Study: Asymptomatic COVID Infection Possible in Kids | #coronavirus | #kids. | #children

A recently-completed study from the Indiana University School of Medicine shows asymptomatic COVID-19 infection is possible in children under the age of 10. The Tracking Asymptomatic COVID-19 Through Indianapolis Communities, or TACTIC, study found that out of more than 500 people who were tested, one child had an active case of COVID-19. “We now know that asymptomatic infection can occur in young children with no known contact to the virus, and they do not necessarily spread it to others,” said Dr. Chandy John, one of the study’s co-leaders. “Community studies in other countries have not found this.”
