Central Government Issues Guidelines on Covid in Children
The government has come out with guidelines for the management of Covid-19 among children below 18-years of age.
The guidelines issued by the Directorate General of Health Services (DGHS) under the health ministry stated that the use of steroids is harmful in asymptomatic and mild cases of infection. DGHS suggests using them only in hospitalized severe and critically ill Covid-19 cases under strict supervision.
Remdesivir, an emergency use authorization drug isn’t recommended in children. “There is a lack of sufficient safety and efficacy data concerning Remdesivir in children below 18 years of age,” the guidelines said.
