Susceptibility of males in second wave of Covid and infection in young: A comparison of two waves
Keywords:Pandemic, SARS-CoV-2, reproduction number
Many countries have seen a two-wave pattern in reported cases of coronavirus disease-19 during the 2020 pandemic, with a first wave during spring followed by the current second wave in late summer and autumn. Empirical data show that the characteristics of the effects of the virus do vary between the two periods. Differences in age range and severity of the disease have been reported, although the comparative characteristics of the two waves still remain largely unknown. This was a challenging time, but we should faith on science to help us get through these pandemic and future ones. Differences in age range and severity of the disease will reported, although the comparative characteristics of the two waves still remain largely unknown. Those characteristics will be compared in this study using data from two equal periods of 3 and a half months. The first period, between 15th March and 30th June, corresponding to the entire first wave, and the second, between 1st July and 15th October, corresponding to part of the second wave. The most frequent signs and symptoms has been be noted. Several differences in mortality risk factors have also been observed. These results might help to understand the characteristics of the second wave and the behaviour and danger of SARS-CoV-2 in India. Further studies are needed to confirm our findings.
