Challenges faced and next steps

As the world is affected by the covid-19 pandemic and its consequences felt by every individual depending on status. At our juvenile home, for the safety of students, they were restricted to go outside. Children are used to playing indoor games and continue their studies online and we tried our best to keep them safe & feel happy.Everything was going well as we all were practised all precautionary measures to protect from covid-19 like wearing a mask, sanitizing hand with wish soap/handwash, maintaining social distancing and all, but on 30th May 2021 to ensure the safety of all the working staff and students, a covid-19 check-up was done with collaboration with district hospital Bijapur and surprisingly 3 students tested positive. It was really hard to believe because all three students are below 10 yrs of age who hardly/never go outside of our juvenile home premises. After this, all three students were isolated and under the supervision of home superintendent/district hospital Bijapur, timely medicines, rich food/fruits were given along with that every day they were motivated, time to time counselling and encouraged to practice yoga all these helps them to recover in a very short time. After these three students recovery a week later again 2 students had seen similar symptoms of covid-19, thereafter they were checked at the district hospital and found positive. Again we followed the same protocol and all the students were successfully recovered.
