How to Protect Your Child From 3rd Wave of Covid

Sep 08, 2021, 2:30 pm - 3:25 pm

Children can be susceptible to the third wave of Covid-19, largely because they are not vaccinated. It is important for parents to take utmost care of their children. This can be done by strictly following important precautionary steps.

The most common symptoms of coronavirus are cough, fever or chills, fatigue, shortness of breath or difficulty in breathing, chest pain, muscle pain, body ache, loss of smell or taste, headache, sore throat, congestion or runny nose, diarrhoea, nausea or vomiting, abdominal discomfort, skin rashes, confusion.  

 The symptoms of Coronavirus can appear anywhere between 2 to 14 days after the exposure to the virus. While some individuals may not have any symptoms and still be COVID POSITIVE.

Children who are at risk include:

Those under 2 years of age

Children born prematurely

Obese children

Children with an underlying condition such as chronic respiratory illness, including asthma, diabetes or cancer. 

Here’s how you can protect your children from covid-19.

 

- You should disinfect all the frequently touched surfaces.

- Make sure your child eats a well-balanced diet, and avoid spicy, oily and junk food.

- Do not take your child to crowded places.

- Make sure your child is not around sick people. Also if your child is sick, do not send them out.

- Keep the house well ventilated.

If your child gets infected, check his/her temperature from time to time, and be in close consultation to the doctor. Give plenty of oral fluids and hygienic food to your child.

Hi doctor! It is said that third wave affects most of the children. I keep my kids Indoors all day. I ensure frequent washing of hands and maintaning social distance whenever I take them out. I also give foods that boost immunity. What else should I do to protect my children from the 3rd wave?

Namastey Doctor! When can we expect the children to be vaccinated? Will the vaccine be effective in fighting with COVID-19? Is it safe to send children to school prior to Vaccination?

Sir why are children at lesser risk than adults, although their immunity level is not that high as compared to adults? My daughter is 4 years and she doens't have a sound sleep at night. Can this affect her immunity? How can I make her sleep well at night?

Is it safe to send the kids to school in case the schools reopen?... considering they have not been vaccinated yet... Wouldn't it be unsafe because kids are not so used to following all the protocols.
