Limited data suggest that children often have mild and asymptomatic disease, but some do require hospitalization. In a report from China, of the total infections, 2.4% were children. Although most children infected with SARS-CoV-2 have either asymptomatic (4%), mild illness (51%), or moderate illness (39%), severe illness has been reported in 6% of pediatric cases. The incubation period is similar to that of adults. This article briefly outlines SARS CoV-2 Infection in Children.
