A new variant of the coronavirus has once again started creating havoc in life and around the world. The epidemic that started in the year 2019 has continuously seen new variants, of which Delta has proved to be the deadliest so far. Now the cases of Omicron are also increasing rapidly and the risk of infection with this strain is greater than ever before. This new version is becoming a cause of concern not only for adults but also for children. This has also increased the concern of parents, especially for children who are too young to be vaccinated.
These symptoms can be seen in children under 5 years of age
It is best to keep your children indoors, and at least go out yourself, to avoid the risk of infection. A new variant of Covid-19 can cause different symptoms in young children. A recent report suggested that the Omicron variant might cause a harsh, barking cough called croup in children.
According to doctors, croup cough is usually not serious and easy to diagnose, but it can come as a surprise to parents who have never experienced it. It manifests as a barking cough like that of a dog or seal. Children who are infected with Omicron, which settles in the respiratory tract, are more likely to develop croup. When a child is infected and develops croup, he or she often has a severe cough, which is caused by breathing through an infected airway.
Other symptoms of Omicron in children
Because children under the age of 5 have not yet been vaccinated, they are at a higher risk of developing the infection. This is why it is important to pay attention to the symptoms that are developing in children. As mentioned in the report, children can have some common symptoms like fever, sore throat, cough, and sore throat if infected. Fever, runny nose, body aches, and dry cough are also common symptoms of Omicron in children. To keep children safe, it is most important to follow the Covid guidelines. Parents and other adults in the house should wear masks and try their best to avoid infection in the house.
