Researchers analyzed data from China, Japan, Italy, Singapore, Canada and South Korea and concluded that younger people appear less likely to develop COVID-19 after contact with an infected person and could have less severe illness, CNN reported.
They said that clinical symptoms of COVID-19 develop in about 21% of those ages 10-19, compared with about 69% of those 70 and older.
The study by researchers at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine in the U.K. was published in the journal Nature Medicine.
