Thus far, very few children have been affected by the Coronavirus. Most of the cases in China have been to middle-aged and older people, especially males. As of now, not a single child has died from the Coronavirus. 

Furthermore, the mortality rate of the Coronavirus seems to be about 2% and as milder cases occur this rate may drop further.

We encourage all of our patients to stay up to date by visiting the direct CDC website linked below.
