What are the symptoms in children?

Children with COVID-19 may have mild, cold-like symptoms, such as fever, runny nose, and cough, and some children experience vomiting and diarrhea. Occasionally, a child gets really sick after being infected with COVID-19. There have been some rare reports of children who have multi-system inflammatory syndrome, which has been compared to Kawasaki disease or toxic shock syndrome. The American Academy of Pediatrics advises parents to call a pediatrician if their child has any of the following symptoms:

  • a fever that will not go away
  • abdominal pain, diarrhea, or vomiting
  • rash or changes in skin color
  • pink or red eyes
  • trouble breathing
  • the child seems confused or overly sleepy​
