The spectre of a third wave of Covid-19 has been haunting everyone’s minds. Many states have begun planning and even putting in place infrastructure. The focus is on children, with apprehension that they could be the worst affected. States are concentrating hard on paediatric Covid care. Many have ramped up paediatric beds, prioritised vaccines for parents of kids below 12 yrs and formulated children-specific protocols. Most states are adding beds for paediatric Covid care, including PICU, NICU and SNCU. The steps accompany other measures like setting up oxygen plants and establishing more testing labs.
