BEIJING, CHINA - MARCH 24: A Chinese boy pushes his sister on a a luggage cart as they wear protective masks, sunglasses and raincoats after arriving on a flight at Beijing Capital International Airport on March 24, 2020 in Beijing, China. In an effort to prevent imported cases of the virus, China's capital will enforce stronger restrictions on incoming arrivals as of midnight on March 25, 2020 and all international flights will be diverted to other cities in the country where passengers will be tested and then proceed on domestic flights to Beijing where they will do a mandatory quarantine of 14 days. With the pandemic hitting hard across the world, China recorded its first day with no new domestic cases of the coronavirus last week, since the government imposed sweeping measures to keep the disease from spreading. For two months, millions of people across China have been restricted in how they move from their homes, while other cities have been locked down in ways that appeared severe at the time but are now being replicated in other countries trying to contain the virus. Officials believe the worst appears to be over in China, though there are concerns of another wave of infections as the government attempts to reboot the world's second largest economy.

Study Confirms Coronavirus Not as Harmful to Children Although a handful of juvenile cases have led some to question initial findings, a new study has confirmed the coronavirus generally doesn’t cause severe reactions in children.

A report published Monday by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says while infected kids experience fever, shortness of breath and coughing, the symptoms are usually far less serious than they are in adults.

The report also indicates one in five infected children are hospitalized, compared to one in three adults. That’s not to say children are invincible from the virus. Of 150,000 confirmed cases that were examined for the study, about 2,500 — or 2 percent — were kids.

Three of them died, the study indicates. Why were schools among the first places to get shut down?
