According to a study released on Thursday by the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) in New Delhi and the World Health Organization (WHO), the third wave of the coronavirus pandemic is unlikely to disproportionately affect children because they have high.

According to reports, the study was conducted in five states with a sample size of 10,000 people and was approved by AIIMS (New Delhi) and other participating institutions’ institutional ethics committees.

700 of the 4,509 participants for whom data is available were under the age of 18 and 3,809 were over the age of 18.

It’s worth noting that the study’s data was gathered between March 15 and April 15, 2002. “For the sites of Delhi urban, Delhi rural, Bhubaneswar, Gorakhpur, and Agartala, the median age of the analysed participants was 11 years, 12 years, 11 years, 13 years.

“Seroprevalence was 55.7 percent in the 18-year-olds and 63.5 percent in the 18-year-olds. According to a report in India Today, the study’s findings show “no statistically significant difference in prevalence between adults and children.”

The study concluded that the seropositivity rate of SARS-CoV-2 amongst children was high and comparable to the population of adults.

It is therefore unlikely that any future third wave would affect children over two years of age or older with the prevailing Covid-19 variant.

The survey found that resettlement colonies in the overcrowded urban areas of South Delhi are very high – 74.7%. The WHO-AIIMS survey also suggested opening schools for children with high seroprevalence in the urban areas of Delhi.

The survey showed a seroprevalence of nearly 59.3% during the Second Wave, both among children and adults, reported in rural areas of Faridabad.
