Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) viral load kinetics in symptomatic children, adolescents, and adults

Abstract

SARS-CoV-2 viral load (VL) can serve as a correlate for infectious virus presence and transmission. Viral shedding kinetics over the first week of illness for symptomatic children (n = 279), adolescents (n = 639), and adults (n = 7109) show VLs compatible with infectious virus presence, with slightly lower VL in children than adults.
