So, according to the specialist, due to the spread of the delta strain, adolescents began to carry the disease in a more severe form. It also led to a deterioration in recovery from the illness. Among other things, sometimes COVID-19 led to the death of adolescents.
“Vaccination of adolescents is needed to protect them from the severe course of infection and to protect others, for whom they can become a source of infection. Since the spread of the “delta” strain of the virus, adolescents have also become more difficult to tolerate the infection: moderate and severe cases of the course with lung damage have appeared ”– said the doctor.
He drew attention to the fact that during the fourth wave the children’s departments were “packed”. In addition to the above consequences, the transferred coronavirus in children can result in a multisystem inflammatory syndrome.
