Amidst the looming danger of the third wave of Corona, Dr Praveen said – this epidemic will affect children
National Desk: The second wave of corona infection in the country may have weakened, but the fear of the third wave in front is standing out. It is difficult to predict exactly when this wave will come, but doctors and experts believe that the third wave can prove to be very dangerous for children. On the other hand, Dr Praveen Kumar, Director, Department of Pediatrics, Medical College, New Delhi, said that if there is a third wave of corona in the future, it will affect children.
Speaking on the impact of COVID-19 on children, Dr Kumar said that the pandemic can have a serious impact on the mental and physical health of children. Such as home confinement, illness in the family and stress of job loss for parents or financial. He said that some may remain silent due to this pandemic while others may express anger and hyperactivity. He said that if the data of corona infection during the first and second wave and the data of sero survey are seen together, then it can be said that 40 percent of the children in India have been exposed to the corona virus.
AIIMS Chief Guleria said - India's children have strong immunity
At the same time, before this, a big statement of AIIMS Director Dr Randeep Guleria had come. Dr Randeep Guleria had said that the country should consider reopening the schools once. In an interaction with India Today, Dr Guleria said that India's children have a very strong immunity and I think we should agree to reopen schools. Dr Guleria said that I am talking about opening schools in those districts where the cases of corona have reduced significantly. Guleria said that this plan can be made for places with a positivity rate of less than 5 percent. However, he also said that if there are signs of spreading the infection again, then the schools can be closed immediately. But before that, the opening of schools must be considered.
