Mohit and Addite Malik's little munchkin Ekbir has tested positive for COVID-19. Addite Malik took to her Instagram handle and broke the news. Sharing a picture with her son, she wrote, "Motherhood Diaries, When Your NewBorn Tests Positive For Covid, Chapter 18 Battles happen from the moment a baby is inside a mother's womb and yes children are stronger than we can ever imagine!  My little Ekbir who has never had a fever till date, woke up one morning slightly warm.  We checked his temperature and it was 102 degrees.  The first thought that came to our mind was to test everyone and unfortunately Ekbir and one of my househelps tested positive.  Initially, I was shocked.  I was wondering how did this happen but then Mohit and I decided that we had to look at it positively.  Ekbir would fight it out and so would all of us as a family with increased immunity.  Ironically Mohit had Covid last year in January when I was 7 months pregnant and around the same time Ekbir too got it in the same week, same time.  Children catch on to their parents' anxiety and nervousness quickly.  It took us 2 to 3 hours but we decided that the house had to be playful for Ekbir and touchwood by God's Grace he is out of it.  We were all isolated in separate rooms and we all finished our quarantine were tested and are negative.  For me the learning was that yes Covid is dangerous and yes I was nervous but when it came down to it, we all fighters, including our children.  Stay safe, take all the precautions but if you still end up letting Covid enter your home, remember not to give up!  Fight it out and win the battle...."

Scientists have identified B.1.1.529 as the Omicron variant of the coronavirus which has 30 plus mutations in the COVID-19 spike protein which makes its transmission a lot more easier. What is threatening is that the new variant, Omicron, possesses immunity against the currently available COVID vaccines.

World Health Organisation On Omicron

World Health Organisation in their official statement about the new variant, Omicron read, "Omicron has an unprecedented number of spike mutations, some of which are concerning for their potential impact on the trajectory of the pandemic. The overall global risk related to the new variant is assessed as very high."

WHO's update on Omicron's transmissibility isn't clear whether the variant is more transmissible as compared to other variants, including Delta. There has been an increase in the rate of hospitalisation in South Africa because a lot of people have got infected. However, studies are still to suggest if it is because of Omicron or other factors.

What Does The Expert Say?

Dr. Mukesh Singh, Senior Resident, Delhi said, "Omicron aka b.1.1.529 is a variant of concern because it has large number of mutations and chances of reinfection is high  Vaccines can prevent severity of the diseases but are not 100% safe, so one should follow all the covid safety protocols to be safe."

 

We hope the actors get well soon and that the incident does not turn into a super spreader event.
