COVID-19 vaccine comparison: Know all about Covishield, Covaxin, Sputnik V ahead of vaccination

NEW DELHI: The Niti Aayog member (Health) Dr VK Paul on Thursday (May 13, 2021) outlined the central government’s plan which involved a total of eight COVID-19 vaccines that will help India authorities inoculate all its citizens by the end of 2021. 

The Centre has given a push to increase vaccine manufacturing and has issued emergency use authorisation to Biological E, Zydus Cadila, Serum Institute of India for Novavax, Bharat Biotech’s nasal vaccine, Gennova and Sputnik V.

But for the time being, there will be three options available for the Indian citizens from the upcoming week. These options include Russia’s Sputnik V, Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine- Covishiled and Serum institute of India’s Covaxin.

Sputnik V is an adenovirus-based vaccine that is being used by Russia for mass vaccination and has been approved by over 59 countries around the globe. 

Sputnik V is also known as Gam-Covid-Vac. This Russian vaccine is a combination of two different adenoviruses (Ad26 and Ad5), which are the viruses that cause common cold. These adenoviruses are combined with SARS-CoV-2 for the treatment, which prompts the body to make an immune response to it.

Additionally, Sputnik V COVID-19 vaccine shares its name with the world’s first artificial satellite made by Russia.

Covid third wave may hit kids, BMC prepares pediatric wards

Preparing for a third wave of the Covid-19 pandemic which is expected to hit kids, the Brihan Mumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) and Maharashtra government are gearing up by setting up paediatric Covid care wards in the city and elsewhere, officials said on Tuesday.

Taking an early initiative, chief minister Uddhav Thackeray last week directed all district collectors and municipal commissioners in the state to be ready for the Covid third onslaught which may also hit children in a big way.

Among other things, he suggested to the BMC to create separate paediatric Covid care wards anticipating the next wave and the demographics it may target.

"Since last year, our jumbo Covid care centres also have units of Covid +ve dialysis and maternity care as well. As the virus mutates and targets different age groups, our response to it must actively mutate as well," said Aditya Thackeray.

The pediatric Covid care ward is slated to come up at the NESCO Jumbo Covid Care Centre in Goregaon east suburb of Mumbai and 700 beds are expected to be added.

This would include 300 for a dedicated paediatric Covid care ward comprising Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) and Paediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) with a capacity of 25 beds each to cater to the infants who maybe hit.

Apart from that, the BMC is planning to build four oxygen plants and maintain of adequate stock of medicines like Remdesivir and Tocilizumab injections, masks, PPE kits, etc.

"In the 2020 first wave mostly the adult and senior citizens were affected. In the current second wave (from February 2021) young men/women and children are also getting affected. We have to be alert for the third wave. Also we have to account for the fact that the vaccination drive has not yet been opened for the under-18 age groups," a senior BMC official expressed his concerns, requesting anonymity.

Besides wide-ranging consultations shall be held with the Covid-19 task force, medical experts and other stakeholders, on the strategies that need to be adopted for the third wave, likely to slam the state around July, as warned by deputy chief minister Ajit Pawar recently.

December is the best month to have sex

NEW DELHI: The best time for sex is all year round, at any time and in the place you want, but having sex in December is much better.

By December, many people enter into a state of depression and melancholy, both by changes in climate and personal experiences and to combat the sadness related to the time, sex is really beneficial.
Skin-to-skin contact increases oxytocin levels, says Ian Kerner, author of “She comes first,” so it can improve your mood.
According to the health expert, 3pm is when men are most likely to give women the ‘emotional support’ they desire, while still pleasing themselves.
This goes against the commonly accepted notion that mornings are the best time, when men initiate intercourse first thing.
By having sex in December, your immune system will be strengthened, which will reduce the risk of contracting respiratory diseases and have more orgasms.
