Lung damage is less common in children with COVID-19 infection - according to a study.

 

Out of everything we know about COVID-19, it's apparent that it affects the respiratory system, which can lead to other dangerous ailments in extreme circumstances. Complete recovery might take months, and in severe circumstances, it can be fatal. While scientists are still debating whether or not there will be the third wave, a new study offers some encouraging news for children. 

According to new research, the risk of lung injury from novel coronavirus infection in children is quite low. The lungs of children infected with coronavirus have been discovered to operate in the same way as they did before the illness. 
The study was presented at the European Respiratory Society's annual meeting.
According to the study, coronavirus infection in young people has no long-term impact on lung function. Even for those with asthma, coronavirus infection had no effect on their lung capacity, according to the study. These individuals had respiratory problems, but their lung capacity was unaffected. 
 
Analysis 
The participants in the Stockholm study were young people with an average age of 22. People born between 1994 and 1996 were included. Between 2016 and 2019, before COVID, these patients were subjected to a variety of tests. 
Between October 2020 and May 2021, these people developed coronavirus illnesses.
Lung function tests, as well as eosinophil and inflammatory testing, were performed after the infection and recovery. Antibodies against SARS-CoV-2 were found in the blood of 178 of the 661 affected children. The findings of the tests and studies showed that after healing from corona, the lungs' functional ability was the same in children as it was in adults. 
 
Children 
According to another study, COVID-19 infection has no effect on the lungs' ability to function in children and teenagers. A recent study, on the other hand, indicated that adolescents and teenagers with severe coronavirus infection had deteriorated lung health.
The goal of the study was to learn more about the effects of COVID on children's lungs because it was discovered that children recovered from an infection faster than the general population.
