Corona: Do not panic, your children are safe, do read this news

London: Most of the patients under 18 years of age of Kovid-19 fall moderately ill and cases of their lives are also very rare. This information has been revealed in the first study conducted on 582 children and adolescents from many countries.

The study found that even though most have to be hospitalized, less than one in 10 patients need to be treated in ICU. Children and adolescents aged from three days to 18 years were included in this study.

Researchers warn against seeing the number of children included in the study from the perspective of a large population.

However, he says the results of his study should be considered when plans are being made to demand intensive care services after the outbreak of the global epidemic.

Lead author Mark Tebrugge of University College London (UCL), UK, said, “Our study provides the most comprehensive overview of Kovid-19 in children and adolescents so far.” ”

He said, “Overall, most children and adolescents fall ill.” Despite this, a significant number of children become seriously ill and need to be kept in ICU. And this should be kept in mind at a time when healthcare resources are being planned and given priority due to the outbreak of global epidemic. ”

The study was conducted from April 1 to April 24 during the peak of the Kovid-19 epidemic in Europe.

This research has been published in the journal “The Lancet Child and Adolescent Health”.
