Children carried COVID-19 home from Utah childcare centers, infecting family members -U.S. report

Sept 11 (Reuters) – Twelve children who likely contracted COVID-19 at three childcare operations in Utah infected some of their parents and siblings, according to a U.S. study, adding to evidence that very young kids can transmit the disease.

From the 12 documented cases acquired at the childcare facilities, virus transmission was found among at least 12 of 46 non-facility contacts, such as parents – one of whom required hospitalization – siblings and an aunt.
