Children infected with COVID-19 are at higher risk afterwards for certain symptoms or conditions, according to a study released today by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. These include blood clots, heart conditions, kidney failure and type 1 diabetes. 

“Many of these conditions were rare or uncommon among children in this analysis, but even a small increase in these conditions is notable,” CDC said. “Caregivers and health care professionals who are in contact with children aged 0-17 years need to be aware of the common symptoms and warning signs of post-COVID conditions.”
