Children suffering from sickness and diarrhea, coupled with a fever or history of exposure to coronavirus, should be suspected of being infected with COVID-19, recommends a new study by doctors from Wuhan, China, who detail five cases of coronavirus in children who had no initial signs of respiratory illness. The research also suggests that the gastrointestinal symptoms first suffered by some children hints at potential infection through the digestive tract.
