Long COVID in children can last up to two months – Long COVID

Studies show that chronic Kovid symptoms in children with Kovid may last for at least two months. The study was conducted by researchers at the University of Copenhagen in children under the age of 14 in Denmark. The research was published in The Lancet’s Journal of Child and Adolescent Health.

Researchers say the epidemic could also affect the quality of life of children. The study was conducted on 11,000 children who were Kovid positive between January 2020 and July 2021. Chronic Kovid symptoms such as occasional mood swings, skin rashes, and abdominal pain were observed in children up to three years of age. Chronic Kovid symptoms such as attention deficits, edema, and memory problems were found in children aged four to 11 years, while symptoms such as fatigue, inattention, memory loss, and mood swings were observed in 12-14 year olds.

The study also found that children of all ages had at least one symptom lasting two months or more. About 40% of children with Covid infection in the 0-3 age group experienced symptoms for more than two months. About 38% of children with Covid infection between the ages of 4-11 continued to have symptoms over the same period. In the 12-14 age group, it is 46 percent. The research report adds that more research is needed on the long-term effects of the epidemic on children.
