The new study conducted by Israel researchers found that 1 in 10 Israeli children experienced the after-effects of Covid 19 symptoms after recovering from their illnesses. The study used a phone survey to analyze the effects on children.
The researchers conducted a phone survey in May-June 2021. Nearly 13,834 parents of kids aged 3-18 who recovered from Covid 19 participated. The results of the study showed that 11.2% of the kids had faced symptoms after recovery. This data has dropped from 1.8% to 4.6% six months following acute illness, depending on the child’s age.
The study conducted by Israel didn’t disclose any other symptoms. The study also reported that based on the data collected, it is evident that the coronavirus has long-term effects not only on the adult population but also among children. The long-term morbidity rate means that there are thousands of children in Israel with long-term symptoms. The study shows that teens face a lot of mental issues during this pandemic.
