Japan: High mortality rate reported in children
According to some reports from Japan in December 2022, there was an increased risk of infection and death in children due to Omicron variants. According to the report, the number of people who died of Kovid-19 under the age of 20 was only three at the end of the year 2021, although this figure increased to 41 in the first eight months of 2022. Health experts said that along with children, the danger also remains for those whose immune system is weak or who have not been vaccinated.
Apart from this, most studies of corona have been telling that the risk of infection and serious disease is less in children, although they may definitely increase the risk of spreading. In view of this danger, safety measures are very important for children as well.
