Review finds children half as likely to catch coronavirus as adults

According to a systematic review of 6,332 studies (18 with useful data), led by UCL and the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, those aged under 18-20 years were 56% less likely than an adult (aged over 20 years) to catch Covid-19 when exposed to an infected person.

SPS commentary:

The findings are awaiting peer review and formal publication.
