Houston, Aug 11 (PTI) Children infected with the SARS-CoV-2 virus, but not hospitalised, can still experience long COVID symptoms up to three months past infection, according to a study.

The research, published in The Pediatric Infectious Disease Journal, examined data from volunteers between the ages of 5 and 18 across the state of Texas, US.

The volunteers were enrolled in the Texas CARES survey, which began in October of 2020 with the goal of assessing COVID-19 antibody status over time among a population of adults and children in Texas.
