Covid cases remain lowest among younger children, even after schools reopened, study says
A new report from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found that Covid-19 cases among younger children remained low even after schools restarted for in-person learning. To safely reopen schools, however, transmission in communities must be kept in check.
After a number of hold-ups and delays, a team of experts from the World Health Organization (WHO) has arrived in the Chinese city of Wuhan to investigate the origin of the coronavirus pandemic.
The group of 10 scientists will quarantine for two weeks before interviewing people from research institutes, hospitals and the seafood market linked to the initial outbreak in late 2019.
China has faced criticism, notably from the US, over whether it was fully transparent when the virus first emerged there. For months now, Beijing has insisted the origins of the virus came from elsewhere.
