A primary reason for this could be that a majority of them are yet to get vaccinated. The government has started the vaccination process for children in the 15-18 age group earlier this month and claimed rapid progress in the effort. Health Minister Mansukh Madaviya said, in a tweet on January 13, that more than 3 crore eligible youngsters have received the first dose of the Covid-19 vaccine. He urged more eligible people to get vaccinated as soon as possible.Great sense of responsibility & enthusiasm among Young India????Over 3 crore youngsters between the 15-18 age group have received 1st dose of the #COVID19 vaccine ????I appeal to all my eligible young friends to get vaccinated at the earliest.#SabkoVaccineMuftVaccinepic.twitter.com/TewKNd4pIfDuring winters, most children suffer from fever, sore throat, running nose and cough.

If the symptoms persist, people should immediately consult a doctor and seek medical attention, they add.According to a report by news agency PTI, three children below the age of one had died in the four days between January 10 and 14 because of Covid-19 in Delhi.
