COVID symptoms in Babies and Children?
Generally, COVID-19 Symptoms in kids and babies are milder than those in adults, and some infected children may not have any signs of being sick at all.
COVID-19 symptoms for children and adults include:
- Fever of 100.4F or greater
- Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
- Muscle or body aches
- Sore throat
- New loss of taste or smell
- New fatigue
- Nausea or vomiting
- Congestion or runny nose
