According to the Union Health Ministry, more than 9 lakh cases have come down in the month of June itself. Along with this, another good news came that in the last 24 hours, 71 thousand newly infected cases of corona have come, while 1 lakh 13 thousand patients have been cured.
The pace of the second wave of corona infection in the country seems to be stopping now, which is being confirmed by the ever-decreasing figures. Seventy-one thousand one new cases of corona infection were found in the country on Sunday, which is a matter of great relief, because this is the first time in the last seventy-four days. When so few infected have been found in the country. Not only this, for seven consecutive days, the number of new cases of corona in the country has remained below one lakh. On June 7, the number of daily new cases was less than one lakh and since then this figure is below one lakh.
With the continuous decrease in new cases, the number of active cases has also decreased. Sixty-six days later, the number of active cases has reached below one million. Another big thing of relief is that the daily positivity rate has also remained at less than ten percent for the last twenty-one days, but among these relief figures, there has also been a worrying news and that is that the corona virus in the country. A new variant ie a new look has been revealed.
The new form of the virus means the possibility of being more contagious. Fear of being too deadly. The name of this new variant is Delta Plus. This is made after a change in the same Delta variant of Corona, which caused havoc in the second wave in the country. Showed such a scene of death, which shocked everyone. Got a shock and now the same Delta variant has changed to the more dangerous Delta Plus.
Scientists named the new variant of Corona as Delta Plus
The whole world wants the havoc of Corona to stop, but it is not happening. The whole world wants the virus to be annihilated, but this is not happening, because this invisible enemy is changing its form moment by moment. In medical science, it is known as a new variant, which proves to be more infectious and deadly than before. Another such new form of corona virus has been known, which scientists have named Delta Plus. Which has been seen due to the K417N mutation in the spike protein of the delta variant.
This change has come in that Delta variant, which is responsible for causing havoc in the second wave in India. Who can forget the fierce outbreak of the Delta variant, who can forget the devastation of the record-breaking case. Who can forget the pain of losing loved ones. For all this, that delta variant is responsible, which is considered to be the most contagious form of corona virus so far, but now there is a fear that Delta Plus may prove to be even more infectious than that. This new variant can also beat the monoclonal antibodies cocktail, which is considered the most effective drug for the treatment of corona infection.
Mutations in the corona virus are not new. The K417N mutation that occurred in the spike protein of the delta variant. This mutation has happened in beta variants before and that is why it has increased the concern of the country and the world because due to K417N mutation, beta variant can reduce the effect of antibodies made from vaccine, so delta variant, In those who have the ability to infect 60 percent more, due to the K417N mutation, the effect of the vaccine is likely to be further reduced.
Not only this, due to the K417N mutation, the beta variant has been able to re-infect people, so it is also feared that the delta plus variant can also trick the antibodies present in the body of the recovered people and can infect them again. Now how do you understand this? The K417N mutation is a change in the spike protein of the virus. It is through the spike protein that the corona virus attaches to the cells inside our body. Antibodies made from the vaccine or antibodies made in recovered people prevent the virus from infecting cells by identifying this spike protein. That is why due to the change in the spike protein, the virus is able to dodge the antibodies and this is the reason why the virus outbreak is not taking the name of stopping.
According to PHE (Public Health England), an agency of the UK Department of Health, 63 genomes of delta variants have emerged with the new K417N mutation. This came to light during a routine check of the changes in the Delta variant. Till June 7, 6 cases of Delta Plus variants have been reported in India. Every time there is a change in the virus, its new form comes to the fore. Be it the alpha variant or beta, gamma or delta, the apprehensions raised in the initial research of each variant turned out to be almost true and now the delta plus variant has also raised concerns.
Corona vaccine is not getting ineffective
Concern has increased after the detection of the delta plus variant because it is more likely to reduce the effect of the vaccine, but it also does not mean that the vaccine will be ineffective because the delta variant in which the corona took a new form after the mutation. has done. It also reduces the level of antibodies in the body, but despite this the vaccine is effective against it. Especially our indigenous vaccine Covaccine.
Scientists from NIV, Pune’s National Institute of Virology, did a research, in which it was found that people who got corona in the first wave and developed antibodies in their body, during the second wave in those people when infection due to new variants. When this happened, the level of antibodies was seen to be reduced up to five times. Similarly, antibodies were found to decrease up to three times in those who had taken both doses of Covaccine, but even after that the condition of those people did not become serious. According to the UK Health Ministry, Kovishield is able to work 60 to 63 percent on the Delta variant.
It is clear that even though the effect of the vaccine is decreasing, but the vaccine is not being ineffective, so we are once again appealing to you to get yourself and your family members vaccinated as soon as possible because new forms of corona ie variants. Will keep on coming. In such a situation, if you have got the vaccine, then at least if you get infected, the condition will not be serious. No matter how many variants of the virus are there, but the vaccine is the only effective way of prevention. By the way, the outbreak of the second wave of corona virus in India is also decreasing now. There has been a sharp decline in new cases of corona every day.
Normal life started returning on track after the corona infection reduced in Delhi
According to the Union Health Ministry, more than 9 lakh cases have come down in the month of June itself. Along with this, another good news came that in the last 24 hours, 71 thousand newly infected cases of corona have come, while 1 lakh 13 thousand patients have been cured. Active cases, that is, the number of patients undergoing treatment, has also come down by 48,593. In such a situation, many states of the country were unlocked from today and the process of unlocking was expedited in many states. Now it is important for you to know in which part of the country restrictions were relaxed more and where the unlocking process started. Let us first start from Delhi.
