Abstract

Aim The COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic has spread throughout the world in a short period of time and has caused the death of more than 2 million people to date. Although in severe cases the infection mainly progresses as a serious pulmonary disease such as pneumonia or acute respiratory distress syndrome, numerous extrapulmonary manifestations have been described due to systemic hyperinflammation associated with COVID-19. The purpose of the study is to study the health status of children who have suffered different clinical forms of coronavirus infection

Material and Method 105 children of different ages who had COVID-19 in July 2021 – February 2022 were examined.

Results According to the results of the studies, the highest level of Covid-19 infection among children was observed in June-July 2021. 105 children of different ages took part in the study. Among them, it was observed that in preschool children 26.7% (28) and school-age children the disease was acute and severe in 54.3% (57), since in young and young children the disease was mild without noticeable clinical signs in 19% (20). Post-Covid syndrome in school-age children was accompanied by disturbances in the autonomic (n-21), emotional-behavioral and cognitive spheres (n-7). Other most frequent changes in the health status of children after SARS-CoV-2 infection were identified: a 2-fold increase in episodes of acute respiratory disease in children and an exacerbation of chronic pathology of the ENT organs were noted. Symptoms of this condition ranged from mild functional impairment (n-10) to severe pathology - chronic kidney disease (n-3), pulmonary hypertension (n-5), diabetes mellitus (n-3) and which can lead to disability.

Conclusions Coronavirus infection COVID-19 causes a decrease in the level of health and development of children, the development of multisystem diseases, and a doubling of upper respiratory tract diseases.
