Doctors Share Signs Of Covid-19 in Children

Schools are slowly starting to reopen, despite the threat of COVID-19. Officials have claimed that COVID-19 only has mild effects on children. However, the virus remains dangerous, no matter the age. Before sending your kids to school, here are the COVID-19 symptoms to watch out for.  

Cases of COVID-19 Among US Children

According to a CNN report, around 90 children have died of COVID-19 in only a few months. Dr. Sean O’Leary shared this data with CNN. He also said people shouldn’t think that COVID-19 was “completely benign” in kids.

Dr. O’Leary sits as vice-chair of the American Academy of Pediatrics Committee on Infectious Diseases.

The number of COVID-19 cases among US children has also surged by 90%. And in Florida alone, seven children have died, with three of them dying in July. 

COVID-19 Symptoms in Children

Children experience the same COVID-19 symptoms as adults. Other symptoms, according to CNN, are breathing difficulty, quickly spreading rashes, lack of energy, and trouble keeping awake. 

Dr. Daniel Cohen said parents should watch out if they notice their children “falling asleep all the time,” or “just exhausted.” Also, parents should watch closely if their kids don’t drink or eat.  Dr. Cohen practices medicine in New Rochelle, New York. 

What to Do If Your Kid has COVID-19

Even just a slight fever should push you to take your child to the doctor. They will know what’s wrong with your child.

While many children don’t show symptoms, they can still spread COVID-19 to other children. Even if your child doesn’t look sick, they could put their classmates at risk. Teach your kids regular hand-washing and wearing masks. You should also have them tested when you can.
