Anurag Agarwal, director of CSIR Institute of Genomics and Integrative Biology, said on Friday that there has always been a risk of infection in children. India's figures show that children have been infected at almost the same rate as adults. However, the risk of serious illness in children will remain low.

Impact on the healthcare system is expected to be minimal

Anurag Aggarwal further said that according to the number of cases of infection in the third wave of corona, it will definitely come, but its impact on the healthcare system is expected to be minimal. He said that at present people with good immunity are those with hybrid immunity. A large part of the country's population falls in this category.

Part of the country is still left with the first dose of the vaccine

Aggarwal said that if we look at the new variant Omicron of Kovid-19, then it gets all the things that make it such a variant and it is capable of bringing the third wave. He said that whatever data we are seeing about Omicron, it shows that it has a great feature of protecting the body's immunity. He said that a part of the country is still left with the first dose of the vaccine. In such a situation, we have to vaccinate them at all costs. Along with this, to ensure the safety of health workers, they should be given a booster dose of anti-corona vaccine.
