Course Summary

Coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) in children is not well understood in the pediatric population. Common symptoms include fever and respiratory and gastrointestinal symptoms. In some cases there have been rare findings of liver disease. Treatment includes medical management of antibiotic administration, which includes laboratory and possibly radiological testing. Pediatric patients diagnosed with COVID-19 can show signs of severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS). The number of COVID-19 infected children is significantly less than the number of COVID-19 infected adults. The mortality risk for children infected with COVID-19 is not known. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reviews and reports on all pediatric cases of confirmed COVID-19 infection.
