Large Belgian study confirms: children are much less infected at school than at home and rarely become seriously ill

Children are much less infected with the corona virus at school than at home. If they do become infected, they are less likely to get COVID-19. And when they get that disease, they rarely get seriously ill. This is evident from a large-scale Belgian study into COVID-19 in children. The research results were published on the day that it is likely that decisions will have to be made about the start of the new school year.

Last school year, health institute Sciensano collected a mountain of interesting data from school-going children: how many children were tested for the coronavirus, how many tested positive, how sick did they become and at what age?

The figures were collected since the start of the epidemic in March to June 28, among school-aged children and young people under the age of 18. During the presentation of the research results, virologist Steven Van Gucht, showed an interesting graph: the number of infections in relation to the number of children tested.
