Dr. Smita told that the corona virus is repeatedly changing its form to maintain its existence. He said that after the third wave of coronavirus in the country, the fourth wave can also come.
How dangerous will the third wave be for children
The second wave of coronavirus engulfed densely populated cities as well as sparsely populated villages. However, there is a lack of new cases coming out in many states of the country. Despite this shortage, more than one lakh new cases are coming daily in the country and more than 2 thousand people are also dying. When the second wave of corona virus was at its peak in the country, at the same time the experts had also warned of the third wave of the epidemic. According to experts, the third wave of COVID-19 will have a bad effect on young children. After the warnings of the third wave were issued by the experts, along with the central government, the state governments have also started preparations.
After the third wave, the fourth wave may also come.
Dr. Smita Malhotra, an experienced pediatrician working at Apollo Hospital, Delhi, had an exclusive conversation with NewsNCR on how to keep children safe in the third wave of Corona. Dr. Smita told that the corona virus is repeatedly changing its form to maintain its existence. He said that after the third wave of coronavirus in the country, the fourth wave can also come. He said that in view of the warning issued regarding the epidemic, we should be prepared and alert. Doctor Smita has considered the vaccine as an important weapon in this ongoing fight against Corona. He told that we can overcome this epidemic only through vaccination on a large scale.
It is better to be prepared and careful than to worry about children.
Dr. Smita Malhotra said about the third wave of corona on children that instead of creating an atmosphere of fear, we should prepare for it. According to Dr. Smita, it may also happen that in the third wave, children are not affected as badly as it is expected. Referring to the current data, he said that the impact of the disease in children is less and the effect of serious illness is even less. He said that only 5 percent of the children who get infected have seen serious illness. Let us tell you that many children have also lost their lives in the second wave. Overall, Dr. Smita wants to tell that there is no solution to create more panic and fear about the children about the third wave, for this we have to be fully prepared and careful from our side.
