Children and covid

Dr Mark Cotton | Head Of The Children'S Infecti at Tygerberg Hospital

There are reports that Department of Health statistics show that show 755 children
under the age of nine have contracted COVID-19, accounting for almost 3% of the
current number of confirmed cases. Experts agree that young children have a lower risk
of contracting the virus. We speak to Dr Mark Cotton, the head of the paediatric
infectious diseases unit at Tygerberg Children’s Hospital about why some do contract
Covid-19, concerns about inflammatory complications possibly linked to the virus that
have been seen in New York and the United Kingdom, and whether children under the
age of two should wear masks.
