Children produce fewer Covid-19 antibodies than adults: study

Nov 06, 2020 10:55 IST

Children produce weaker antibodies of Covid-19, according to a new study published in the journal Nature Immunology, led by researchers from Columbia University. This can explain why in most cases, children do not get severely infected with the deadly virus and have fewer chances of spreading it. The study also found that children produce fewer kinds of antibodies than adults do. Experts however said that this does not mean that children are at a higher risk of getting re-infected with the virus.
