COMMON SYMPTOMS IN CHILDREN WHO TESTED POSITIVE FOR COVID 
 
From further research, Tim Spector, Professor of Genetics at King's College London states that Covid presents itself differently in children than in adults. 
 
The top 5 symptoms in school aged children who have tested positive for Covid are:
  • fatigue (55%)
  • headache (53%)
  • fever (49%)
  • sore throat (38%) and 
  • loss of appetite 
Researchers also found that 1 in 6 children with Covid also presented with an unusual rash.
