Answer

Recommendations for supportive care for children with coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) are similar to those for adults. Among the recommendations are bed rest and ensuring sufficient calorie and water intake. Oxygen therapy is recommended for patients with hypoxia. Antibiotics should generally be reserved for children with bacterial co-infection. [41]
