During the third wave of Covid-19, a large number of infections are spreading among children. On one hand, when people are showing symptoms of Covid-19, on the other hand, its effect has started showing in children.
Till January 14, 2022, a total of 2,64,202 new Covid cases have been registered in India. However, the process of vaccinating children has also started.
What is the reason for spreading Covid infection in Children?
Research shows that people have made the assumption that children have a better immune system and they cannot have Covid infection, but children’s immune system can also be weak.
The second reason is that children cannot be quarantined. Because it is difficult to leave them alone at this age, it increases their chances of transmitting the infection from their parents or caregivers.
How to take care of children during this time?
Common symptoms of Covid are cough, fever, shortness of breath, body aches, sore throat, fatigue, and runny nose. Fever is considered to be the most common symptom of Covid and it is necessary to get tested if this symptom is seen in children.
Parents of children should be more careful about this. If you have a small child, you should follow the safety guidelines of Covid-19 for the safety of your child. Parents should avoid going out, always wear masks, keep their surroundings clean properly.
