(ANSA) – ROME, FEB 9 – Italy’s Higher Health Institute (ISS)
said Tuesday that the evidence gathered so far does not back up
the hypothesis that the new British strain of COVID-19 is
particularly contagious for children.
    “Many studies are being done but, at the moment, it does not
seem that the English variant specifically targets children,
that is, it does not infect children in a particular way
compared to others,” ISS experts said in their updated FAQ on
the coronavirus.
    The experts said there was not enough data to make any
hypotheses about the other strains of COVID-19.
    In response to the question ‘Do the variants hit children in
particular?’, the experts wrote “up to now the most worrying
variants do not seem to cause more serious symptoms in any age
group”. (ANSA).
