Yes, kids can get Covid-19': Three paediatricians explain what's known  about children and coronavirus | Parent

Dr. Lisa Gwynn, an associate professor of clinical pediatrics and public health sciences at the Miller School of Medicine at the University of Miami, said that yes, children can get COVID-19.

However, according to Brian Labus, PhD, MPH, an assistant professor in the School of Public Health at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, the infection rates in children are low.

Adults over age 75 have 10 times the rate of infection of children, said Labus.

Adults under 45 have 5 times the rate of infection.

“When children do get infected,” explained Labus, “they tend to have a very mild disease compared to adults.”
