Author(s): Danish Bhalla, Komal N Muneshwar* and Ashok Mehendale


Background: Coronavirus disease 2019 or COVID-19 is still wreaking havoc all across the world even after more than one and half year has been passed since its inception. More than three million causalities have been reported from across the world which is unprecedented in the past hundred years of human civilizational history. Pediatric age group have been so far escaped from the wrath of the COVID-19 as they are going through their peak of immune system response. Some neonates have suffered severe disease conditions due to COVID-19 and post COVID-19 related complications. COVID-19 infected mothers have not found to be transmitting the infection through womb or placenta also known as vertical transmission, but several antibodies taste for COVID-19 in neonates born to infected mothers tested positives. Teenagers are so far not produces adverse clinical outcome post COVID-19 infection like their older counterparts but it is anticipated that third phase or the wave is going to hit the teenagers harder. Preventive measures are the effective way to deal with the infection. Complacency has no place in this raging pandemic and one must remain vigilant. More study needs to be done to ensure empirical backing for all the related studies.