Normal life has started getting back on track with the corona infection decreasing in Delhi. Markets, malls and shopping complexes have been fully opened in Delhi under Unlock Part 3 from today. Restaurants and salons have also been allowed to open with half the capacity. Shops, gyms, sports complexes and stadiums have opened in Haryana from today. It is necessary to follow strict corona instructions in these places. In Madhya Pradesh too, there have been many relaxations in corona restrictions from today. Especially here now 40 people can participate in marriage ceremonies.
Only Unlock-2 is going on in Maharashtra but from today Palghar has joined Unlock-2. Here in Level-2, restaurants, shopping malls and cinemas have been opened with 50 percent capacity. These are the states where governments gave relief to people and businessmen, but this news of relief was flooded with carelessness on the very first day. As soon as the corona curfew is relaxed, the influx of tourists has started in Himachal. In the last 36 hours, more than five thousand vehicles have reached Shimla. Long queues of vehicles have been seen on the roads in many places in Shimla. In two days, more than 9 thousand people have applied for entry pass to come to Himachal. 80 per cent hotels in Solan’s Chail, 30 per cent in Shimla and Dalhousie are packed. These pictures are alarm bells. The second wave is not over yet that the fear of the third wave has built up.
People became worried as soon as the lockdown was relaxed
As the lockdown is being relaxed. The discipline of the people is getting unlocked. Watch these eye-opening reports from Delhi, Chandigarh and Lucknow. As soon as Unlock Phase 3 started in Delhi, Chandigarh, Lucknow, Srinagar, small and big cities across the country, people neither showed fear of corona infection nor compulsion to follow corona guidelines. These pictures of unlocked phase three are astonishing because in the midst of the stagnant second wave of Corona, when the unlock started to bring back the derailed life, then the discipline of the people started breaking.
The worry of the virus started to be left behind. Corona rules started flouting. As soon as people left their homes, people forgot to take care of the distance of two yards and also started forgetting whether masks are necessary to protect themselves and others. By showing such pictures of carelessness, we are constantly warning people because the second wave of corona is not over yet and the prediction of the third wave is scaring 130 crore countrymen, that is why even today we have investigated that India’s covid behavior as soon as it is unlocked. How is it?
In this country’s capital Delhi, Corona caused the worst devastation, but as soon as the whole of Delhi was unlocked, the lockdown was relaxed, the Haat-Bazaars started decorating and people started looking careless with Corona. In many markets of Delhi, the crowd also started increasing since morning. In the Ghazipur vegetable market, there was a scuffle of people in the morning itself. The whole market was packed with people. People were neither wearing masks nor following social distancing. Seeing the picture, it seemed that the fear of the virus has ended in the minds of people.
The third phase of unlock has started in Delhi from today itself. All shops have been allowed to open in the markets by eliminating the odd-even, but the pictures have disappointed on the very first day. Delhi looked fearless in its old style. More crowds were seen in roads, markets, malls, metro stations. So the police had to do bike patrolling in Delhi’s Dil Connaught Place. People were repeatedly warned to follow the Corona rules. .
Fiercely flouting the corona protocol
Now a lot of relaxation has been given by the Chandigarh Administration under Unlock, but people are taking advantage of this exemption with carelessness and are inviting the third wave of Karona. Here too, neither people are considering the distance of 2 yards as necessary, nor are the masks. Corona is shopping by keeping the rules in mind. Whether it is a mobile market or the biggest vegetable market in Sector 26. The negligence of the people was clearly visible in the presence of the policeman.
Now Lucknow, the capital of UP, was also seen gathering dust with the unlock guidelines. Clothes were being sold on a handcart at Aminabad crossroads, so there was a rush of buyers and sellers, that too without wearing masks. Crushing social distancing in the midst of the crowd, people running for their livelihood were not considering the mask necessary. The Uttar Pradesh government has allowed people and shopkeepers to relax with caution, but in the capital Lucknow itself, people are negligent in the face of the crowd without wearing masks.
Similar negligence was seen in Srinagar as well as in Delhi, Chandigarh and Lucknow. There was a crowd on the street tracks and the corona rules kept flouting. These are the same people who were in their homes with restraint a week, two weeks ago, but started breaking discipline as soon as they were unlocked, that’s why we are warning again and again that Corona does not discriminate, neither rich or poor. Take care of the big and the little ones and tie the knot that caution is the biggest weapon of protection from corona.
Lockdown is not a permanent solution to stop infection
These pictures flouting the Corona guidelines raise the possibility of a third wave and seeing these pictures, questions are being raised whether the country is once again moving towards negligence? Has the decision taken by the state governments to unlock it has been taken in haste? Actually, lockdown is not a permanent solution to prevent infection. Along with unlocking the states, it is necessary to follow the guidelines because to break the chain of corona infection, it is most important to find out the corona infected person and the people who came in contact with him in time and for this, a few days before the home testing from the government. was approved.
It started on 9 June and till 13 June infection has been detected in 150 people through home testing kits. Between 9 and 13 June, 1390 people tested the corona at home with the help of home testing kits. More people have used it in Maharashtra, Delhi and Gujarat. Currently, only three home COVID testing kits have been approved in the country, namely Mylab, Abbott Rapid Diagnostic and Meryl Diagnostic. RTPCR test will not be required if a positive report comes from the home testing kit. Through these, only those people can be tested, who are showing signs of infection or they have come in contact with an infected person. That is, weapons are also being found in India in the ongoing fight with Corona, but if people continue to be careless, then these weapons will also be left behind.
