The risks of long covid in children — which could include respiratory or cardiac problems, fatigue, brain fog and other symptoms that can last for months or, potentially, years — remain a big unknown. An Israeli study, one of the first on the topic, of 13,864 children published this week, found that 11 percent of those infected had signs of long covid. Israel’s Health Ministry emphasized, however, that some of the children’s symptoms may also be due to prolonged lockdowns, school closures and global conflict including the fighting in the Gaza Strip.
