GIUSEPPE, Grandy; TERAN, Carlos G; MARTINEZ, Alejandro  and  VOLZ, Anna.   Covid-19, a look from pediatrics . Gac Med Bol [online]. 2020, vol.43, n.1, pp.56-66. ISSN 1012-2966.

COVID-19 was predominantly more prevalent among adults over the age of 15 in the early stages of the outbreak, and the proportion of confirmed cases among children was relatively lower. However, because younger children cannot wear chinstraps and no other preventive measures have been taken in this group. Children have certain peculiarities and we cannot clearly demonstrate their state of health, which has contributed to the serious challenge of protecting, diagnosing and treating this population. Due to the increasing worldwide spread of SARS-CoV-2, we have new challenges for the prevention and control of the COVID-19 epidemic among children. At the same time, children with comorbidities are vulnerable to SARS-CoV-2 infection. The present review tries to show this disease from the pediatric point of view, to guide its diagnosis and management.
