A new study of 85,000 Covid-19 cases in India and 6 lakh of their contacts, published on Wednesday in the journal Science, found that children of all ages can be infected with the virus and spread it to others — offering compelling evidence on one of the most divisive questions about the virus.
“The claims that children have no role in the infection process are certainly not correct,” said Dr Joseph Lewnard, an epidemiologist at the University of California, Berkeley, who led the study. “There’s, granted, not an enormous number of kids in the contact tracing data, but those who are in it are certainly transmitting.”
