How is Covid 19 likely to affect our kids long term?

Since the start of the pandemic parents were reassured that children were likely to be less affected by the virus. It was less likely they would catch it, and if they caught it their symptoms would be less severe. And while it appears that the latter is still true, the Omicron variant has meant many more children have caught the coronavirus. Dr Nusrat Homaira is a paediatric respiratory epidemiologist at UNSW and Sydney Children’s Hospital Randwick. She says that we can make some educated guesses on the long term impact of the coronavirus based on what we know from older respiratory viruses that affect children.  See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
