For the first time, a comparative study has been conducted between children and adults regarding Corona. According to the study, two times more antibodies are being formed in children than adults after corona. Although different mutations have been reported in the virus, but during the last two years, researchers have not recorded any significant effect on the child’s immunity.
In this study, according to Dr. Rajeev Jayadevan, former president of the Indian Medical Association, since the beginning of the corona epidemic, its effect on children has been very weak, but there have been exceptions in some cases. Talking about the large number, the child is still in a very safe position regarding the corona infection, but if someone shows symptoms, they should be kept in isolation for a while and special precautions should be taken.
Published in the medical journal Medrexiv, researchers from Emory University in Georgia analyzed the status of more than 23 children before and after the infection. According to the analysis, after five hundred days after recovery from Corona, antibodies were recorded in sufficient quantity, which protected them from the mutation of the virus. Similarly, in adults, antibody levels were lower between three and six months. Also, different mutations are affecting them at different times. The findings raise important questions about the immune gap between young children and adults and may have broad implications for vaccination and booster dose strategies in this age group, the researchers say.
Dr. Anand of All India Institute of Medical Sciences, AIIMS, New Delhi says that the effect of corona infection on children is less than on adults, but by conducting this kind of study in large numbers, good conclusions can be given to the world. The study was conducted on infected children between April 2020 and January 2022, when the world was facing different forms and subforms of Omicron.
