One year after SarsCoV2 infection, 35.8% of unvaccinated people no longer have detectable antibodies. This occurs in only 2.1% of vaccinated people. This is what emerges from a research conducted on over a thousand people by the Barcelona Institute for Global and published on BMC medicine. “Our data underscores the importance of vaccinating people even if they have previously been infected and confirms that hybrid immunity is superior and longer lasting,” said study first signer Marianna Karachaliou.

There have been 4.5 million cases of Covid-19 in Italy among children and young people aged 0 to 19, 22,798 required hospitalization, 509 intensive hospitalization and 73 died. The impact of the pandemic was therefore “relevant even for the youngest and the data show that it was different between males and females”, whether we consider the severe forms, long Covid, the risk of severe Multisystem Inflammatory Syndrome or the consequences indirect. To describe it through 4 different aspects, is an analysis of the scientific literature, presented at the Congress of the International Society of Gender Medicine, held in Padua. First of all, “severe forms do not affect males and females equally,” explains Danilo Buonsenso, professor of Pediatrics at the Catholic University of Rome and researcher at the Gemelli Irccs Polyclinic Foundation. This is confirmed, among others, by a study on Jama Network Open (February 2022): out of 167,762 pediatric Covid cases, severe forms were in 56% of cases affecting boys (791) compared to 44% of girls (631). The second aspect concerns a serious complication linked to Sars-COV-2 infections in children, the Severe Multisystem Inflammatory Syndrome (MIS-C). A work on Jama examined data from 77,416 pediatric cases: 291 children had developed MIS-C, of ​​which 59% were male and 41% female.

The third aspect concerns the possibility of developing Long Covid. A study by the Gemelli Polyclinic analyzed what was reported by 679 children under the age of 18. «There are no different levels of risk – he explains – but the type of symptoms reported is different between the two genders: females complain more of asthenia, headache, insomnia; children, on the other hand, have intestinal disorders, respiratory problems, difficulties in social life ». The fourth aspect concerns the indirect effects of Covid-19. “As in women, the effects of the pandemic have also been catastrophic for girls, especially in low-income countries”, observes Buonsenso, “from the increase in domestic violence to a decrease in access to education.”
