'We have created ample space for a third wave'If a Covid-19 third wave hits the country, children will be the most at risk because they are not vaccinated.
When the country was in the throes of the first and second waves of the Covid-19 pandemic, Dr Sher Bahadur Pun, chief of the Clinical Research Unit at Sukraraj Tropical and Infectious Disease Hospital in Teku, spent most of his time at the hospital observing the patients, taking notes and treating them. As a front liner, Pun had first-hand experience of the coronavirus disease and the many ways it manifested in patients. He was one of the leading voices who called out the government for its failure to contain the virus spread, increase the test numbers and shore up the country’s floundering health care system. As the spectre of a third wave of infection looms large, Anup Ojha and Drishna Sthapit of the Post caught up with Pun and inquired him about the current Covid-19 situation.
