The Impacts of Long Covid on Children

Identifying children with long Covid can be particularly challenging. Many children find it hard to keep up with schoolwork or find themselves skipping sports that they used to love.

Some children can’t sleep, while others may find it hard to breathe, feel dizzy, feel their heart racing or see spots. Other children may be tired while some may act hyperactive.

The symptoms may occur a month or more after having covid or even occur after a Covid infection so mild that they didn’t even know they had it. This sometimes makes it hard for parents or healthcare providers to realize the connection with Covid.
