Clinical characteristics of novel coronavirusdisease 2019 (COVID-19) in newborns, infants and children
Abstract Since December 2019, a novel coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) caused by a novel coronavirus, SARS-CoV-2, has been emerging in Wuhan, Hubei Province, China. It has spread to other areas of China and further to more than 40 countries and regions around the world. In Singapore, Japan, Korea, Italy, and Thailand, there have been community-based infections. A few cases of pneumonia in children with SARS-CoV-2 infection were reported. Pediatric cases are mainly family cluster cases, and most of them have epidemiological links to adult patients. Pediatric clinical manifestations are not typical, and relatively milder, compared with that of adult patients.
