The big blunder that we did during the second spread of the Coronavirus goads the government to ask people to deviate from gross violations of COVID-appropriate behaviours in the country. If we do not adhere to the general defined rules, it can negate the progress made so far.
Virus growth is surely not like we go through a daily weather update; it is contained by our right manners. We must not avoid the grim seriousness regarding the virus. We need to make efforts to prevent any future or third wave.
If we are dreading the third wave, we must not shirk our responsibilities related to infection deterrence. This point becomes more obvious with the factual data received from Union Health Ministry recently.
So the big question remains here is that perhaps one may not benefit by looking at one’s uncaring attitude. One should also consider if they have not strictly heeded a need for clinical behaviour.
If one thinks that the virus is no longer much dynamic and will not impact our lives, one can raise the grave odds of what one already has in place by reducing the fear of the pandemic or even shifting what the goal of the government is.
In the meantime, the Prime Minister has said that the medical experts were continuously studying how much the dreaded virus can be injurious after the mutation, but utmost prevention and required treatment are very important.
If we attentively read the country’s COVID-19 death toll climbing at the figure of 4,10,784 on 13 July with a tally of 2,020 new deaths recorded following Madhya Pradesh reconciliation to its fatality data while 31,443 new coronavirus cases pushed the infection tally to 3,09,05,819, according to the Union health ministry data.
“The third wave is caught sight of globally and called on people to make efforts to ensure that it does not happen in India,” said Dr V K Paul, Member (Health) NITI Aayog.
Whatever per cent of new COVID-19 cases reported so far in July were mostly from Southern states like Kerala, Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh and also Maharashtra, Odisha too, adding that as many as 55 districts were reported to have faced a COVID case positivity rate of more than 10% in the week ending 13 July.
The teams have been despatched to North-east states like Meghalaya, Mizoram, Arunachal Pradesh, Manipur, Nagaland, Tripura and Maharashtra, Chhattisgarh, Assam, Odisha to support them in COVID-19 supervision, said a news report.
