For the first time since Corona's havoc began last Wednesday, the number of people who won by fighting this epidemic (1,35,205) was more than those caught in its clutches (1,33,632). The psychological impact of this cannot be denied, but is it fair to conclude that the thrust of the epidemic in India has begun to diminish now?
To get the right answer to this question, we have to focus on two points. The first is whether there is a trend of decreasing trends in everyday cases. It is clear that nothing like this is happening. At the end of May, on an average of five thousand cases started coming up daily, there was a panic. But around a week, about ten thousand cases are being filed every day. The second important point is who we consider being a recovering or repaired case.
According to the government guidelines, patients who are not very weak are not being asked for a corona test before discharge.
Also, if the fever has not been coming for three days and there are no other obvious symptoms, then such patients should be discharged by recommending quarantine at home.
Apparently, all such patients are included in the discharged/recovered list. No such study has yet come to know whether any of the patients discharged from the hospital showed symptoms of the disease again, or whether any of them had infected any other person.
If any improvement is needed in the guidelines, then it will be possible only on the basis of the information derived from this investigation.
A recent study by Japanese securities research firm Nomura is worth noting as far as the current situation in India is concerned. This study report of a total of 45 investment locations of the world has reviewed the situations arising in order to remove the lockdown there.
The report places India in 15 countries that are considered to be in greater danger in order to remove the lockdown. Out of the remaining 30, 17 countries where the possibility of a second wave of epidemic is negligible, while 13 have been asked to be aware of the danger.
It has also been feared that countries such as the US, Britain, and India, which are directly in danger, have been raised that cases of infection may increase very rapidly after unlocking, which may necessitate the withdrawal of lockdown in some places.
Who would like that? Life in the country is slowly coming back on track with unlocking. We will not have to get into any confusion and take every important precaution to unlock further.
