The world has come to grips with the new wave of Corona once again. The infection is spreading rapidly in many countries including China, Japan, Brazil, and America. In China alone, more than 80 million people are expected to be infected within the next three months, while more than 1 million deaths are also expected. According to a report, more than 10 percent of the world’s people may be infected within the next three months.
In such a situation, the risk of infection has increased even within India. In view of the rising cases across the world, the central government has come into action. It is said that in the next few days, the government may again implement some rules, which will be mandatory for everyone to follow. Let’s understand what preparations the government has made for the prevention of Corona.
What rules can the government implement?
To understand this, we spoke to an officer of the Union Health Ministry. He said, ‘We are ready to deal with every situation of Corona. There is not much danger in India, but we should take all precautions. Considering this, we are considering reintroducing the Kovid protocol.
1. Masks can be made mandatory in public places: In view of the increasing cases of Corona, wearing masks in public places can be made mandatory. Especially for those people who have symptoms of the corona. For example, it will be mandatory for people to wear masks if they have a cough, cold or some virus.
2. Social distancing rules will have to be followed: After the declining cases of Corona, people had stopped following the rules of social distancing. Now once again it can be strictly enforced.
3. Random testing at airports, railway stations and bus stands: The process of random corona testing can be started at all major airports including Delhi, and Mumbai. Particular focus will be on the investigation of those people, who are returning from Corona-affected countries. Such people will be screened and, if found infected, genome sequencing will follow other protocols for covid. Similarly, preparations are underway to start random testing at railway stations and bus stands.
4. Booster dose will be increased: So far more than 23 crore people have been given booster doses of the corona vaccine. Now the government is focusing on increasing its number rapidly. As many people as possible can get a booster dose, so there will be arrangements.
5. Genome Sequencing Started: The process of genome sequencing has been restarted in many labs in the country. Samples of corona patients are brought here and checked to see if any new variant of the infection has arrived. So that steps can be taken to save time.
6. Focus on Testing, Tracing and Treatment: To prevent Corona cases from increasing in India, the government has decided to focus on testing, tracing and treatment formulas. According to this, more and more people will be tested and if someone is found to be corona-infected then most of the people who come in contact with him will be tested. Along with this, corona patients will be treated in time.
What is the current situation of Corona in India?
India ranks 51st on the list of the highest number of patients seen every day. Three new infections were found here on Tuesday, while no new deaths were reported. So far 4.46 crore people have come under the grip of infection in India. Of these, more than 4.41 crore people have recovered, while 5.30 lakh patients have died. There are currently 4,527 patients in India who are undergoing treatment. India currently ranks 90th in the world in terms of active cases.
