The omicron variant continues to increase nationwide, infecting children and adults alike. But it turns out that children do not feel all the symptoms that adults have.

The news: Dr. Sam Dominguez, a pediatric infectious disease physician at Colorado Children’s Hospital, told WCNC-TV that children become infected with omicron. They are also experiencing different symptoms compared to adults.

Symptoms in children: Dr. Harish Chafle, senior consultant in pulmonology and critical care at Parel Global Hospital in Mumbai, told The Hindustan Times that most children experience these symptoms of COVID-19 when infected with omicron:

  1. Fever.
  2. Nasal discharge.
  3. Sore throat.
  4. Body pain.
  5. Dry cough.

Yes, but: The omicron variant has created an increase in severe COVID-19 symptoms and hospitalizations among unvaccinated children, as I reported on Deseret News.

  • Children under the age of 5 have been shown to be the most vulnerable because they are not eligible for COVID-19 vaccines.
