What is it about?

Why is it important?

A significant percentage of children developed long COVID after COVID‐19 pneumonia.


We should give additional attention to those who have exercise intolerance, chronic cough, or fatigue, especially older children, severe cases, children with allergic diseases, and those living in polluted areas.
