Early data from @RCHMelbourne show that, at 3-6 month follow-up, all 151 children with mild and asymptomatic #COVID19 had returned to their baseline health status and post-acute COVID-19 symptoms had resolved.

Given such little available data, this study from Australia on post-acute COVID-19 symptoms in children is very important
Findings are extremely reassuring
Post-acute symptoms were rare, and mild (cough 4%, fatigue 2%, cough and fatigue 1%)

Great to see research looking at whether long Covid is a problem in children.
From this Melbourne cohort, enduring cough and fatigue are uncommon.
It hasn’t been clear to me whether borders will reopen before children are vaccinated so this is VIP https://t.co/iLXqwXJmOt

Truly encouraging data on post-acute #COVID19 in children. Single-center in Australia. n=151.
8% post-acute symptoms – all symptomatic COVID-19.
Mild symptoms: cough 4%, fatigue 2%, both 1%. Duration: cough 3-8w; post-viral fatigue 6-8w. All solved in follow-up time 3-6 months. https://t.co/vKrEFZlw3C
