CHANGES IN REVERSE TRANSCRIPTION POLYMERASE CHAIN REACTION–POSITIVE SEVERE ACUTE RESPIRATORY SYNDROME CORONAVIRUS 2 RATES IN ADULTS AND CHILDREN ACCORDING TO THE EPIDEMIC STAGES

Abstract : From March 2, 2020, to April 26, 2020, 52,588 reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) tests for severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) were performed in France, 6490 in children and 46,098 in adults. The rate of RT-PCR-positive SARS-CoV-2 tests for children (5.9%) was always less than that for adults (20.3%) but vary according to the epidemic stage. The risk ratio of RT-PCR-positive SARS-CoV-2 tests for adults compared with children was 3.5 (95% confidence interval: 3.2-3.9) for the whole study period.
