Goa must prioritize breastfeeding mothers who have children under two years among the age group 18-45 years with the aim of protecting mothers and children towards the third wave of potential Pandemic Covid-19, an expert committee has recommended to the government.

“Mothers who are troublesome not in the category of people who are recommended for vaccinated, but now we know it is clearly a positive [thing] to vaccinate all nursing mothers because they will continue antibodies to babies and also in a position to handle babies, if God Prohibiting children tend to be a positive covid later. So this is one age group that we recommend for the task force to present the priority basis, “said Dr. Harshad Kamat, a member of the expert committee.

The Doctor Expert Committee of the Government and the Private Sector, established to advise the government in the third wave, also recommend that those who suffer from ko-morbidity are associated with kidneys, liver and diabetes are also prioritized for vaccination in 18- 44 age groups.

“We have asked DHS that two groups must be given a priority for vaccination in the age group 18-44: breastfeeding mothers (whose children are less than 2 years old) and those who suffer from diabetes or kidney failure in 18- 44 age groups because they can Develop severe symptoms, “Dr. Jagdish Cacodcar is also a member of the assignment, said.

The expert group anticipates that the third wave that speculates a pandemic can arrive around September and has an impact on the proportion of larger children. While group recommendations are in line with several individual experts who say that the potential of the third wave of the disease can affect more children, the main scientific advisers of the central government K Vijay Raghavan have earlier this month saying that the next wave will not occur evenly in every place if adequate prevention measures Taken.

“We saw that last year, 7-8% of positive children and crossed the last three months, around 8-12% were infected with children under the age of 18. So the percentage rose. What in one digit [during the first wave ] It has reached 11-12%. The same thing is a pattern throughout India because those under 20 years consisting of 12% of all Covid cases are confirmed, “added Dr. Cacodcar.

The group has also recommended an increase in the number of facilities to care for children because they have not been vaccinated against disease.

“Instead of the 3rd wave will only affect children, but the proportion of children [among infected] is likely to increase,” added Dr. Cacodcar.

“With what proportions will have cases among children who increase depending on infectivity of organisms, schools are reopened, community satisfaction and resumption of crowded meetings,” said Dr. Cacodcar. Pandemic Covid-19 has so far been infected by nearly 145,000 people in Goa and claimed 2,341 lives.
