Centre issues New Covid Guidelines for children amid the fear of the third wave

Union Health Ministry has issued clinical guidelines in a detailed document titled A comprehensive management of covid-19 treatment in children, where below the age of 18 years may get affected by the virus in the third wave. The document also says that the antiviral drug Remdesivir is not recommended for children and the steroids can be used for mild cases and critically ill patients of COVID-19 and should be used at the right time, in the right dose, that too only in hospital settings. The procedure cannot be done in the home as it will be harmful to the children.
