Children account for about 3-4 per cent of hospital admissions, in both India and the rest of the world

She said children who test positive for COVID-19 have symptoms such as fever, abdominal pain, loose motions and rashes and are being given the same treatment as adults. Though the mortality rate for children is significantly lower than most adults.
