[Source; Science Daily]
Infants and toddlers who experienced community infection with SARS-CoV-2, the coronavirus that causes COVID-19, had significantly higher levels of antibodies against the virus compared to adults, according to a study led by researchers at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health in collaboration with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
The new study suggests that children tend to have strong antibody responses after SARS-CoV-2 infection. Understanding antibody responses to SARS-CoV-2 at different ages can inform COVID-19 vaccine strategies and policies.
