Ahmednagar: The fast spreading corona among children in Maharashtra has created a stir. In Ahmednagar district, 9928 children have become corona positive in a month. In such a situation, the question is being asked whether the third wave has knocked.
Around 600 patients are undergoing treatment at the Kovid-19 center in Parner tehsil of Ahmednagar district. These include 28 children. Those who are between 0 and 18 years of age. Among them are 5-year-old Rajwardhan Kamale and his 3-year-old brother Harshvardhan Kamale. The father was first infected in the house and then the whole family was infected. Father works in Hinjewadi MIDC Company of Pune. When they first got fever, they got the investigation done, the report came positive and then the children started getting fever. All were tested. After the report came positive, he is undergoing treatment at this center for the last 6 days.
Four children under the age of 1 are also undergoing treatment at this center. One of these is Vedanta Nimje. Vedanta’s entire family is corona infected. Vedanta is undergoing treatment at this center for 6 days. Vedanta’s mother says that Vedanta’s fever has not subsided even after 6 days and this has raised concerns in the family.
Administration started preparations
The Ahmednagar administration has started preparations to deal with this situation. A separate board has been formed to monitor the treatment of children. Pediatric wards are being set up in 25 rural hospitals of the district. The administration says that the reason for increasing infection in children is to take part of the children in the marriage ceremony and get out of the house to play.
In the third wave, the Uddhav government, involved in planning to save children, has surprised the incident in Ahmednagar. Although infection has increased rapidly among children, the mortality rate is negligible among children.
