Understanding on how COVID-19 affects children
Journal of Childhood & Developmental Disorders is pleased to announce Special issue on “Understanding on how COVID-19 affects children”.
Just as with adults, children exposed to the coronavirus can be infected with it and display signs of Covid-19. At the beginning of the pandemic, it was thought that children are not getting infected with the coronavirus, but now it is clear that the amount of infection in children is the same as in adults. In general, children with Covid-19 experience milder symptoms than adults.
The transmission of the virus is also likely the same as adults, some patients were asymptomatic at diagnosis, while others had fever, fatigue, dry cough, and other respiratory symptoms. And it is unknown whether COVID-19 can be transmitted through breast milk to infants. Few precautions should be taken like healthy children should be limited from visiting the healthcare facility for nonurgent reasons to prevent widespread transmission and also need to isolate children who are potentially sick with the virus especially from the family members and elderly relatives.
With the same purpose our Journal “Journal of Childhood & Developmental Disorders” is announcing Special issue Call for paper on “Understanding on how COVID-19 affects children”. We welcome both solicited and unsolicited submissions that will contribute to this special issue.
