Covid-19 third wave: BBMP to carry out children\'s census-1

Bengaluru: In light of the possible Covid - 19 third wave, which experts predict would affect children in large numbers, the BBMP has decided to conduct children's census in the city.

The survey, according to Gupta, will determine whether the children require different isolation facilities in case of a Covid-19 outbreak, as well as any other treatments that may be required.

This survey will be launched as soon as possible for depending on the same, upgradation of infrastructure required to serve paediatric patients will be put in place, according to authorities.

Gaurav Gupta, the BBMP's Chief Commissioner, indicated that paediatric units at both government and private hospitals are already being strengthened to meet the challenges.
