More than 1 million children in the United States (US) have been infected with the Covid-19. This information has been reported from the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and the Children’s Hospital.
The second phase of coronavirus infection, which began last March, is spreading widely in the United States.
In the week before November 12, more than one lakh children have been diagnosed with Covid-19 infection in the country. Health workers have expressed concern about this.
Dr. Sally Goza, president of the American Academy of Pediatrics and the Children says she has been working as a pediatrician for three decades. She is concerned about Covid-19 affecting minors.
Pediatricians say many of the children do not have coronavirus symptoms. Due to this, coronavirus infection is spreading through them unknowingly.
Dr. Sally Goza said steps must be taken to control the virus across the country on an urgent basis. For this, she emphasized making it compulsory instead of wearing masks and maintaining social distance.
The general public in the United States has many doubts about the vaccine. Health workers have to get up to speed to persuade a large section of the marginalized population to get vaccinated.
Generally, one in five minors cannot be vaccinated. So Shelly Gaja thinks that the use of vaccines in minors must be ensured.
