Proof mounts that youngsters are extremely unlikely to contract or go on COVID-19 to adults, the provincial well being officer, Dr. Bonnie Henry, reported on Tuesday.
Henry stated there was a rising accumulation of proof that youngsters typically go the illness on to one another, however for probably the most half youngsters get it from adults.

“There’s a nice paper out of the Netherlands which really helps us understand this a little bit and it looked at transmission from young people to adults and from adults to young people and the bottom line with it is there’s growing accumulation of evidence that children do sometimes pass it on to each other, but for the most part children get it from adults,” Henry stated.
“So, that is reassuring to us. It’s never absolute, so you do need to be careful and we need to make sure that if your children are going out, going to school, going to play dates or summer camps that we check them carefully and make sure that they’re not sick, that nobody else is sick in that environment, and that they keep their groups small and that helps protect your family as well.”
