In the Khabarovsk Territory, symptoms of coronavirus are increasingly being detected in children. However, they differ from the signs of the disease in adults.

As EastRussia was told in the regional government, the coronavirus hospital is now open on the basis of the children's KKB im. A.K. Piotrovich. In the first waves of morbidity, children and adolescents tolerated the coronavirus mostly asymptomatic. Therefore, many cases were ignored by doctors, and the spread of the disease continued in families and children's groups.

Now a new strain of the delta coronavirus has begun to manifest itself in children and adolescents. Parents confuse it with an intestinal infection, and they will find out about the diagnosis already in the hospital. At the same time, doctors note that in children, 30% more often COVID-19 is accompanied by intestinal disorders. Vomiting and stool disturbances are common signs. Together with them, there is also a cough, rash, runny nose, difficulty breathing, taste and odor disturbances. The latter signs are much less common in comparison with adults.

As the Deputy Chief Physician for Pediatrics at the Children's Regional Clinical Hospital named after V.I. A.K. Piotrovich Elena Ulyanova, the incidence in children is almost the same as in adults. There is pneumonia, but there are no serious or fatal cases. A total of 18 children are now undergoing treatment, and up to three people are hospitalized daily. During the entire time of the pandemic, 460 children were admitted to the hospital.
