Little is known about how the COVID-19 coronavirus affects young children, and a small Chinese study provided few answers. "This shows that infants are getting infected, but at least in this study, all had mild illness. Some had no symptoms," said Waleed Javaid, MD, associate professor of medicine and infectious disease at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, who was not involved in the study. He added, “This is a retrospective study, so it's limited by information documented and that can be a flaw, as some information may be missing.”
