The second wave of corona in the country is proving more dangerous. Cases of corona infection are increasing day by day. A complete lockdown has been imposed in the Raipur district of Chhattisgarh from 9 April to 19 April. At the same time, a night curfew has been imposed in many cities of the country. Amid increasing cases of the corona, the Union Health Ministry has expressed concern that the next 4 weeks are going to be very important. In this second wave, some surprising facts about the coronavirus have been revealed.
The lockdown has been imposed from 9 April to 19 April in Raipur, the capital of Chhattisgarh. The district collector said that Raipur district has been declared Raipur District Containment Zone from 9 am to 6 pm on April 19.
There is a record increase in corona cases. According to the Health Ministry, 1.15 lakh new cases have been reported in the last 24 hours, which is the biggest spike so far. In the last one day, 630 people died of Kovid.
Many states of the country are vulnerable to corona infection. However, Maharashtra is the worst state among them. Where Kovid-19 cases are increasing continuously and the death rate due to corona is also increasing.
In many states, a corona check has been made compulsory for travelers coming from other states. Rules have been tightened regarding Kovid-19 at railway station, airport and bus station. Some states have banned inter-state transport. Keeping in mind the increasing cases of corona, the Madhya Pradesh government has stopped the bus services to and from Chhattisgarh till April 15.
Youth, children and pregnant women are also being affected in the second wave of Corona. Dr. Suresh Kumar, MD of Lok Nayak Hospital in Delhi, said that earlier people were infected due to corona virus, but now most of the people infected with Kovid-19 include young, children and pregnant women.
Maharashtra Health Minister Rajesh Tope said that, the new strain of corona virus is affecting people in a short time. The sample has been sent to the National Center for Disease for its investigation.
World Health Organization Chief Scientist Soumya Vishwanathan has asked to be cautious about complete lockdown in an interview with Indian Express on Wednesday. According to Vishwanathan, the lockdown will have a very bad effect. He said that the second wave of Corona has to be controlled and for this it is necessary that people should be vaccinated.
The risk of Coronavirus reinfection has also increased in the country. The Indian Medical Council of Medical Research (ICMR) claims that 4.5% of cases of Kovid-19 reinfection have been reported in India. That is, those who became negative by being corona positive and later became infected with corona again.
Amid the continuous increase in the corona cases, many states have appealed to the central government to apply vaccines to people of all age groups. Congress leader Rahul Gandhi also supported this demand of the states, that people of all age groups should be given the Corona vaccine.
Vaccination is being emphasized for prevention between increase in Kovid-19 cases, but supply of vaccine is not being able to meet demand. Maharashtra Health Minister Rajesh Tope said that there is only 3 days of vaccine stock left in the state. By informing the Union Health Minister about this, we have asked the Center to send more stock.
