Specialist of the private medical group “Invitro”, infectious disease doctor Andrei Pozdnyakov warned that the “delta” variant of the coronavirus is as dangerous for children as it is for adults. It is reported by RIA News…
As Pozdnyakov explained, both adults and children are sick more seriously than a year ago, especially if they already have a background pathology. In addition, children are more likely to have massive lung lesions, thrombosis, other severe manifestations of COVID-19, as well as postcoid syndrome. We are also talking about a multisystem inflammatory syndrome, which can occur even after a mild illness and requires hospitalization.
“Thus, the differences in the severity of the disease between children and adults, unfortunately, are gradually leveled. Although the percentage of mild forms in both children and adults is higher than severe, ”he concluded.
Earlier, Rinat Maksyutov, General Director of the Vector Center of Rospotrebnadzor, said that the prevalence of the “delta” strain of coronavirus over other strains in Russia exceeded 95 percent. In some regions of the country, the “delta” strain is recorded in 99 percent of cases.
