Abstract

The dynamics of intrafamilial spread of SARS-CoV-2 during January-February 2021 when variant B.1.1.7 predominated were compared with data from April to May 2020, when other circulating variants prevailed. Much higher intrafamilial transmission rates among all age groups, in particular in young children, and lower rates of sensory impairment were demonstrated during January-February 2021.
