Amid fear of Covid's third wave, viral flu cases of children in 12 districts on rise


Bengaluru, Sep 17 (IANS): The Karnataka health department is closely observing the developments in 12 districts, including Bengaluru as a large number of children have got affected with viral flu amid the fears of the Covid third wave to hit the children.

The parents, who had heaved a sigh of relief after the reopening of schools are now concerned about development.

The children showing symptoms of cold, cough, fever and breathing issues are getting admitted to hospitals for the past 15 days in the state. Though, the experts are saying that it is normal viral flu found in the rainy season, the health department sources say that the fingers are crossed over the development.

The most number of cases are reported from Bellary, Yadgir, Chikkaballapur and Chitradurga districts. Along with this, more children are being admitted to hospitals in Raichur, Bidar, Ramnagar, Belagavi, Vijayapura, Kalburgi and Bagalkot districts.

Consultations to private clinics and pediatric hospitals are also rising in these districts.

All beds are full in the K.C. General hospital, one of the main government hospitals in Bengaluru. The children affected with cough, cold, fever, breathing issues are being admitted and treated. A few cases of Pneumonia and Dengue are also being treated.

All children who faced breathing issues are subjected to RT-PCR tests and no Covid positive case has been found. The symptoms are found in the children among the age group of 1 and 3 years rather than in the school-going children, explains Dr Lakshmipathy, the pediatric division head in K.C. General Hospital.

The district health hospital ward in Bellary is full and people from the rural areas are staying with their children on the premises looking up for admissions in the hospitals. The Bellary district hospital has 30 dedicated beds for children. The hospital authorities have arranged another 23 beds to treat children, explained District health officer Dr Janardhan.

Along with district hospitals, taluk hospitals are also seeing a rush in admissions of children for viral infection. On an everyday basis, as many as 150 to 200 kids are being treated for viral flu in each of the district hospitals and 50 to 60 children are being admitted.

About 50 kids are admitted to the district hospital in Chikkaballapur with symptoms of cold, cough and fever, the native district of the Health Minister K. Sudhakar. The influenza cases are on the rise in districts of Bidar, Kolar, Belagavi, Bagalkot districts.

Meanwhile, the state government has undertaken a massive Covid-19 vaccination drive in the state on Friday. Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai has announced that the state has set a 30 lakh vaccination target for the entire state in one day. He will kickstart the drive from Kalburgi. Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagar Palike (BBMP) Chief Commissioner Gaurav Gupta stated that he has set a target of 5 lakh vaccinations in Bengaluru alone.

    Divine message on how to protect immune system to John Leary dated Wednesday, September 8, 2021: (Message mainly to american but also for rest of the faithful and believers) .... Jesus said: “My people, your media is constantly attacking the unvaccinated, and your government is doing everything to get your employers to force workers to get vaccinated. You should not be forced against your will to take a poison Covid shot, and even the vaccinated should not take any booster shots. You are entering the flu season, and it is hard to see your tests telling the flu shot apart from the Covid virus. You need to keep your immune systems protected with vitamin C and D3 2000. Take some zinc as well as your Hawthorn pills. By eating properly with occasional fasting, you can stop any Covid delta variant attacks. Refuse to take any Covid shots or flu shots. The restrictions on the unvaccinated will be getting worse, and the evil ones will use any increases in Covid cases for another potential lock down. I want My refuge builders to be prepared for taking many people into their refuges. The time to call people to My refuges draws close, as your lives will be in danger soon from any shut downs or more mandatory restrictions. Have your food and water ready to share with the people. Trust in Me and My angels who will be multiplying food and fuels for your people to survive.” Ref: http://www.johnleary.com/index.php/?cat=3&order=DESC

    Young adults dying without explanation in US ? and mRNA vaccines showing deadly colors there? Still liberals (another name for communists) push deadly vaccines ? Divine message on it to John Leary dated Monday, September 13, 2021: (Message mainly to american but also for rest of the faithful and believers).... Jesus said: “My people, you repeat the Centurion’s words at every Mass when you say: ‘Lord, I am not worthy that you should come under My roof, but only say the word and my soul shall be healed.’ I was so pleased with this man’s faith that he should be an example for all of you to follow in humble worship of Me. Many of you may have wished to be with Me when I was on the earth, but you do have Me in My Real Presence in the consecrated Host. You will see Me soon in My coming Warning, so have your soul prepared with frequent Confession. The unvaccinated people will be further harassed by Biden in his evil effort to get everyone vaccinated with the poisonous Covid shots. You are hearing of young adults dying without explanation. Now, your morticians are seeing dead bodies with many blood clots all over their body which is a result of the Covid shots. This is not being made public, but some people are speaking out of such deaths. You will be protesting the Covid shot mandates for the nurses at your local hospital today. There has not been much resistance to Biden’s vaccine mandate, and this is one instance. Continue pushing back against these mandates, and advise people to not take these poisonous Covid shots that ruin your immune system, and could kill people in a few years. Trust in Me to protect My believers when the authorities will try to kill you. Then I will call you to My refuges of protection.” Ref: http://www.johnleary.com/index.php/?cat=3&order=DESC

    Before going to third wave how the second wave started or Why covid is not getting under control....These are vaccine? or Virus generators? Elites using them to rake billions? Look at the following (link) virus infections and deaths graphs after vaccination in various countries, a research done by French Medical Doctor: Who says "COVID-19 Injections Increasing DEATHS and New Infections – The Evidence is Overwhelming..." Ref: https://healthimpactnews.com/2021/french-medical-doctor-covid-19-injections-increasing-deaths-and-new-infections-the-evidence-is-overwhelming/

    Neither government nor the school administration is ready to take responsibility for our children during offline classes. This is the reason they ask for parents letter. How can parents monitor their children in school. Dont expect children to follow covid protocol when schools themselves don't follow the protocol. They only want fees. So parents should Decide finally what is good for their children safety. Hasty decisions can prove costly.

    Viral flu is not dangerous and is self limiting, to some extent it may give cross immunity against Covid.

    Cross immunity comes from exposure to similar (but not same) virus, e.g. cowpox and smallpox virus-the milk maid of Edward Jenner had challanged him that she will never get smallpox as their cows had cowpox. From this observation Edward Jenner discovered the vaccine for smallpox.It is a strong immunity. Barabar Che?

    Our experts are moving their tongues here & there unnecessarily. They don't know what they are talking. After 2014 all uneducated are become experts. Actually they don't know which is first wave & which one is the 2nd.

    There is nothing to panic about this fever . It’s a seasonal fever which happens every year during this fever . Precautions to be implemented as the children started to attend offline classes . So it s a parents duty to ensure all necessary requirements to children ..
