In almost half of children who have had coronavirus, at least one symptom can persist for up to four months. According to scientists, most often children, like adults, complain of insomnia, nasal congestion, chest tightness, pain in muscles and joints, difficulty concentrating and fatigue.

As they write "News", Problems in adult patients can persist for up to six months. At the same time, there is no definite answer yet, what percentage of the population is subject to such consequences.

The effect of coronavirus on children was studied by an international team of scientists from Italy, Great Britain and Russia. The study was based on data from 129 infected minors of different ages. The median age was 11 years.

According to the results, 42% of the children recovered completely after four months. Another third of patients complained of one or two persistent symptoms of coronavirus, and another 25% reported three or more symptoms. In addition, one in ten reported difficulty concentrating, and from 6% to 18% of children complained about each symptom.

Most often, such consequences were observed in those who had a hard time suffering from coronavirus. However, asymptomatic patients were no exception. At the same time, Russian scientists recalled that other viral and infectious diseases can cause a similar clinical picture.
