Children and Coronavirus: Children are less affected by Corona – but much more infectious

A report from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention in the United States confirms – the Coronavirus is far less harmful to children. Despite this, the new report concerns the “silent” spread of the virus by children who often show no symptoms despite being infected – but spread it among the older population.

A new report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in the United States indicates that there are also children and young people under the age of 18, far fewer than the adults in the Coronavirus – and much less than their population. Also, their illness is much easier in many cases. The concern is the “quiet distribution” of the children’s corona, which threatens the older population.

Coronary morbidity data in the United States shows that only 1.7 percent of the 150,000 coronated cases in the United States are only 18-0. Their proportion in the population is ten times that, and children are generally much more susceptible to infectious diseases.

The number of 18-0 people who need hospitalization is also much lower compared to older adults, most of whom are in this group are infants one year old or less. The children who are infected also suffer from background illnesses that are typical of children including lung diseases such as asthma, as well as heart disease and immune problems.

Also, there are severe cases and complications in this age group, but they are relatively rare for older adults. The main concern is the “silent distribution” of the virus by the children. Children are not sick but they are contagious – and this hurts the adults of them and especially threatens the lives of the elderly.

Despite the public focus on the extraordinary cases of complications and death – this is the general medical picture and should be taken into consideration and taken into account.
