Coronas grip in Nagpur has been getting thicker day-by-day; number of children getting affected by the virus have been increasing manifold. On Wednesday, a five-month-old baby boy from Gaddigodam area and a nine-year-old girl from Kondhali tested positive for the virus. Over 50 positive patients in the city come under the age of 15. Children accounted for 13.51% of the total positive corona patients in the city. When the information was provided, the total positive cases in the city were 374 as compared to 395 on Thursday. Contrary to the popular perception that children especially infants are not likely to be at risk of COVID-19 is a common misconception.
According to experts, one has to keep in mind that the virus, like elders, can infect children too. The average age of patients infected by the virus in the city is roughly between 31 to 50 years of age. While children have no visible symptoms and are at very low risk of being infected, they can still pass on infections to others. Thus it is necessary to look after young children more.
Out of the 50 Corona positive children detected in Nagpur, while 32 among them comprised boys, 18 were girls and more than two were infants. There are also more than eight children who fall in the age bracket of one to five years and 40 children from six to 15 years of age.

Shashi Tharoor is capable of bringing Congress back in power, says Congress leader Ashish Deshmukh
Former MLA and Member of Parliamentary Board, MPCC Dr Ashish Deshmukh speaking about the nomination filed by Congress MP Shashi Tharoor for the post of Congress President on Friday, said, “Dr Shashi Tharoor is a popular Congress MP who has done remarkable work for the nation at the international level. It’s very welcoming thing that the election of Congress President is being done in a democratic manner. This is an important step for decentralisation in the party and the future of Congress is bright. Soniaji and Rahulji Gandhi contributed a lot to strengthen the party.”
Congress leader Deshmukh added, “This is an important step taken by the Congress elites for the elections in a democratic manner so that the party can take a higher flight. Dr Shashi Tharoor has cordial relations with everyone in the party; he has the ability to give a new direction to the party. I believe that he will be able to handle the responsibility of bringing the Congress to power in the country by taking the party forward with new strength. If he seriously deals with issues like unemployment, industry, agriculture, inflation then Congress will have fruitful days. By doing transparent politics, he will definitely convey the thought of Congress to the people at the grassroots level. If you want a rejuvenated, bigger and dynamic Congress party, Dr. Shashi Tharoor is the right candidate. He has the open support of Congress delegates in 12 states and is getting the support of Congress leaders and activists from all over India. He will be elected for sure.”
Deshmukh informed that Tharoor would be visiting Nagpur on October 1 and 2 to hear out all thoughts of Congress delegates.
Nagpur citizens to revel The Raaas Garba next year!
Since The Raaas enchanted and enthralled Nagpur with its quality garba in its first year in 2018, the demand for encore has been reverberating the city. To cater to the huge public demand, the organisers of the king of garbas have decided to continue The Raaas next year on. Like its first year, The Raaas Garba will be presented to Nagpur in association with Nation Next in 2023. Mahesh Kukreja, the key organiser said, “Because of some reasons, we, earlier, thought of giving the event a break.”
He added, “Then COVID-19 struck the world. Now we plan to continue it from next year onwards. While I express my gratitude to Nagpurians to make the event a huge hit, I request the city’s garba revellers to not get fooled as a few garbas are falsely claiming to be The Raaas. We’ll be back next year for sure!”
