[Correspondence] Did Ebola relatively spare children?

In her Correspondence, Judith R Glynn,1 as others before,2 reports lower incidence of Ebola among children than among adults. This finding might result from age-related biases in Ebola surveillance. Ebola cases are reported through clinical care, contact tracing, or burial records. Paediatric cases (especially in children aged younger than 5 years) are more likely to be missed by this system than are adult cases. First, children aged younger than 5 years die from Ebola more frequently and faster than adults.
