Experts believe that the corona 3rd wave can pose a great danger to children.
The second corona wave, which started spreading in India in mid-February last year, is causing severe damage as the world is being hit by successive waves of coronavirus infection.
While the elderly are most affected during the first wave of attacks, the second wave is more prevalent among young people and the younger generation, with young people facing more casualties as a result.
The Central Government has advised India to be ready for the 3rd wave corona spread as the second wave is still going on. Reports that the 3rd corona wave will hit children harder have caused an uproar.
Corona vaccination of people over 18 years of age is currently in progress. Unlike in the past, there is a growing awareness of the corona vaccine, which has aroused interest in all parties. Experts believe that corona 3rd wave can pose a great risk to children if they are not allowed to be vaccinated under the age of 18.
The Delhi government has already taken precautionary measures to protect children from the Corona 3rd wave.
Delhi, which has been hit hard by the second wave, is careful not to reach such a level again.
The Delhi government has set up a task force to recommend measures to protect children from the third wave.
Most of the hospitals in Delhi are preparing medicines, bed facilities and ICU beds for children as a precautionary measure.
Dr. Bharathwad, CEO, Saroj Super Specialty Hospital, Rohini, Delhi, said:
He said the two beds in the room were being kept separate and prepared to prevent the spread of infection as a child with corona would be accompanied by his family member or assistant.
We have taken steps to triple the number of pediatric ICUs, neonatal units and other pediatric wards.
We have already started purchasing oxygen masks, special ventilators and other medical equipment for babies. We also plan to hire additional pediatricians.
We are also in the process of installing oxygen generators on the hospital premises, ”said Dr. Bharathwad.
