Rising Trend Of Virus – Panic Among Younger Children 

All over the world has gripped under this virulent virus named Covid 19, where a deadly variant delta had stepped down their feet for some time before being surpassed by a new variant Omicron. Until now, the data we have received suggests that this new variant is less severe than the delta one but spreads very rapidly. The shocking data has been obtained from the Disease control center. The latest variant of the virus has primarily affected the younger children of society, specifically under the age of 5 years or less. The children between 5 to 17 have been relatively less affected, and the hospitalization rate has been stabilized.

There is a misrepresentation of data in which those generally admitting to the virus and those who have problems other than the virus have mixed, creating the data high and skeptical.

The rapid spread of this virus makes hospitalization an upsurge; otherwise, severity wise it has become less harmful. After discussing with some doctors and pediatricians, we found that those getting admitted due to a virus surge are not in a panic situation. Their symptoms are less severe and could be treated with a general check-up. Children who are infected under a particular age need to be undertaken by experts, and their oxygen level, hydration, and daily B.P have been monitored.

Symptoms are severe in children who have prior comorbidities or have diseases like Obesity, hypertension, diabetes, and something related to heart problems. The virus can enter these weak children because of the immune escape and make it difficult to breathe. 

An antibody is probably not going to be an option at any point shortly because clinical preliminaries are as yet in the works. In any case, the truth will eventually surface what’s in store from the Omicron variant. Regardless of whether it is less hazardous than earlier strains, the sheer number of cases will bring about many physical issues and misfortune. Until further notice, kids under 5 are vulnerable, mainly while hanging tight antibodies at this age.

Suppose we talk about the first wave of this covid 19 virus, which proved to be very dangerous for older people and those with weaker immune systems. At that time, the wreck havoc has been created by the virus surge, and hospitals have been filled with infective patients, but this we are more precautionary, and this wave becomes less severe. All we need to do is maintain hygiene and maintain the social distance properly.

Assuming the danger of getting the infection has expanded, regardless of whether kids are by and large less powerless to extreme results from that disease, that modest number of kids who might regularly have been hospitalized because of COVID increments.

At this early phase in the Omicron wave, experts are still learning about its unique systems and their meaning for patients. Notwithstanding, the proof is mounting that this specific type of COVID-19 focuses its assault on the throat. Different variants, like Delta,  dropped down the respiratory level and ruined the lungs. With previous COVID-19 variants, the course of severe disease is regularly drawn out, and the issues usually start once the infection arrives at the lungs. Although Youngsters have high energy and more robust immune systems than adolescents and older, they will be more resistant to the virus. If any surge happens in the future, it will only cause mild infection, which will treat wisely and some standard treatment.
