Clinical manifestations of SARS-CoV-2 in children are not typical. These range from relatively mild to no symptoms in 90% of patients to a severe Kawasaki like disease compared to adults. The outcome is usually favorable in children. There are relatively few studies related to coronavirus disease (COVID-19) in children, no major clinical trials exist.
