Little Kids As Covid Carriers? Could Be!
Before the pandemic, kids were known for spreading viruses around, but a new study finds that children under age five may harbor up to 100 times as much of the Coronavirus in their noses and throats as infected adults and older children.
Researchers warn that young kids can potentially be important drivers for the spread of SARS-CoV-2 in the general population.
The findings disprove previous beliefs that children don’t play a major role in transmitting the Coronavirus. And just like so many other COVID considerations, what we knew in one moment, is gone in the next.
