“The vast majority of children who get coronavirus will only get a mild illness and be absolutely fine.”
Mild symptoms of coronavirus include a fever, cough and fatigue.
For anybody worried about the symptoms of coronavirus, make use of the NHS 111 online tool.
In fact, the NHS advises parents, grandparents or carers, to call 111 if the child is displaying the following symptoms of coronavirus:
- A high temperature
- A new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot, for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours
