Looking Ahead: Scientists Concerned About COVID-19 in Children

The coronavirus pandemic continues, and with it mass vaccinations. In some countries, this process is progressing faster, while others cannot yet afford active vaccination due to the lack of drugs. However, even herd immunity in different countries may not completely solve the problem with the spread of the virus. According to scientists, another unpleasant twist is not excluded, which this time will concern children.

Scientists from the Pennsylvania State University and the University of Oslo carried out calculations and came to the conclusion that after the adult population is massively vaccinated, children will begin to get sick with COVID-19. And this will continue until a vaccine for minors is developed and put into circulation.

Note that in a number of countries have already begun to vaccinate adolescents from 12 years old.

The publication Hessische Niedersächsische Allgemeine also published data on the human coronavirus OC43, which caused a flu epidemic in Asia and Russia in the 19th century. As a result, he became a common cold.

We would like to remind that in Moscow since the beginning of July, research has been carried out on the Sputnik V vaccine for adolescents aged 12 to 17 years. The results in the first volunteers were good and without side effects.

Earlier, the Ministry of Health spoke about the mandatory vaccination of children.
