Among adolescents, there has been a tendency towards an increase in the incidence of coronavirus. This became known during a meeting on the sanitary-epidemiological situation in the country.

“The structure of the incidence of children has changed. We say that children of all ages are susceptible, but in recent days there has been a tendency to increase the incidence of disease in adolescents aged 15-17, ”said Alexander Gorelov, director of the Central Research Institute of Epidemiology of the Federal Agency for Public Health, Rospotrebnadzor.

At the same time, he noted that 78% of sick adolescents suffer from mild and moderate forms of coronavirus infection. The total increase in the proportion of minors among the infected now ranges from 5% to 7%.
