About The Study: In this study of 1,884 SARS-CoV-2-positive children with 90-day follow-up, 5.8% of patients (including 9.8% of hospitalized children and 4.6% of discharged children) reported post-COVID-19 conditions, such as respiratory (cough, difficulty breathing or shortness of breath) and systemic (fatigue or weakness). Guidance and follow-up are particularly necessary for hospitalized children who have numerous acute symptoms and are older.
