COVID-19 and Kids: What we know and don’t know

Since the COVID-19 pandemic was declared in early March 2020, epidemiologists and others have been sharing data on its prevalence and impacts. Compared to adults, children appear to be less likely to be infected and experience a milder course of the illness when they do contract the virus. That said, some children can become quite ill with the disease, including new syndromes that may be linked with COVID-19 infection.

In this webinar by Children’s Healthcare Canada, Dr Srinivas Murthy, MD, Investigator with BC Children’s Hospital and Clinical Associate Professor, Department of Pediatrics, Faculty of Medicine, University of British Columbia and Dr Nicole Le Saux, MD, Professor at the University of Ottawa in the Division of Infectious Disease at the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, provide an update on what is known about COVID-19 and children.
