Coronavirus: A leading Belgian virologist warns of 'very dangerous' effects of COVID-19 on children.

The father of a four-year-old Belgian boy who spent six days in a coma after catching COVID-19 has warned other parents of the risk the virus poses to children.

After posting photos of his son Kais in hospital, Gregory Chaudy told Sky News he never imagined his son had contracted coronavirus when he took him there with a temperature.

Doctors initially sent him home - but within days, the little boy had developed blotches on his skin and tested positive for the virus.

A leading virologist in Belgium told Sky News that a national lockdown is needed urgently, to take control of the pandemic there.
