The omicron variant continues to surge throughout the country, infecting children and adults alike. But it turns out children don’t feel all the symptoms adults do.
The news: Dr. Sam Dominguez, a pediatric infectious disease doctor at Children’s Hospital Colorado, told WCNC-TV that children are getting infected with the omicron. They are experiencing different symptoms compared to adults, too.
Symptoms among children: Dr. Harish Chafle, a senior consultant of pulmonology and critical care at Global Hospital in Parel, Mumbai, told The Hindustan Times most children experience these COVID-19 symptoms when infected with omicron:
- Runny nose.
- Throat pain.
- Body ache.
- Dry cough.
- Children under 5 years old proved to be most vulnerable because they are not eligible for COVID-19 vaccines.
