Pediatrician and Director of Iashvili Children Hospital Ivane Chkaidze said that children who catch coronavirus show symptoms that are different from those of adult patients.
In Chkaidze's words, around 3% of children who suffer from obesity or chronic diseases face coronavirus complications and are hospitalized. As the pediatrician says, unlike adults, children rarely lose smell and taste; however, they suffer from stomach disorders or pain, nausea, fatigue, and loss of appetite more frequently.
According to Chkaidze, as many as 42 underage patients were admitted to the hospital in a month. "The number of these patients is increasing, and this is not surprising in the slightest, as lots of children are infected with coronavirus in the country today," he said.
