Children spread coronavirus ‘more efficiently’ than adults: study


According to a study published in The Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), children spread COVID-19 faster than adults.

The study found that children spread the coronavirus “more efficiently” than adults because they have a high “viral load”. Viral load refers to the amount of virus carried by a person.

The study focused on children under five who were infected and had mild to moderate symptoms. The researchers found that these children had 10 to 100 times more virus in their noses and throats than older children and adults.

According to the results of the study, we need to protect our children for two reasons; one, because the risk of infection is now high and two because children pose a risk to those around them.

This also means that it is important to vaccinate children as early as possible. But can we give them the same blow as an adult? The answer is yes, even children can receive the same vaccine, but the dosage must be adjusted.

Vaccine makers around the world are testing their vaccine shots on children with companies like Pfizer and Moderna conducting dosing trials, trying to determine what dose of vaccine is safe for children.

The dosage of these vaccines will be adjusted according to a child’s age, that is, children of different ages will receive a different dose of the vaccine, depending on their body’s tolerance.
