Study: More children infected than anticipated | COVID-19 Special

DW News published this video item, entitled “Study: More children infected than anticipated | COVID-19 Special” – below is their description.

Children are generally not considered to be driving the spread of the coronavirus. But researchers in Munich analyzed blood samples from 12,000 children – and what they found has them worried. Six times as many of the samples from the children tested positive came as a surprise to Professor Ziegler, who headed the study. She thinks that in many cases the children only had mild symptoms or none at all, so the infection wasn’t detected.
