As per the studies until now, COVID can affect kids much differently as compared to adults. They are likely to carry high risks of COVID. Now, a new study shows that kids, the one diagnosed with COVID, can spread the virus over three weeks.
The study says, "This highlights the concept that infected children may be more likely to go unnoticed either with or without symptoms and continue with their usual activities, which may contribute to viral circulation within their community. This suggests that even mild and moderately affected children remain symptomatic for long periods of time."
