                                Too weak for kindergarten and sports: Children and adolescents can also suffer from long-term consequences of a corona infection.  Two mothers talk about the search for the right treatment.

                                    That Nicole Fuchs and her family even found out that they were infected with Corona was due to Christmas.  They had invited the grandparents.  As a precaution, Fuchs' husband had himself tested on December 23.  To everyone's surprise, the result was positive.  Fuchs remained calm anyway.
