What is the impact of coronavirus infection on children population? Basically their immunity levels are low and how this infection can be managed?

No, there is no evidence that children are more susceptible. In fact, most confirmed cases of COVID-19 reported from China have occurred in adults.

Disease in children appears to be relatively rare and mild. A large study from China suggested that just over 2% of cases were under 18 years of age. Of these, fewer than 3% developed severe or critical disease.

According to the current datas only 0.2 % deaths occurred in the age group of 10 to 19 Years

No deaths were reported with the age group of than 10 Years of age
