Covid In Children: Are we among the third wave of Corona? Infection in children?- The third wave of the Covid-19 pandemic is expected in the country, but with reports coming from Delhi and Karnataka, it seems that we may not be in the midst of the third wave.

Coronavirus Attack on Children: The third wave of the Covid-19 pandemic is being feared in the country, but reports coming from Delhi and Karnataka make it seem that we may not be in the midst of the third wave. Actually, it is being said that in the third wave, the coronavirus attack will happen to most children. In such a situation, the question arises that what is indicated by the children admitted in Delhi’s LNJP Hospital four times as compared to the previous wave? On the other hand, in Karnataka also the number of infected children has increased by 143% in the last two months. These children are under 9 years old.

In the last two months, 29 Covid afflicted children aged between 8 and 15 years were admitted to the Lok Nayak Jayaprakash (LNJP) Hospital in Delhi. Of these, three children needed oxygen support, whereas, during the third wave of corona that occurred in Delhi last year, only 7 to 8 children were admitted to the LNJP. Experts are trying to find out that since the fourth corona wave of Delhi has got more people than the third, then the number of infected children has also increased in proportion to the same or whether the fourth wave may prove more dangerous for children. Used to be?

How about Karnataka?

The fears of the latest wave of Corona having more impact on children are deeper than the figures in Karnataka. From March 18 to May 18, 39,846 children aged 9 to 10 years and 1,05,044 teenagers aged 10 to 19 were found corona positive. It should be noted that from the beginning of the epidemic till March 18 of this year, the total number of infected children in Karnataka up to the age of 9 years was 27,841 while the number of infected teenagers aged 10 to 19 was 65,551.

These figures are worrying

Similarly, the number of infected children increased by 143% compared to the first wave, while the number of juveniles increased by 160%. It is clear from these figures that the second wave of Corona is overshadowing children and adolescents of Karnataka. As far as deaths of corona-infected children and adolescents in Karnataka are concerned, by March 18, 2021, a total of 28 infected children and 46 teenagers had succumbed. Between March 18 and May 18, the figure is 15 and 62 respectively.
