New Delhi: India is witnessing a surge in cases of corona and its new variant Omicron almost every day. Restrictions have been imposed in major subas like Maharashtra, Delhi, Kerala, Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Haryana, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Gujarat after the third wave of corona. Corona cases have continued to rise in India since 27 The September. On December 27, 6,780 cases were registered in the country, and after that the cases continued to grow. Initially, the average number of deaths was not increasing, but from January 4, the number of deaths in the rest of the states, except Kerala, began to increase. Lockdown is considered effective for reducing the number of deaths.
But a survey suggests that it may be necessary to do so, but it will increase the damage. The start of a wave is seen to increase daily in average cases of 14 days as markers. Thus the second wave started outside Kerala on February 12 last year and the third wave started on December 22. The daily covid case has increased on an average since December 27, but the seven-day average figure of deaths does not seem to be rising steadily. The case fatality rate (CFR) was recorded at 0.64 per cent during the delta wave last year, and is currently about one-tenth of the omicron wave at 0.07 per cent.
The response from World Health Organization (WHO) leading scientist Soumya Swaminathan has also surfaced on the issue. He clearly says that lockdown is not the solution. According to him, corona infection and its different variants have now created a worldwide understanding. Scientists know how to combat this disease. Moreover, people have also become aware. That shouldn't be the lockdown.
