Listen to the news
He said that the symptoms of corona in children are usually asymptomatic. They often get infections but their symptoms are minimal or zero. Infection in children has not taken a serious form. But this does not mean that we take it lightly. We need to keep an eye on it. He said that the virus is ever changing its form and nature due to which there is a danger in children and it can increase its effect in children at any time, so we are preparing from our level.
He said that the symptoms of corona have been found in children in two ways – firstly, pneumonia-like symptoms have occurred in them. In another, some cases of multi-inflammatory syndrome have been found in children recovering from corona. Statistics have shown that a small number of children are being admitted to hospitals, but still we need to be vigilant.
Can’t say anything about the mixture of Kovid 19 vaccine right now: Dr. VK Paul
Replying to a mixture of Kovid vaccine, Doctor VK Paul said that there is no protocol on it at this time. Currently the same type of vaccines are to be given for both doses. We need to focus on the government’s SOP. Paul said that international research on vaccine mixtures is underway as the potential for positive effects is also plausible, but the detrimental response cannot be ruled out. This is an unresolved scientific question and science will solve it.
