COVID Hits Over 9,000 Children In Maharashtra’s Ahmednagar, Govt Starts Preparation

Mumbai: Over 9,000 children in Maharashtra’s Ahmednagar have tested positive for COVID-19 in May. Following this, the Uddhav Thackeray government has asked the district administration to prepare a strategy to deal with the situation.

The state government has also directed the Ahmednagar administration to set up special wards for children in private hospitals and ensure the supply of essential medicines.

Last month, more than 600 cases of children in two Rajasthan districts — Dungarpur and Dausa, had tested positive for Covid.

Maharashtra was among the first states to be swept by the ferocious second wave of the coronavirus in India, which emerged in February, overwhelming hospitals and leaving patients and their families struggling to find treatment, medical oxygen and drugs.
