No Evidence Children drive SARS-CoV-2
According to the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control, an agency of the European Union, there is no evidence that suggests that children or educational settings are the primary drivers of SARS-CoV-2.
"No evidence has been found to suggest that children or educational settings are the primary drivers of SARS-CoV-2 virus transmission. However, research has shown that children can become infected, and can spread the virus to other children and adults while they are infectious. Children do not seem to be more susceptible to the new variant of concern for SARS-CoV-2 initially detected in the United Kingdom, which seems to be more transmissible in both children and adults."
