A study published in The Lancet has said that the symptoms of long Covid may change in children and the younger population over time. For the study, the researchers asked children in the age group of 11 to 17 how their health was six months and 12 months after taking the PCR tests. They were also asked to recall their symptoms when they took the tests.
Data of a total of 5,086 children were examined. Of those, 2,909 had tested positive for Covid-19, and 2,177 of whom tested negative. A list of 21 symptoms was drawn and the kids were asked if they had experienced those symptoms.
The symptoms included shortness of breath, tiredness, fatigue, and quality of well-being. At the time of testing, the researchers found, the health issues were more common in children and the younger population who had tested positive for the Covid-19 virus than those who didn’t. Those who tested positive, 10.9 per cent said they had fatigue at all three time points.
But those who tested negative, only 1.2 per cent reported fatigue at all three time points. The researchers found that the symptoms also changed over the time. While some symptoms reduced, some new emerged over time.
