New Delhi: The second wave of coronavirus infection remains a disaster for India, due to which about 3.67 lakhs have lost their lives so far. The central and state governments are appealing to the people to take precautions to avoid infection. Now the speed of the second wave has slowed down, but the danger is not over yet.


Meanwhile, speculations are also being made about the third wave of Corona. At the same time, it is also being speculated that the effect of the third wave will be more on the children. A report has come out regarding the third wave, in which shocking claims have been made.


According to a report in the Lancet, a well-known journal of medical science, no concrete evidence has been found so far, on the basis of which it can be said that children are likely to be seriously infected in the third possible wave of the Covid-19 epidemic.


The Lancet COVID-19 Commission India Task Force has prepared this report after discussions with an expert group of leading Pediatric Specialists of the country to study the topic of 'Pediatric Covid-19' in India. The report claimed that similar symptoms have been found in children infected with the coronavirus in India, as seen in other countries of the world.


According to the report, most children infected with Covid-19 do not have any symptoms of this disease. Mild signs of infection have also been seen in many children. Symptoms such as fever and breathing problems have also been seen in most children after being infected with the virus. Cholera, vomiting, and other gastrointestinal symptoms related to abdominal pain are more common in children than in adults. Children around the age of adolescence are also more likely to develop symptoms of the disease.


National-level data has not been prepared regarding the number of children infected and hospitalized during the first and second wave of Covid-19 in the country. Therefore, this report has been prepared after collecting and analyzing clinical data of about 2600 children under 10 years of age admitted during this period in 10 hospitals in Tamil Nadu, Kerala, Maharashtra and Delhi-NCR region.



According to the data, the mortality rate due to Covid-19 in children below 10 years was recorded at 2.4 percent.
