Hundreds of children in Pakistan infected with Covid

More than 900 children under the age of 10 have so far tested positive for the new coronavirus in Pakistan’s southern Sindh province, as the country considers reimposing a nationwide lockdown to prevent the spread of the contagion.

I don’t get this. We’ve been told there’s more chance of a young child being struck by lightning than catching covid. Is it an excuse to reimpose lockdown? Or are kids everywhere positive with it but asymptomatic? Which means they’ll e spreading it like wildfire one the schools go back.
