COVID-19 household transmission is high, with children being a significant source of spread, study finds

Approximately 50 percent of household members were infected from the first-infected individual during the study period. Although kids were less likely to spread the virus compared to adults, children and adults were equally likely to become infected from the first-infected individual.
