3 main symptoms of Omicron in children

(ORDO NEWS) — A new strain of coronavirus Omicron can affect not only adults, but also children. Recently, the incidence rate among children of different ages has increased significantly.

Children who are less than a year old are the worst affected by the virus. Experts note that there are some symptoms that begin to appear immediately after infection and help to establish the presence of infection in the child’s body in time.

1473 children fell ill with Omicron. The number of new cases of infection is steadily increasing and causes concern among doctors. If we talk specifically about a new strain of the virus, then the following signs will help to recognize it:

  • In the youngest patients, there is a sharp increase in body temperature
  • Quite often there is a runny nose and severe nasal congestion
  • Another symptom is a dry throat. In this case, a burning sensation begins to appear in it, which in turn adversely affects the child’s appetite.

Experts note that when infected with the Omicron strain, the temperature drops very badly in the first two days and then starts to increase rapidly again.

It is worth paying attention to the fact that the only effective way to protect yourself from a dangerous disease or avoid a severe form of coronavirus is to get vaccinated on time.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has reported that the Pfizer vaccine is 93% effective in preventing adolescents aged 12 to 18 from being hospitalized.

In order to get your child vaccinated, you must contact one of the vaccination centers. In this case, you need to have a birth certificate, an identification code and a passport for children over 14 years old.

It is worth noting that up to 14 years of age, the mandatory consent of either one of the parents or guardians is required.
