- Corona virus is not getting new people, due to this the chain of infection is broken
- According to some experts, the infection rate has come down due to the lockdown.
- Testing, genetic sequencing, focus on containment zones necessary to avoid new peak
70 to 80 percent of Delhiites have been infected with Kovid. This is the reason that as fast as the infection went up, it also came down rapidly. Experts say that this time there was no house left in Delhi where no one was infected. Newly infected people stopped meeting for the virus to spread, so there has been a rapid decrease in the rate of infection. Although some experts consider the lockdown helpful for this, but they too are calling it successful to a large extent. If you want to avoid the new peak, then keep doing genetic sequencing. Investigations continued at the district level. As soon as the mutation is found, by creating a containment zone, it can be stopped from spreading. The government needs to think this way right now.
Nandini Sharma, Professor of Community Medicine, Maulana Azad Medical College, said that this time the curve of infection went up sharply because there was a mutated virus and there was a lot of infectious. The virus spread very fast. One infected person was infecting 5 to 6. All the people that could have been infected were getting infected. On an average, 25 thousand new patients were being confirmed in a day, while many people were not even able to get tested. So as long as people kept getting the virus, the graph of infection kept increasing. When there were fewer people who had not been infected, the chain of infection started breaking.
The number of people taking the vaccine is enough in Delhi
Dr Nandini said that in the last sero survey, more than 50% people were found infected. I estimate that now the number has gone up to 70 to 80 per cent. Delhi also has a large number of people taking the vaccine. This is the reason why the chain of virus got broken. Dr Jugal Kishore, HOD of Community Medicine, Safdarjung has the same say. He said that if the infection spreads from 70 to 80 percent, then it has to come down.
Daily investigation of 60 to 70 thousand samples in Delhi
At present, 60 to 70 thousand samples are being tested daily in Delhi, but the infection rate is below 1 percent. Due to which it is being strengthened that only a few people are left to get infected, all others have been infected. Infection expert Dr NK Saini says that one reason for the decrease in infection in Delhi may be the lockdown. It has had an effect. If it had been done earlier it could have been better. But Dr Nandini says that the lockdown has not had much effect. Doctor Jugal Kishore says that the infection rate has come down due to the lockdown, I do not think so.
