According to the study done in South Korea, it claimed that children who were diagnosed with COVID-19 when on to spread the disease for up to three weeks time, which is a little more than the normal incubation time for the virus.
In this study, it was also found that COVID-19 was largely restricted to the upper respiratory tract includes infecting the nasal cavities of young children. With or without the symptoms the COVID-19 could stay in the children’s nose up to 3 weeks.
According to the British study published on Friday, scientists are very confident that children are less likely to become ill than adults even if they do get hit with many not showing any symptoms at all.
The South Korean study was done on 91 children which found that even among those with a few or no symptoms, the virus could be found in their swabs, with the risk of spreading the virus up to 3 weeks.
Also once they had identified the isolated case, in which patients were rapidly tested until the virus had cleared. However, the study gives us new information about children as carriers of the virus, and the potential capacity to be spreading it onwards is high.
