Children are in the grip of second wave
Children were rarely affected in the first wave of Corona, but the second wave has wreaked havoc on children below the age of 18 years. By the way, this time most of the children did not show any symptoms after getting infected and they also recovered sooner than the adults.
In some cases, children may develop acute infection after recovering from corona, which can increase the risk of long covid in them. Experts say that there is no problem due to infection, but for children, long-lasting symptoms after corona are more dangerous.
The Indian Academy of Pediatrics has sent a report to the Central Government, which states that children are more at risk not of corona but from its after effects.
