AIIMS director Randeep Guleria has dismissed the fears of havoc on children in the third wave of Corona. Talking to the media on Tuesday, he said that no such thing has been said in any Indian or global study that children are being affected more. Even in the second wave, the children who got infected had only minor symptoms. Apart from this, his severity had increased due to some other diseases. Giving hope of relief, the Director of AIIMS said that I do not believe that Corona will have any serious effect on children in future also.

The Joint Secretary of the Ministry, Lav Agarwal said that the total recovery rate has increased rapidly to 94.3%. Apart from this, the positivity rate has remained only 6.3% during June 1 to 7.
