 350 research reports published by April 2021. The study found that asymptomatic disease is more common in children than in older people or people who already have the disease.

The research team estimates that 46.7% of children do not have any symptoms.

The researchers said the findings were even more worrying because children lived in a confined space with children much older than themselves in educational institutions.

He said that if the school administration was limited to monitoring the symptoms, the risk of Covid-19 super spreader events could also increase in children without symptoms.

“Patients without symptoms can also transmit the virus to others, which is why the use of face masks is so important, especially when educational institutions are open,” he said.

The results of the study were published in the medical journal PANS.

The findings come as a study conducted in the US in early August 2021 found that children infected with the Covid-19 could transmit the virus to other people in their home.

A study published in the medical journal New England Journal of Medicine examined the spread of coronavirus in the homes of children attending a sleepaway camp in the US state of Georgia last summer.

The investigation found that the children participating in the camp passed the code to their families on their return home.

The researchers said that research has shown that corona can spread easily to family members from school-age children and adults may have to be hospitalized due to the disease.

He said that in the houses where the disease was transmitted from children to people, half of the family members fell victim to the disease.

The researchers said that the risk of spreading the virus to children could be reduced by social distance and the use of face masks.
