The year 2020 was surely not easier for everyone. The outbreak of pandemic Covid-19 at the very start of the year locked everyone in their houses. Everyone was almost forced to stay at their homes just to keep safe. The sudden and consistent rise in the number is again putting everyone in threat. The Indian government has notified different states to take on the required preventive measures.
The speed at which the number of active Covid-19 patients is being risen in different states like Maharashtra, Punjab, Delhi, Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh, Himachal Pradesh, and some other states is an alarm where we are heading at this moment.
I would rather say here, we are definitely not in the same condition as we were last year but still that is quite enough to fight with the arising condition. We are having better medical facilities, better infrastructure, and the best vaccine this year, but this surely can’t do anything until we will not take preventive measures for the same.
It isn’t only the government’s duty to deal with the increasing number of cases we all are somewhere responsible for it. We all have somewhere taking Covid-19 lightly and the results are what we are consistently watching on the records.
India recorded about 22,854 cases of Covid-19 infection in a day which is the highest number in around two and half months. This number has taken the total tally of Covid-19 cases in India to 1,12,85,561.
The situation is getting worst in the state of Maharashtra. The presence of mutant strain has incriminated this surge in cases and hence results in a worrisome trend. Moreover, reduction in testing, tracking, and tracking, large congregations, and inappropriate behaviour of people are some of the other main reasons that have spiked up the entire situation.
The situation is alarming and we need to work on the same. As per the latest reports, the number of active Covid-19 patients has been almost halved in Kerala but the number has doubled up in Maharashtra.
If we talk about the Capital of India, Delhi recorded about 400 new cases of coronavirus disease in the last 24 hours which is the highest one in the last two months. The last time when the national capital has reached 400 cases was on January 3rd, 2021. With the involvement of 409 fresh Covid-19 cases and three more fatalities, the overall caseload has been reached 642,439 and the death toll to 10,934. The number of active cases has been climbed to about 2020.
It’s not about Maharashtra and Delhi only where the number is consistently rising, but there are more states like Punjab, Haryana, Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh, Himachal Pradesh where the number is rising consistently. The situations are getting worst every second and if we will still take it for granted, it can lead us to another lockdown.
Punjab has reached about 9,402 active cases whereas we talk about Madhya Pradesh and Gujarat the number are 3,915 and 3,592 respectively. The rise in several Covid-19 cases is quite threatening and has worried the government and health officials also.
The Centeral government has advised the state governments to take on the restrictions as per their requirements. Almost everything in the nation is being opened up fully but the education system is the one that has faced the most. Online studies are going great but we can’t ignore the fact that virtual classrooms can’t replace the general ones to the fullest.
Not only India is being led in the number of Covid-19 patients, but the number of vaccinations is also being raising consistently. India recently has done with almost 2.43 crore vaccination. The entire vaccination process is being accelerated by the government along with the collaboration of PVT facilities.
The majority of the states today are facing an increasing number of cases and if we will not work on it, we need to be ready to face the adverse conditions as well. The rules for being safe are not so hard. We just need to be careful of hygiene, facemask and have to wash our hands regularly. Social gatherings often give an invitation to the raise in infection terribly. So, we would only advise you to reduce the same as much as you can.
If we go with the records, about 71% of the vaccine doses have been administrated in the public health facilities whereas the rate of vaccination for private facilities is about 28.77%. About 60% of the health workers have been administrated with the second dose of the Covid-19 vaccine. But the main question that arises here is that, does it quite enough to make this year and upcoming ones safe from Convid-19? We need to work smarter to make everyone safe from this pandemic. Ignoring preventive measures can force us to the worst situation in the situation.
Herd immunity in India is absolutely a myth in India and it is confirmed by the health ministry of India as well. So, if you are in a bubble that Covid-19 can’t do anything of yours, just burst up your imagination bubble now and Government and health officials are consistently doing their hard. The government has requested people to be careful. The pandemic is not being over yet. We can’t take on this virus for granted.
Vaccination is one of the most important aspects of the fight against Covid-19. Take benefits of the vaccination program being launched by the Indian government. If we have to defeat this virus and have to get back to our previous situation, we need to work harder, smarter, and in collaboration. No fight can’t be won alone so please embrace vaccines available.
Covid-19 vaccination was previously available in different private hospitals at Rs.250 per dose previously but this price again has been revised and renegotiated and has been lowered down to Rs. 200 now. We are blessed that we are living in a country like India. The government is providing vaccination for one and all. In government hospitals, it is absolutely for free. So, raise your voices, be positive for the Covid-19 vaccination program, boost up others and be a part of the worlds’ largest program.
