Harvard University study: Children infected with corona are “reservoirs” for the development of new variables

A Harvard University research study revealed that children infected with the Corona virus are potential “reservoirs” for the development of new variables, in addition to being potential spreaders of current variables.

According to a statement by the university on its official website, by studying 110 children between the ages of two weeks to 21 years who tested positive for the Corona virus at Massachusetts General Hospital. (MGH) or urgent care clinics, researchers confirmed previous findings that infants, children and teens are equally capable of carrying high levels of coronavirus. in respiratory secretions.

The researchers showed that these high levels of virus are consistent with a live infectious virus, and that levels are higher early in the disease in both diseases, and asymptomatic and asymptomatic children found no relationship between the age of the children and the amount of viral load..

The researchers published additional data on many features of the pediatric coronavirus in the Journal of Infectious Diseases, and there was a question about whether a high viral load in children was linked to the live virus. These high viral loads are contagious.”

Reassuringly, they also found that viral load had nothing to do with the severity of the disease in the children themselves, but concerns remained for them and those around them: “Children can carry the virus and infect others.”

The researchers emphasized that as coronavirus variants continue to emerge, infected children are potential “reservoirs” for the development of new variants in addition to potential spreaders of existing variants, and children with coronavirus, even if they do not show symptoms, are contagious and can harbor coronavirus variants. Both disease severity and vaccine efficacy, as we see with the delta variable.

The implications of this study show that masks and other public health measures are necessary for all children, teens and adults to get us out of this pandemic.“.
