Coronavirus rarely sickens children and if it does it is really mild. But a new study indicates that infected children carry the same amount of virus as an adult. New research shows that infected children under the age of 5 years, have 100 times more virus in comparison to adults. Young children can be potentially be important drivers of Sars-Cov-2 spread in the general population, as has been demonstrated with respiratory syntactical virus, where children with high viral loads are more likely to transmit.
Children and teenagers have half the risk of getting infected by Sars-Cov-2 as compared to adults according to a large systematic study. Covid-19 is causing Sars-Cov-2 which attacks different people differently. The dry cough is the sign of trouble. The covid-19 cough is a hoarse, dry cough which is a prominent symptom in the early days of infection. It has been noticed that a very small amount of covid patients have wet coughs.
Some of the famous patients recently testing positive for covid-19 are:
Amit Shah – Home Minister tests positive for coronavirus and is currently home quarantined on the basis of the doctor’s advice.
BS Yediyurappa – Karnataka CM tests positive for coronavirus and has been hospitalized.
Banwarilal Purohit – Tamil Nadu Governor tests positive for coronavirus and is self-isolated. 84 employees at Raj Bhawan, including fire and security personnel tested positive. The Governor’s office said that none of the 84 staffers came in contact with the governor.
Babul Supriyo – Union Minister and singer had met Amit Shah a day before he tested positive and is thus advised by the doctors to stay away from his family for a few days and to get the test done soon.
On a positive note, Big B, Aishwarya Rai and her daughter are back home as they tested negative for covid-19 and are yet to be kept in quarantine separately in their rooms. Although there is no news yet about Abhishek Bachchan.
