A committee set up by the Union Home Ministry has said a third wave of the (Covid-19) disease may reach its peak around October and children could be affected as severely as adults. In its report that has been submitted to the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO), the committee has spoken about the critical need of paediatric facilities, including doctors, staff, and equipment like ventilators and ambulances, if a large number of children got infected by the virus. It further said the available infrastructure was “no nowhere close” to the requirement, if the need arose.

World update: Covid-19 is continuing to spread around the world, with 213,273,952 confirmed cases and 4,453,032 deaths across nearly 200 countries recorded since China reported its first cases in December 2019. The US remains the worst-hit country with 38,813,549 cases, followed by India, Brazil, Russia and France.
