Abstract

Authors’ conclusions: school closure did not have a measurable effect on the number of COVID-19 cases among children. Children were not a significant risk group for COVID-19 and they do not appear to play a very important role from the point of view of disease transmission.

Reviewers’ commentary: despite its limitations, the results are consistent with most studies that examine the transmissibility of SARS-CoV-2 infection among children, and among children and teachers, demonstrating that school closure has little impact on the number of cases in the pediatric population and mortality from COVID-19.
