While the incidence of Covid-19 in kids is quite low compared to adults.
According to the research released on Monday in the CDC’s Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report, the CDC found a higher prevalence of COVID-19 in males across every pediatric age group — including infants. Fifty-seven percent of the more than 2,572 pediatric cases of COVID-19 studied (out of 149,750 cases overall) were found in males, ranging in age from newborns to 18.
Most of the children reported symptoms of cough or fever, but only a small fraction (five percent) were hospitalized.
TAKEAWAY: Watch for symptoms like lack of appetite, coughing, fever, lack of sense of smell or taste and call your doctor immediately.
