Abstract
Introduction: Coronavirus disease-19 (COVID-19) is a global health crisis. The clinical characteristics, disease progression and outcome in children and young adults appear significantly milder compared to older individuals.
Case series: The aim is to study the epidemiological and clinical characteristics of paediatric covid 19 patients.
All children between one month and 15 years of age who tested positive for COVID 19 infection were included in the study. Detailed information including demographic data, travel and contact history, living conditions, symptoms, and presence of comorbid conditions was taken. Baseline laboratory parameters were evaluated and repeated as required.
A total of 56 children were included in the study. The majority of the study population was from the lower middle 31 (55%) socioeconomic class. Only 12 subjects (21.42%) were symptomatic and all had mild symptoms. Neutrophil Lymphocyte-ratio (NLR) and CRP showed a significant correlation with the severity of the illness.
Conclusion: Present study shows that there is a higher disease burden in lower-socioeconomic groups with the majority of children having a positive household contact and milder disease

Key words: COVID 19, demographic data, symptoms, children
