"While COVID in children has generally been milder than in adults, there are
concerns long COVID may be a major consequence for children and young people
arising from the pandemic.

Long COVID, also known as “post-COVID condition” is an umbrella term for a
range of symptoms that can persist for months after the initial acute phase of
COVID. Long COVID may include fatigue, post-exertional malaise, disordered
sleep, cognitive difficulties, pain, anxiety and depression. These symptoms can
impact people of any age, including children.

Recognition and support from health-care professionals is important in
recovering from long COVID. Identifying it early and implementing management
strategies can prevent symptoms becoming entrenched, and prevent more
significant problems in the future."
