Wpływ COVID-19 na dzieci

A review of the roles of schools and daycare centers in the COVID-19 pandemic finds that children under the age of 10 are not a major source of the disease.

The impact of COVID-19 on children has been uncertain throughout the ongoing pandemic. While most relevant studies have found that children are less susceptible to the disease, others have suggested that they have a similar rate of infection to adults.

And although COVID-19 is generally a mild disease in children, there have been reports of a rare inflammatory syndrome occurring in children with COVID-19.

Uncertainty about the impact of the disease on children and about their ability to transmit the virus to others has caused confusion and led to concerns about the reopening of schools.

As the body of evidence grows, the National Collaborating Centre for Methods and Tools (NCCMT), in Ontario, Canada, have published a review to help clarify the roles that schools and daycare centers have in the transmission of COVID-19.
