COVIDcast Episode 3: The Kids Are Alright*
Nuvyn Peters chats with Dr. Stephen Freedman, professor of Paediatrics and Emergency Medicine at UCalgary's Cumming School of Medicine, and lead researcher of a global study to improve the diagnosis and treatment of COVID-19 in children. Why are children seemingly unharmed by coronavirus? Can COVID-19 spread from pets? Can the virus pass from mother to baby? What should parents do if they suspect their child is infected? We explore these questions and more, as Dr. Freedman offers tips, guidance and advice to help parents navigate our new reality.
