Health Editor’s Note: Despite Trump’s comments that children ‘almost never get sick with COVID-19’ and “are almost immune to it”, there have been 853,000 children who have tested positive for coronavirus, with 200,000 of those cases arriving during the month of October. The numbers mentioned here may even be low as children often are not tested or diagnosed with COVID-19 because they may have little to none of the symptoms such as fever, cough, and shortness of breath. Fever and cough were found in just over half of the children in one study and shortness of breath was found in only 13%. Other common symptoms reported by adults are not seen in children at all.
