Jamshedpur 6th June 2021: During the first phase of the pandemic in 2020, all 843 children were affected by Covid. But in the second phase, the number of Covid-infected children has gone up to 1,290.
Children have been attacked more in the second wave of Covid-19, which corresponded to the last one.
Pediatricians across the city say that the impacts of the virus on children have changed.
One reason for increased virality in children may be that the elderly have gotten vaccinated.
Additionally, a lot of young people were infected by the virus.
An official said that the mutated virus also is a reason for increased cases in children. Most children don’t need intensive treatment, and that the symptoms are constant from the last wave.
The common symptoms in children are diarrhea, vomiting, high fever, and cold with Covid this time.
Additional signs are rashes, stomach aches, irritability, and unusual sleepiness.
Since the treatment is symptomatic for all Covid patients,
Early diagnosis helps improve the chance of getting well since the treatment is symptomatic for all Covid patients.
If any of the symptoms are showing, then one must not delay getting an RT-PCR.
However, in some cases, a multisystem inflammatory syndrome in children (MIS-C) can happen.
“The impact of the virus is reducing, but we need to be careful. If we remain serious about the protocols, the virus will further reduce significantly,” an official said.
