Long Haul for Little Ones?

COVID-19 researchers have focused heavily on adults—but evidence suggests children may also develop long COVID, even if they showed no symptoms while infected.
Long COVID in children still hasn’t been medically defined—though over 100 symptoms, including fatigue, “brain fog”, muscle aches, gastrointestinal problems, dizziness, and seizures, have been reported among kids, notes Amir Khan, who sifted through the evidence in studies in Italy, Sweden, and the UK.
But the impact and causes are poorly understood—and deserve more research, Khan writes, especially as the debate around vaccinating kids swirls.
