Drug development for long Covid-19 in children warrants unique focus on how mechanisms, prevalence differ from adults

"Treating long Covid-19 in children will require a specific focus on that population’s symptom profile and underlying disease mechanisms, despite apparent similarities between paediatric and adult long-haulers, experts and advocacy group leaders said. In children, the lack of well-documented acute Covid-19 cases, the lagging awareness of long Covid-19’s prevalence, and the safety concerns associated with younger individuals present unique research barriers, they added."

'The doctor told me there's no such thing': The children living with Long Covid every day

"Liliana Jackson’s Covid symptoms became so severe last year, she faced Christmas Day in A&E.

But instead of being treated with sympathy and understanding by the doctors she met that day, the 16-year-old was told “there’s no such thing as long Covid in children”.

Eight-year-old Dylan had a similar experience after contracting the virus early last year.

He became ill with Covid in February, with stomach pains, night sweats, bone ache, and headaches, among with a plethora of other symptoms, but things did not improve for Dylan, and after three weeks, his symptoms had become more severe."

Schoolboy, 10, too weak to walk after developing long covid-type illness

"A 10-year-old schoolboy has been left in a wheelchair after developing a mystery illness, thought to be Long Covid.

Jacob Parish, 10, from New Waltham, has not been at school since March as he awaits a formal diagnosis for the condition which has left him unable to walk.

Mum, Victoria Parish, believes he might have Postural Tachycardia Syndrome (PoTs) trigged by Long Covid."

Most children who catch Covid have mild or even asymptomatic cases.

But that's small consolation to the parents who've seen their happy, healthy children completely debilitated for months with long Covid.

And with lockdown restrictions lifting this week, experts and parents fear more unvaccinated children across the country will be at greater risk of developing the harrowing illness.

‘It’s terrifying’: parents’ struggle to get help for children with Long Covid

"Lack of research into area means children are being sent away from A&E and parents told they are overanxious...

"It’s emerging that this is an overlooked and special area of people affected by Covid,” he [Michael Rosen] said. “We’ve allowed the common understanding to spread that children don’t get Covid and/or if they get it, they don’t get it bad, and that if they get it, they don’t get long Covid. Clearly, things aren’t that simple and we need more detail and more stats to tell us more.”

Children may be at risk from long Covid symptoms, study finds

"Children who are hospitalised with coronavirus may be at risk of persistent fatigue and other symptoms of long Covid, according to researchers who examined the health of patients months after they were discharged.

Scientists interviewed the parents of more than 500 children who were admitted to a Moscow hospital with Covid between April and August last year. They found that a quarter had ongoing symptoms more than five months after returning home, with the most common ailments being fatigue, sleep disruption and sensory problems."

Pupils evacuated as school installs air quality alarms to stop spread of Covid

"Head teacher Ian Rix said: “Now we know when the levels aren’t safe, twice we have evacuated children from the classrooms when it has increased to the red level and they haven’t been allowed to return until we have reached the green level.

“This makes the staff and children feel reassured that their learning space is being properly ventilated. I feel happier knowing people are working in a safer environment.”

The CO2 monitors were supplied by the Long Covid Kids (LCK) campaign group, which is pushing for schools to have better ventilation to avoid youngsters contracting the virus and suffering Long Covid whose ongoing symptoms can last for months and include severe fatigue."

Long COVID in children: what parents and teachers need to know

"The pandemic has affected children and young people in many ways. Some have missed a year of school. Children’s mental wellbeing has also suffered, and a reduction in physical activity and fitness is a health risk too. Importantly, children and young people are reported to be fearful about their future. If long COVID is added to this mix, the challenges are immense...

If you think your child has long COVID, keep notes of symptoms and patterns. You can then take these to consultations with medical practitioners. It may be that you are more aware of long COVID in children than your GP. You can also seek support and information from advocacy groups such as Long Covid Kids."

Forgotten children living with long Covid

"A year ago Isabel Walton competed in dance and gymnastics competitions and was learning martial arts. Now the ten-year-old from Doncaster has to be carried to bed each night as she is too weak to take the stairs.

She is one of more than 80,000 children in England thought to be suffering from debilitating symptoms related to long Covid. Parents are urging the government to set up specialist clinics to treat the “forgotten children” whose lives have been stalled by the virus."

Long Covid in children: New data is cause for concern, scientists say
"Recently published British data has caused worry. It suggests that 13 per cent of under-11s and about 15 per cent of 12- to 16-year-olds reported at least one symptom five weeks after a confirmed Covid-19 infection. The figures were gathered by the UK Office for National Statistics, which samples households randomly, meaning positive cases do not depend on having had symptoms and being tested."
