Coronavirus: The second wave of Corona virus has once again brought the world closer to the old state. A century ago, the second wave of Spanish flu was more dangerous than the first. You can think of the second wave as a wave in the ocean. The number of transitions goes up and then comes down. Each cycle is a ‘wave’ of the corona virus.

Doctors say that relatively unaffected with the first wave, children and adolescents now have obvious symptoms such as prolonged fever and gestrointritis.

Between March 1 and April 4, there are 79,688 children infected with the virus in five states – Maharashtra, Chhattisgarh, Punjab, Karnataka, Uttar Pradesh and Delhi.
