We are pleased to invite you to our webinar on “COVID-19 in Children: Considerations on the Current Situation” on April 6, 2021 from 3 – 4 PM CEST.

This webinar is free and open to everyone. If you wish to attend, please register here.

After a year of living with the pandemic and studying the effects of COVID-19 on adults, we feel the need to shift our focus towards children. Research states that children are less susceptible to SARS-COV-2 infection, have a lower seroprevalence and a less severe form of COVID-19. However, the challenges of COVID-19 diagnoses in children are different from those in adults.

We will discuss the implications that come with differential diagnosis, the role that children play in the spread of the infection, presentation of severe cases as well as vaccination and testing with 4 experts from France, Spain, Italy and Israel.
