Despite very early assumptions, children are not spared from COVID-19. However, biological and clinical responses vary considerably across the age spectrum. In this session, we will assess biologic responses to SARS-CoV-2, which will serve as a foundation for comparisons with other common respiratory viruses. We will discuss the passive transfer of maternal antibodies to infants and their clinical protection; airway signals in the upper airway in response to infection in children as compared to adults; hematologic biomarkers of severe infection in children and adults infected with SARS-CoV-2; and clinical and molecular findings in long COVID-19.

• Better understand the role and durability of passive immunity against COVID-19 and other infections in newborns
• Understand immune responses in the airway in in circulation in response to acute SARS-CoV-2 infection
• Ascertain the clinical phenotype of long COVID-19 in kids and adults and review the latest research on pathogenicity
