Abstract

The Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) caused by the Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) has spread globally, becoming a long-lasting pandemic [1,2,3]. As is so often the case for infectious diseases, vulnerable communities are likely to demonstrate the worse effects and this holds true for COVID-19 in Latin America [4]. Early in the pandemic, it was believed that COVID-19 did not significantly affect children. However, since the first confirmed pediatric case of COVID-19 was reported in Shenzhen, China, many cases have been reported and studied in pediatric patients [5]. It is now known that COVID-19 can affect children of all ages [6,7,8,9]. Although in many settings children usually have a lower risk of exposure and are tested less frequently than adults, the incidence in some countries in children is similar to that in adults [10].
