What Does the Delta Variant Look Like in Kids?
- Nearly 94,000 child COVID-19 cases were reported in a single week, according to the American Academy of Pediatrics.
- The Delta variant is
more than twice as contagious as previous variantsand there’s data that suggests it might cause more severe illness.
- Yale Medicine reported that cough and loss of smell are less common with the Delta variant, while headache, sore throat, runny nose, and fever are among the top symptoms.
Unlike the earlier versions of the coronavirus, which, for the most part, left children alone, the new Delta variant is taking a considerable toll on kids — especially as children under 12 have not been vaccinated yet.
