Bengaluru: Third wave targets children - Parents urged to get vaccinated early


Daijiworld Media Network - Bengaluru (SP)

Bengaluru, May 19: The second wave of the coronavirus pandemic has been much more savagely as compared to the first one. The country and its people are tottering under its fierce onslaught. This wave has been unlike the first wave.

Infected persons are struggling to get treatment on time. Hospitals are full and there is shortage of beds and oxygen everywhere. At the same time, coronavirus is expected to renew its attack in the form of the third wave.

Expert doctors from the city, Devi Shetty and Dr Ravi of NIMHANS have warned about the third wave of Covid. They have said that it is impossible to predict when the third wave will hit the country, but it is almost certain that it will target the children below the age of 12.

The first wave had mainly spread the infection among the elderly people. In the second wave, the disease has mostly targeted the youth. Therefore, the third way is expected to be bothering the children below 12 years of age. The virus is undergoing new mutations and coming up with new variants. These viruses enter new bodies. As already the aged people and the youth have faced the infection, they have better immunity. Therefore, the new infection may inflict miseries on the children, it is guessed.

If the children are infected, the shortage of ICU beds will reach unimaginable levels, the experts have said. If the children get infected, they cannot be let on their own in ICU wards. One of the parents will have to be with them for breast feeding etc. It is also difficult to isolate the children like the elders.

Therefore, there is an urgency for the parents to get vaccinated as early as possible. It is not safe for the parents to live in Covid rooms in the company of the children. If the parents have been vaccinated twice, they can look after the children. So far, there have not been any cases of a person who has got both the doses of the vaccine getting admitted into the ICU. This proves the efficacy of the vaccine against Covid19. Therefore, it is very much important for the parents to get vaccinated within three months from now, the doctors have said.

The Maharashtra government has already created task force for the infected children in the third wave. Companies like Pfizer and Moderna have already been conducting researches into the vaccines which suit the children who are less than 12 years old.

    Data from the world shows just like any epidemics in the initial phase the virus is more deadly and as it mutates to survive it becomes less deadly but gets more contagious. Again people up to 50 had less severe form in both the waves, kids weren't affected at all and they never will as they get cold and fevers 3 or more times in a year which is from the same family as such they are immune to corona from any mutants. Don't worry about any viruses which are 120000 to 3 lakhs as per one estimate, keep your immune system fine tuned by getting daily dose of bacteria and viruses by rejecting all the unscientific restrictions and mandates, which are based on Germ Theory of the past which has proven to be wrong. Eat healthy live healthy and stop buying marketing propaganda of our experts who are still in the past knowledge of theories which are defunct.

    Situation is really bad dear.....Rita madam. Faith in prayer and confidence in oneself alongwith positivity, are the main tools available with us. Our safety is in our hand. People also shouldn't neglect the guidelines put forward by the govt. Should behave sensibly....interior roads people are moving bindaas by two wheelers/four wheelers...young men group up around 10/15 in no.and chat. Why everytime, police should be behind them ? What young men these are ? Educated behave irresponsibly ? Where and how police also can look after ?

    Total confusion, misguidance, panic like situation who is controlling whom? PM, cabinet ministers, ML'S, MP's, CM's (cocktail situation) Does not look like going on track or well organized. This situation should not have happened. Just imagine if at at all National disaster like war breaks out how well we are prepared. Not at all like giving speeches and hammering Rahul, Nehru fly and congress party.

    My understanding is that none of the vaccines are effective. We have reached a stage where the virus is strong enough to override the immunity and kill the person even if you are vaccinated or even if you are young. strong and your immunity is perfect. A lot of incidents/deaths are similar in nature and mostly with the young who have no comorbidities. The only way to protect yourself even if you are vaccinated or not is to have a good mask, stay indoors as much as possible, avoid crowd. Even if you take a vaccine, it is effective only for 6-8 months and not beyond that. In India you will not be able get 2 dozes of vaccine in 1 year. So what is the point of having a vaccine?

    That means these vaccines have no effect at all on Mutants but still vaccination going on without being pilot tested also because of fear of virus deaths. Finally these virus shots only spread virus is the question? After vaccinating health workers there should have been atleast 3 months gap to check any side effects of these hurriedly tested emergency approved vaccines in the first place.

    Again to promote Vaccines and online businesses ? Why not pilot tested these vaccines in a city or two is the question? This is all ruthless elites and communist chinese preplanning First mild virus, then common cold / Flu or covid19 detecting RTPCR tests, so to much hype numbers for getting early hurriedy tested emergency approved vaccines. Then medium live virus in name of vaccines to deadly spread it wide and across to raise more fear to go for vaccines. Then in future stronger virus to eliminate vaccinated people with compromised immune system becuase of virus shots. All for making Billions of Dollors through vaccine and online businesses. Same time depopulation and communist control of the world using viruses and vaccines. Who's thriving only vaccine and online businesses, rest all trapped like in concentration camps in their homes.

    These experts are saying like this Virus is there to take revenge ? 1st wave for adults, 2nd one for teenagers & 3rd one for children... strange. Experts opinion this is because 1st & 2nd already covered adults & teenagers... so remaining only children. But we have been seeing Covid can effect 1 person many times.

    Mutated Covid19 virus, has steadily spread its tentacles and now even children are falling prey to this plague... Earlier evil netas had cast aspirations, ridiculing our technocrats, name calling as a BJP vaccine causing impotency. The fear in the minds of the public have subsided, after the horrific second wave... Rural India is now in a severe grip of this fatal infection... With no health care infrastructures, More then 4800 deaths were reported yesterday... Availability of this vaccine to every citizen must be ensured.... We need to quickly acquire " Herd immunity " like the western nations, at the earliest... This endless Lockdown is causing havoc in our society !!!

    Clearly you are out of touch with reality. Forget children even those above 45 can't get vaccine. Also India is the world's largest vaccine manufacturer with innumerable manufacturers capable of producing covaxin yet no permission from govt. Why are we waiting for western rna baded vaccine for which we don't even have technology to produce.

    @ sahil The bio weapon created by china inside Wuhan lab secretly since years through bats for defensive purpose in case of WWW III was systematically designed how it should infect, mode of travel ..etc it's only later all 8 workers were executed by govt to cover up the secret. that's the reason china has very less diplomatic support from several countries as of now.

    It’s mentioned in the article that people who got both doses of the vaccine never got admitted into the ICU. This is not true at all. Quite a few doctors and healthcare workers across India who got both doses have been badly infected ,admitted to ICUs and even died . Latest example being renowned physician in Delhi Dr KK Agarwal.

    According to Indian Medical Association more than 1000 doctors have died due to Covid more than 50% after 2 doses of vaccination. Different state Govt. had promised 50 lakh to 1 Crore compensation and increase wages which were never paid- rubbing salt to wound.
