Coronavirus: You must remember the second wave of corona virus. During that covid (Covid) The cases were increasing in a terrible way. Patients were dying in hundreds and the hospitals were full. Then the reason for the second wave is Corona delta variant Was. This variant was so contagious that it was directly attacking the lungs. Due to which the oxygen level was decreasing and the patients were dying.
The second wave and delta variants are being discussed here because Kovid is again taking a dangerous form in the country. For the last one week, a huge jump has been seen in new cases of corona. Although the situation is not like the second wave, but the rising graph of Kovid is raising concerns.
It was only 10-15 days ago when less than 500 cases were coming daily, but now the picture is increasing rapidly. The figures are also confirming this. On Thursday, more than 3 thousand corona cases came in the country. These are 40 percent more than the cases that came a day earlier. After 6 months, so many cases of virus were registered in the country. 14 deaths also happened in one day. The graph of deaths is also increasing.
Experts are considering the new XBB.1.16 variant of Omicron as the main reason for the increase in cases. There have been more than 600 cases of this variant across the country. It is also bypassing the immunity made against Kovid and it is also causing deaths. Now the question arises whether Omicron’s XBB.1.6 variant will also become as dangerous as Delta? Let us know what the experts say about this.
Why has Corona started increasing again?
HOD in the Department of Community Medicine, Safdarjung Hospital, Delhi Dr. Jugal Kishore has given many details about Kovid in a conversation with Tv9. Dr Kishore It is said that due to change in weather, more testing and Omicron’s new XBB.1.16 variant, cases of Kovid are increasing. People are not following the Kovid protocol. In such a situation, the virus is getting a chance to flourish.
It may also happen that other than Omicron, some other variant is also present, due to which cases are increasing, although the new variant has not been confirmed, but there is a possibility that there is some other strain, which is spreading. It may also happen that an old strain has become active again, but at the moment it is not being identified. All this information can be known only from the data of genome sequencing.
Can the situation be like the second wave?
In response to this question, Dr. Kishore says that if we look at the trend of last one week of Kovid, then the situation is not very worrying. In a big country like India, getting 3000 cases in a day is nothing to worry about. Yes, cases are coming after many months then panic situation is visible, but if you see then more tests are being done as compared to last few months, since virus is always present around then people are getting positive after testing. Are.
Even though the cases of Kovid have been increasing continuously, but there is no such boom in them as we saw during the second wave. The figures of hospitalization and deaths are also much less as compared to the second wave. Respiratory problems are not being seen in people. Most of the people are getting flu like symptoms. That’s why we can say that the situation like the second wave is neither there now nor will it happen.
Mild symptoms are visible, but why are deaths happening
To know the answer to this question, we spoke to Rajiv Gandhi Hospital Dr. Ajit Kumar Dr. Kumar says that most of the people who die due to Kovid are elderly and patients suffering from chronic disease. There is always a fear of death due to infection in such people. We also have to see whether the primary cause of death is Kovid itself or patients are dying due to some other virus or disease. In such a situation, there is a need to know the real cause of the deaths.
must wear a mask
Dr. Kumar has said that a mask is necessary to prevent Covid. This will protect against virus. Especially those at high risk must use masks. People are advised not to be negligent about Kovid and strictly follow the rules of prevention.
