With staged unlocking, physical opening of classes and schools is not distant. There is an urgent need to revise all salient points of this infection in children. Infection spreads mainly via droplets, fomites and contact with infected surfaces even though feco-oral route of transmission has also been reported. Majority of cases are asymptomatic or have mild illness. Children who have been diagnosed as positive usually have familial clustering. A positive history of exposure and clinical symptoms are more helpful for screening. Confirmation of the diagnosis is on the basis of a positive RT-PCR. Most common symptoms having been reported are fever and cough. Complete blood counts are suggestive of leucopenia with relative lymphopenia. Management of COVID 19 in children is primarily supportive. Prevention is the key to successful outcome in patients with COVID-19
