The question is, can children spread coronavirus? the answer is maybe “yes” or “not”. But recent research found that children can carry coronavirus as a huge number. But it is not sure that they can spread it.
Scientists are surprised at the role of children in Coronavirus infections. A new study has found that children can carry coronavirus in their noses for up to three weeks. The survey was conducted in South Korea. Previous studies have shown that most children have mild symptoms of the virus. Again, there may be no symptoms. However, the results of this study will shed light on the unresolved question of how children spread the virus among others.
The study highlights the importance of social distance and the continued role of health care as children return to school.
Russell Weiner, president of the Royal College of Pediatrics and Child Health, said there are three separate but related questions between children and Covid-19. That is, whether children will be infected with the virus, how much infection will occur, and whether they will spread the virus to others.
We know for sure that viral infections can occur in children. Antibody blood tests have shown that they are less likely to be infected with the virus than older people. The rate of viral infection is lower in people under 12 years of age.Russell Weiner, President of the Royal College of Pediatrics and Child Health
“We know for sure that the virus can infect children,” Weiner said. Antibody blood tests have shown that they are less likely to be infected with the virus than older people. The rate of viral infection is lower in people under 12 years of age. Scientists are confident that even children are infected, they are less likely to get sick than adults. Many do not have any symptoms. The results of a UK study released on Friday confirmed that. Although the first two questions were answered, there was very little information about the third question, whether the virus was transmitted through children. Researchers in South Korea have tried to find an answer to that question.
The study was conducted on 91 children in South Korea. This includes children with mild symptoms or no symptoms at all. In their case, the virus was found to be present even three weeks after the infection. Researchers say they are able to spread the virus by proving the presence of a recognizable virus in the nose. The study revealed new evidence of coronavirus transmission from children.
There are some weaknesses in this study. Having a baby’s nose virus does not mean that they will spread it at the same rate as adults.
“Children can carry the virus,” said Roberta Dibayasi, head of the children’s department at Children’s National Hospital in Washington, DC. So it is unreasonable to think that they will not spread it.
Professor Weiner says keeping the school closed is not neutral, but has its own risks. It harms the child’s development, education, and mental health. However, accurately determining how much risk the child carries is an open question. It is important to know the answer to this question to prevent the spread of the virus in the future.
