What parents need to know about coronavirus (COVID-19)

It is important not to panic. Novel coronavirus (COVID-19) appears to generally cause mild illness in children. Less than two in every 100 cases diagnosed in China have been in children and infection appears to be milder in children than it is in adults, although we do not yet understand exactly why this is the case.
