A study that included a telephone questionnaire of 13,838 parents of children ages 3 to 18, showed a correlation between the age of the child and the risk for Long Covid symptoms. For instance, older children, aged 12-18, appear to be more susceptible to long-COVID symptoms, compared to children aged 3-6.
The study also found that children of all ages, who suffered a symptomatic disease when infected with the virus, were more likely to present long-COVID symptoms.
