According to a Swedish TV report on the 15th, Stockholm’s Astrid Lindgren Children’s Hospital recently discovered that the number of children seeking medical care for long-term symptoms of the new crown has increased sharply.The hospital's chief physician, Marin Rudd Linde, who specializes in children's long-term diseases, said that the average age of these children with long-term symptoms of the new crown is 11 to 13 years.Fatigue, sore throat, headache and nausea, and recurrent infections are the most common symptoms of these cases.Some children also have problems with attention and memory deficits.
"Some children can continue to go to school, and some are completely bedridden." Linde said, although the long-term symptoms of the new crown in children may be milder than the symptoms of adults, "but we must invest resources for these children."
At present, the hospital has organized psychologists, physical therapists, cardiologists, pulmonologists, and neurologists to conduct consultations with these children.
The latest British research shows that the long-term symptoms of the new crown may be more common than people think.The National Bureau of Statistics of the United Kingdom stated in December last year that one in five people infected with the new crown virus had symptoms lasting 12 weeks or longer; one in ten infected people had symptoms lasting 5 weeks or longer.
