But, “most children don’t have any consequences after being infected with Omicron,” she says.
According to her, some young patients still had mild fever, fatigue and headache when the disease occurred.
“Such children should be under medical supervision, generally (under the supervision of) a local pediatrician. If necessary, (they) should be examined further,” she added.
