Amicron, a new type of corona, is spreading rapidly in India. The Union Ministry of Health said on Tuesday that the number of patients suffering from amyotrophic lateral sclerosis has already exceeded 200 in the country. Most of them are found in Maharashtra and Delhi. The rest are in Telangana, Karnataka, Rajasthan, Kerala and Gujarat.
Raldeep Guleria, director of the All India Institute of Medical Sciences, said India should be prepared for any situation with education from Britain. We need strong surveillance.
Amicron has already spread to 90 countries around the world. Experts say Amicron is stronger than Delta Plus in terms of transmission capacity. However, experts are still not sure about the ability to control the patient. According to the Indian Ministry of Health, the number of cases of ammonia is doubling in two to three days. That’s the worry.
Health Minister Mansukh Mandbeer also expressed concern over the vaccine. It is unknown at this time what he will do after leaving the post. The effectiveness of the vaccine is being tested. The final decision on the use of booster doses will be announced in a few days, the health minister said. In this situation, the Bharat Biotech Company of Hyderabad has applied to the Center for experimental application of its anti-intranasal antidote as a booster dose.
Despite the increase in antimicrobial concerns, the total incidence of covid in India is now somewhat lower. The number of infections across the country was less than five and a half thousand on Tuesday.
Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has called for not spreading panic. To understand the nature of the infection, he said, it was decided to send samples of all patients to the laboratory for genome sequencing.
The day of the last festival of the year appeared at a time when the prevalence of amikron was increasing. The Delhi government is taking a number of precautionary measures to celebrate Christmas and the end of the year. Although so far it is clear, Amicron has not been able to tarnish the festive mood.
Though it started slowly, India has crossed some notable milestones in the Covid vaccination program in the last few months. However, it is expected that India will not be able to achieve its ambitious goal of vaccinating all adults in the country by December 31. Because so far, 75 percent of the people in the country who are eligible for vaccination have taken one dose. In addition, the vaccine is full, that is, two doses received a little more than 55 percent. News BBC Online.
Millions of people in India are still at risk of contracting corona. Especially those who are suffering from complex diseases or those who are much older. Outbreaks appear to be exacerbated during this time. So some states have started giving incentives to create interest in vaccination.
Those who are being vaccinated are being given one liter of edible oil by a municipal authority in the western Indian state of Gujarat. The municipal authorities say that it is also getting good results, especially the poor people who come to the center to get a liter of oil but are vaccinated.
Pre-primary schools in the capital, Delhi, have resorted to a method of forcing parents to vaccinate their children by requiring them to take two doses of vaccine.
Such incidents are not new in India. These are managed by bureaucrats. Millions of people in the country depend on the welfare programs of the state. But even then a recent announcement is absolutely exceptional.
On November 23, a local official in the state of Madhya Pradesh announced that those who had received two doses of the vaccine would be able to buy alcohol at a 10 percent discount.
After the announcement, a lawmaker from the ruling BJP complained that it would increase alcohol consumption. As a result, the decision was withdrawn a day later.
Epidemiologist Chandrakant Laharia said the initiative of the Madhya Pradesh district administration official was a ‘perverted incentive’. According to him, even if some temporary results are obtained through this, it will be more harmful. Even if you don’t want it in the long run, you have to pay the price.
However, the initiative taken by a district in Madhya Pradesh shows how desperate the Indian government is to meet the goal of vaccinating all adults.
Experts agree that the crisis in the first few months after the launch of the vaccination program in India is now over.
But at the same time, experts say, it is difficult to find out why millions of people in India are still not vaccinated against covid.
Lahariya said that it is not a matter of 100 per cent people being vaccinated automatically once the supply is assured. Many people have to travel long distances to get vaccinated, or in many cases, they are deprived of half a day’s wages because of going for vaccinations.
According to the epidemiologist, the government needs to find out why so many people are not coming for vaccination.
Lahariya said the government does not have the information needed to analyze why people are not coming for vaccinations. At the national level, the government has to identify some places where the vaccination rate is lower than other places in the country.
Another reason may be that many people are infected with the coronavirus once or think that after taking a single dose of the vaccine, they will not be infected again.
In November, India’s health minister, Mansukh Mandavia, said more than 120 million people in the country who had received the first dose had not come for the second dose.
The new corona detection rate in India is now low. For more than a month, the number of daily corona detections in India has been around 10,000 or less.
Many are thought to be reluctant to get vaccinated due to declining infection rates. Again, many people think that vaccines are more dangerous than viruses.
According to health economist Rizo M John, the biggest concern now is that older people with complex diseases will be at risk if the infection starts to increase.
In India, 40 percent of people over the age of 45, or about 140 million people, have not yet been vaccinated or have received only one dose.
M John said the government needs to find out why such a situation has arisen across the country. If necessary, people have to go from house to house to get vaccinated.
It is unknown at this time what he will do after leaving the post.
Such greed is being shown not only in India but also in many other countries for vaccination. Russia has also set up a raffle draw for people unwilling to be vaccinated. As a reward for getting vaccinated, many people get a chance to win a motorcycle or a car that runs on ice.
Hong Kong has walked the same path. Thousands of people rushed to the spot after the announcement of the awarding of luxury houses, Tesla cars and gold bars.
Governments in several US states have also offered gifts and lottery draws to encourage vaccinations.
Researchers at the U.S. National Economic Research Bureau in the state of California have found that incentives do not increase vaccination rates.
Researchers write that in order to be successful in vaccination, it is necessary to formulate a strong and realistic policy instead of getting something immediate. This can be done by imposing new conditions in the workplace or by formulating various government strategies.
Another study found no evidence that the 1 million lottery did anything to encourage Ohio to get vaccinated.
Lahariya says establishing contact and understanding with marginalized people is essential for the long-term success of the Covid vaccination program.
