How likely are children to catch and transmit COVID-19 at school?

Although transmission of SARS-CoV-2 can occur in schools, research shows that transmission in schools has accounted to a minority of all COVID-19 cases.If appropriate prevention measures are implemented in schools to reduce the spread of the virus, it is unlikely that schools will play a substantial role in transmission. Since schools are an essential part of society and children’s lives, widespread school closures should be seen as a last resort, and only considered after other measures have been put in place to contain the spread of the disease.

What is the impact of COVID-19 on an old age population?

Although all age groups are at risk of contracting COVID-19, older people face significant risk of developing severe illness if they contract the disease due to physiological changes that come with ageing and potential underlying health conditions.
