Is the second wave turning out to be far more disastrous in the State than the first? Doctors and experts have been observing that a lot more youngsters are showing severe Covid symptoms compared to last. The second wave has claimed the lives of 10 youngsters who had no co-morbid conditions. For instance, on April 14, a 27-year-old passed away at the RGGGH in Chennai, just three hours after being admitted. Only the next day did his test results come, showing him Covid positive.
