According to a survey released by the Israeli Ministry of Health, about 1 in 10 children still have symptoms after recovering from COVID-19, but after a few months, the rate will drop by more than half.
According to the Israeli Ministry of Health, severe illness caused by the COVID-19 is the most common in adults, but there is currently a lack of data on the impact of the virus on young people, who are less likely to have serious complications.
The Israeli Ministry of Health conducted a telephone interview with 13,834 parents in June, asking whether children aged 3 to 18 who recovered from the infection at home still had symptoms, including breathing problems, listlessness, loss of smell and taste, etc.
According to the Ministry of Health, 11.2% of children still have some symptoms after recovery. After 6 months of infection, the proportion will drop to 1.8% to 4.6%, and the situation is more serious for older children.
A few months ago, Israel agreed to vaccinate for the children of 16 to 18 year old.
