New Delhi: All the questions related to Corona Virus are such that the correct answer has not been found yet. In such a situation, the biggest question and concern is about the children. A question is echoing in the minds of parents of children that can the effect of corona virus on children last for a long time? Many experts believe that if the third wave of Covid-19 comes, then it can be dangerous for children. After this, this concern of the parents is absolutely justified.
The answer to the question of the long-term effect on children after being infected with Coronavirus is ‘yes’. But some studies suggest that children are less likely than adults to be affected by symptoms that persist for a month or more after infection. Estimates vary as to how often the symptoms, known as prolonged coronavirus, are seen in children.
- The study revealed
A recent study in Britain found that about four percent of young children and adolescents showed symptoms of corona more than a month after being infected. These symptoms included fatigue, headache and loss of sense of smell, and most of the symptoms disappeared after two months. Cough, chest pain, and brain fog (decreased memory or inability to concentrate) are among other chronic symptoms that sometimes occur in children, and may be associated with a mild infection or no initial symptoms. Can happen later.
- Long Covid is being discussed
Some studies have been found to be more likely to have symptoms of corona than in the UK study, but still these symptoms are considered less affected in children than in adults. According to some estimates, around 30 percent of adults develop symptoms of Covid-19 over a long period of time. Experts have not reached any concrete facts in this matter, from which it can be told that what can be the cause of the symptoms that have been present for a long time. In some cases it may show damage to organs due to the initial infection or it may be a result of virus and inflammation present in the body. Long Covid is being discussed for a long time, because many people have suffered it.
- Danger of Delta Variants
There is concern among doctors due to the rapid spread of Delta Variant, an infectious form of Corona Virus. Doctors believe that the delta variant can affect children more. Due to this, different types of symptoms can also be seen in children. In view of the children coming under the grip of Covid, the American Academy of Pediatrics has appealed to continuously show the recovered children to the doctors so that the long Covid can be dealt with.
