A new study shows children from all ages can suffer from long COVID 症状.
In a study published Wednesday in the journal NS Lancet 子供 & Adolescent 健康, parents of over 44,000 children in Denmark, ages zero through 14, responded to a survey to determine the effects of COVID in children.
約 11,000 of the children tested positive between January 2020 と7月 2021, and those who did not have the virus were used as a control group.
The study found that children aged 0-3 years old who have had COVID had a higher chance of stomach aches and mood swings after recovering from the virus than the control group of the same age.
The common symptoms for children up through age 3 were mood swings, rashes, stomach aches, cough and loss of appetite. 子供達 4 に 11 years old had mood swings, memory loss and concentration problems. Children between 12 と 14 years old also had memory and concentration issues, mood swings and fatigue.
For each of these symptoms, duration lasted a variety of months, from two months up to 12. And in 12–14 year olds, more girls than boys had at least one symptom lasting more than two months.
The study also found that children 3 and under seemed to have the most problems compared with those children not diagnosed with COVID — 40% experienced symptoms two months after testing positive compared with 27% in the group that did not have COVID.
