Children with coronavirus are not as contagious as adults
An advisory group of scientists to the British government concluded that there was evidence that the children had milder symptoms, but “the evidence for susceptibility and transmission is not yet clear and it is recommended that additional information be considered.”
However, the balance of evidence suggests that both susceptibility and infectivity in children may be lower than in adults.
In reports submitted to the government by the end of April, experts write that there are already serological tests with children and some show the rate of infection.
Restrictive measures are already being lifted in many countries over the new coronavirus pandemic, and authorities are trying to determine when it is safe to resume training. According to scientists, there must first be reliable testing and tracking systems.
