There is no place to set foot in the market in the morning and evening. Is there no danger of corona then? Hotels are full on tourist spots. People are in party mood. Is there no fear of infection here, but till now no major decision has been taken on the danger of the day. Only a warning is issued.
How effective will night curfew be in preventing the spread of infection (indicative picture)
The cases of Omicron variant of Corona are increasing rapidly in India. The record of getting Omicron cases in the country has been broken and in 1 day a record 135 Omicron cases were found and in just 27 days, it increased from 2 to 687 Omicron cases. From Delhi to Dehradun, from Haryana to Karnataka, only the same thing. Same question. It’s not a matter of intention. Have a policy against Corona. People ask what is the use of such a policy.
There was a record increase in corona cases in Delhi and 496 infected were found in the last 24 hours. Highest new cases in Delhi after 6 and a half months
And in 1 day, there was a 50% increase in new cases of corona. There has been a big jump in new cases of corona in Mumbai. In Mumbai, 1377 new infected were found in the last 24 hours. New cases of corona in Mumbai have increased by 70% in 1 day.
Not a big decision on the danger of the day
All these questions are because there are not many restrictions during the day. If people come to listen to speeches of leaders in the rally, is Corona not there? There is no place to set foot in the market in the morning and evening. Is there no danger of corona then? Hotels are full on tourist spots. People are in party mood. Is there no fear of infection here, but till now no major decision has been taken on the danger of the day. Only warnings are issued and advisories come out.
But as the cases of corona increase, the first and easiest option with the government is night curfew. Hence the night ban begins. Madhya Pradesh, Haryana, Gujarat, Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan, Karnataka, Odisha, Tamil Nadu, Jammu and Kashmir are the states where night curfew has been imposed at present. This list may get longer in the coming times, but when our reporter roamed the streets at night and saw how much corona he got and how many super spreaders of corona. This is not difficult to understand.
What happens in Night Curfew?
Actually, in night curfew, there is a ban on people going out from 8 pm, 10 pm or 11 am to 5 or 6 am. The logic is that unnecessarily crowd should not gather. Governments feel that this can reduce the number of cases.
At the beginning of the second wave, many states had earlier imposed night curfew.
But when this did not control the situation, then the lockdown had to be imposed. Although this time also the same pattern is being followed, but the crowd is visible during the day. Experts have different opinions on this when people gather in the rally. Some believe that the government decides according to the situation.
After all, what is the parameter of night curfew?
So the question is what is the parameter of night curfew. How to decide that now there is a situation of night curfew in any district or city, any state, then the states have different action plans regarding this.
For example, if the positivity rate in a city is more than 5%, then it is a matter of concern. This is seen as a warning. That is why that city is asked to impose restrictions. Similarly, if the speed of infection is more than 10%, then strictness is increased further. Such a trend has been seen so far in India.
So a 7 point action plan has been made against COVID in Maharashtra, it includes things like testing of close contacts, fast contact tracing, mass testing at hot spots.
Graded Response Action Plan in Delhi
Delhi has a Graded Response Action Plan against Corona. Alerts have been prepared at 4 levels.
Infection rate 0.5% for two consecutive days – Level 1 Yellow Alert
Infection rate more than 1% – Level 2 Amber Alert
Infection rate more than 2% – Level 3 Orange Alert
Infection rate more than 5% – Level 4 Red Alert
And since this time there is a possibility of a third wave from Omicron and this variant spreads very fast, then the states where more cases of Omicron are being detected. There restrictions have started even before the night curfew. Like the Yellow Alert has started in Delhi from today.
What are the restrictions other than Night Curfew in Delhi?
20 people have got permission for marriage and funeral.
All other gatherings are already banned.
Delhi Metro will run with 50% seating capacity.
Two passengers can sit in auto and cab.
Can go to the park but not have a picnic.
-Restaurant and bar approved with 50% capacity.
Religious places will remain open but devotees are allowed to go.
The only thing is that Omicron cases are increasing in the country right now, but it is not at that level. Where the danger is high, that is why the government is imposing restrictions according to its own accord and as far as the rally is concerned, the Election Commission has to decide on it and there is also a need that political parties should also take precautions from people more than gathering crowds. Appeal. If possible, rally on digital platform. This will also lead to a rally and the crowd will not gather.
In fact, the difficulty of patients in Delhi has doubled because the doctors who should treat the patients. Must be in hospital. He went on strike. Due to this the workload on the government hospitals of Delhi increased. Patients are circling for many days, but no one is there to treat them. Today, the concern had increased when the doctors of AIIMS had also supported the strike, but later withdrew the decision. What is the whole matter. understand from the report.
For the last several days, these pictures of Delhi’s government hospitals were visible. The relatives of the patient were roaming here and there for treatment, if you listen to them, then you will get an idea of what is the compulsion, how much is the problem.
Doctors on strike in Delhi for 11 days
In fact, for the last 11 days, resident doctors across the country including Delhi were on strike. He had withdrawn from OPD and all other medical services. Due to this, 6 government hospitals in Delhi had to bear the brunt. Apart from Safdarjung, resident doctors of LNJP, RML and Lady Hardinge joined the strike. During this several meetings were held between the Union Health Ministry and the Federation of Resident Doctors Association.. but nothing happened and yesterday the pictures that came outside Delhi added to the concern.
There was a confrontation between the police and the doctors. The police had even detained many doctors. After this, today it was told by the doctors that if the demands are not accepted, then they will stop working in the COVID ward and they also got support from the doctors of AIIMS. But in the midst of all this, today Health Minister Mansukh Mandaviya spoke to a group of doctors and appealed to them to return to work.
why doctors are on strike
Doctors are protesting against the delay in counseling after the NEET-PG exam. Actually every year the exam for PG is held in January and by May new doctors join. This year the exam could not be held in January. COVID was cited. The exam was held in September. The result is out, but counseling has not happened. The counseling date has not been announced yet. The matter has gone back almost a year. About 45 to 47 thousand MBBS doctors are waiting to do PG.
Because of this the strike was called.
On the one hand the doctors’ strike and on the other hand the negligence of the people can be very heavy because at this time the super spreader variant of Corona is spreading as fast as Omicron in the country. The danger is also increasing equally. How big can this threat be and why is Omicron being called the super spreader variant. To understand this, it is important for you to know how many people an Omicron infected can infect.
And the measure of knowing this is the R factor of the variants of the virus i.e. reproduction number… which tells how many people an infected person can spread the virus to. One person infected with the original strain of Corona used to infect three people. Then came the alpha variant, then this figure increased to five. The Delta variant goes up to seven, but the Omicron has an R factor of five times that of the Delta. It is being told that one infected person is infecting 35 people. This is the reason that Omicron has spread to 119 countries of the world in just 35 days, including India.
