According to recent research published in the Nature Medicine journal, researchers took previous research that looked at infection rates and severity of symptoms and found that a wide range of symptomatic cases is linked to age. The research states that only 21% of those aged 10 - 19 years of age are likely to show any symptoms, compared to 69% of people aged over 70.

The research team then looked at whether or not reopening schools would have an impact, and the diseases spread. Due to the research suggesting that there's a decreases susceptibility in children for contracting the virus, the closure of schools might have little effect on the spread of COVID-19. Rosalind Eggo, the co-author of the study, said, "Whether to reopen schools or not is a complicated question. We've provided some evidence showing an indication of decreased (COVID-19) susceptibility in children."
