Corona pandemic effect on children: The second wave of the corona epidemic is not leaving anyone. Not even leaving the kids. It is also attacking children. This puts a lot of stress on the parents. Children in the corona second wave are also becoming increasingly vulnerable to the pandemic. Mostly attacks people between the ages of 10 and 15. Mild symptoms are seen in people aged 1-8 years.
Pandemic effect on children Without symptoms in the first wave
However, even though children were infected with corona last year, the incidence of coronary heart disease did not come out as they had no symptoms. Medical experts say they have no chance of knowing when Corona came to them or when they left. Last year, 1 percent of young children were infected with the corona, this time 1.2 percent. Although it looks low in percentages. It seems to be very high. Doctors reveal that the government has not released any official statistics regarding corona in children.
Is it due to the double mutant?
Medical experts believe that corona is a double mutant that causes corona infection in children in the second wave. The virus has the ability to spread quickly as well as weaken the immune system. This makes the virus more easily transmitted to children. Dr. Jayadev Ray, a pediatrician from Kolkata, said that most children with MISC (Multi-System Inflammatory Syndrome in Children) come to them within two to four weeks after the corona is reduced. He also revealed that 40-50 percent of children infected with Kovid suffer from gastric problems.
However, there is currently no vaccine for children. Last week, Pfizer of the United States revealed that their vaccine works effectively on 12- to 15-year-olds as well. Also, Hyderabad-based Bharat Biotech had sought permission to conduct experiments on people between the ages of 5 and 18, but the Central Government did not allow it as it did not submit adequate statistics.
