Corona Third Wave: Do not take tension about children in the third wave, Dr Guleria explained the reason
Regarding the situation of the epidemic, Paul said that the decline in new cases is due to discipline and social behavior. He said that there is discipline at all levels of the Central and State and Local Governments. Now we will be passing through a critical phase as restrictions are gradually eased so that the cases do not increase again, so we need to follow the appropriate covid behavior.
Health Ministry’s Joint Secretary Lav Aggarwal said that there has been a decline of about 79 percent in the daily new cases since reaching the peak on May 7. With regard to the second wave of Kovid, he said that there has been a steady and rapid decline in the daily new cases.
Aggarwal said that India has 20,822 cases of corona virus per million population and 252 deaths, which is one of the lowest figures in the world. To prevent any further wave of corona in future, the government insisted on following appropriate COVID practices till the population is vaccinated.
The government also stressed the need to avoid crowded conditions for a few months. However, some states have announced relaxation in the lockdown in view of the decreasing number of new cases.
AIIMS Director Randeep Guleria said, “We need to follow appropriate COVID practices till we can say that a significant portion of our population has been vaccinated. When enough people have been vaccinated. If applied, natural immunity will develop and these waves will stop.”
He further said that there is no data or evidence to suggest that if the next wave of Kovid comes, it will affect children more.
