Students are being found infected since the opening of the school-college
Let us inform that after the second wave of corona virus epidemic came under control, schools and colleges have started opening across the country, although along with this, cases of students being found infected are also coming up here.
The same happened recently in Indore, Madhya Pradesh and 30 senior, junior and trainee officers of Army War College here were found to be Corona positive. All of them had got both doses of the vaccine.
In Mumbai, more than 7,000 people have been infected after getting both doses.
It is worth noting that even after getting both doses of the vaccine, some people can be infected with corona and nothing extraordinary happens in this. However, these people do not become seriously ill.
It was revealed in a report that out of 25 lakh people who have had both the doses in Mumbai, 7,057 have been infected with corona. Of these, 52 per cent were over the age of 60 and did not require oxygen or hard drugs.
