- Omicron reached over 38 countries in a few days
- The fourth case of omigran found in India, increased tension
- Experts are predicting the arrival of a third wave
The new variant of the corona, Omigron, is spreading fast. It has also had an impact in India. Fear of a third wave coming at its speed has begun to stir. Some experts have started talking about it. He says the third wave will peak in the early months of next year. Even before this, experts have been talking about the arrival of the third wave.
Some of the things the experts said are correct. Soon the new variant of the corona went to over 38 countries. This variation is also prevalent in India. On Saturday, a fourth Omicron case was reported in the country. Young people returning to Mumbai from abroad have been confirmed to have corona infection.
The man arrived in Mumbai on November 24 from Cape Town in South Africa via Dubai and Delhi. He was not vaccinated. 12 of his high-risk contacts and 23 of his low-risk contacts have been identified. Everyone has had a test negative. The first case of omigran variant was detected in Gujarat. It was diagnosed in a 72-year-old man. He returned from Zimbabwe on November 28. Each case is monitored.
In view of the new Omicron variant, the government has warned all States / Union Territories. They have been instructed to closely monitor international travelers, monitor emerging hotspots and immediately identify those in contact with affected individuals. In addition, all affected samples should be sent for genetic sorting, rapid identification of cases and review of readiness of health infrastructure.
In which countries did Omigron spread its legs?
The new type of corona Omicron has so far spread to more than 38 countries. These include India, Sri Lanka, Malaysia, Mexico, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Botswana, Brazil, Canada, Czech Republic, Denmark, France, Germany, Ghana, Hong Kong, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Mozambique, Netherlands, Nigeria. Includes Norway, Portugal, Reunion Islands, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, United Arab Emirates (UAE), United Kingdom and the United States.
How fast did the virus spread?
Omigran’s first case was discovered on November 24 in South Africa. Two days later, the WHO announced Omicron as a variant of concern. Due to this variation, the incidence of corona in South Africa has increased by 300 percent. Not only this, even after 30 lakh people are affected by corona in a few days, there is no place to put foot in hospitals.
Why are these figures important?
In the second wave, the country saw Corona’s extravagance. Then the delta variant caused corona damage. This variation spread rapidly. The second wave peaked in April-May. Increasing the speed of the vaccine helped to greatly control the corona. However, now the tension has increased again with the new variant.
In September this year, Dianeshwar Chaubey, a professor of zoology at the Banaras Hindu University (BHU), said the third wave would come at least three months later. However, the vaccine can increase people’s immunity. This will help them to face the third wave.
Meanwhile, Professor Manindra Agarwal, project director of the C3i Center of the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) in Kanpur, said on Saturday that if data were to be believed, only a few symptoms had been reported in patients so far. The vaccination program in India is 80 per cent complete and will not have that much of an impact. The third wave will peak in the early months of next year. After that the number of patients will start to decrease.
