Long Covid: ‘It is heartbreaking to watch your child suffer’
Long-COVID strikes between 10% and 30% of children, many who had mild cases of the virus.
Israeli health experts had seemed sure that children were not at risk from coronavirus during the first and second waves of the pandemic, but have since revised that assessment.
On Monday, Meir Medical Center in Kfar Saba reported that two children, ages eight and 14, were hospitalized with post-coronavirus symptoms. They had fallen ill a month ago, the hospital reported, and now suffer from “a complex disease that includes multi-system failure.”
