As per news report of NDTV, Dr VK Paul, chairman of the National Expert Committee on Vaccine Administration, on Tuesday said while most children who contract the disease are asymptomatic, in some cases the virus can affect them in two ways. "In the first, they have reported pneumonia-like symptoms. In second, some cases of a multi-inflammatory syndrome has been found among children who recently recovered from C0VID19," he said. Explaining the second situation, he said in very rare cases, six weeks after recovery from Covid, some children get fever again, along with rashes and vomiting, he said. "We are observing this. Our doctors and paediatricians are well-trained to handle these post-Covid symptoms," he added. Children, he said, are generally asymptomatic. "They often get infections but their symptoms are minimal or nil. The infection has not taken serious shape in children," he said.
