McLaren SH, Dayan PS, Zachariah P, McCann TA, Lubell TR. Presence and Duration of Symptoms in Febrile Infants With and Without SARS-CoV-2 Infection. Pediatr Infect Dis J. 2020 Nov;39(11):e372-e374. doi: 10.1097/INF.0000000000002858. PMID: 33075219.
The clinical course of SARS-CoV-2 infection in young infants is not well understood. In this prospective cohort study, we compared the presence and duration of symptoms in febrile infants ≤60 days with (n = 7) and without (n = 16) SARS-CoV-2 infection. Overall, we observed overlapping symptoms and duration of illness, with longer length of cough and nasal congestion among the SARS-CoV-2-positive infants.
