Bharat Biotech and Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR), has been found that most of the effective new strains of covid have developed in phase2. Which has a wide effect on the children.
Focusing on the other end most of reports states new covid strains were affecting more children. Digging to the past, Arvind Kejriwal (Delhi Chief Minister) states that new strains are very dangerous which can result in the third wave of covid, thus he appealed Central government to break all services with Singapore before these new strains invade India into the third phase.
सिंगापुर में आया कोरोना का नया रूप बच्चों के लिए बेहद ख़तरनाक बताया जा रहा है, भारत में ये तीसरी लहर के रूप में आ सकता है।
केंद्र सरकार से मेरी अपील:
1. सिंगापुर के साथ हवाई सेवाएं तत्काल प्रभाव से रद्द हों
2. बच्चों के लिए भी वैक्सीन के विकल्पों पर प्राथमिकता के आधार पर काम हो

Kejriwal appeal to government:
In view of the current pandemic, the new strains in Singapore is very dangerous for the children. It takes no time to reach Delhi, if so it is nothing but leads to the third phase in India. So it would be wise if we cancel all the airlines in between India and Singapore,
In alternative on a priority basis work on vaccines for children which would be so helpful.
