State Bureau, Chandigarh. Corona Variant: Corona returning every time continuously changing form has returned in the old form this time. A large number of delta variants have been found in the new corona patients being found in Haryana these days. Last year, the second wave of Corona came due to this delta variant. In this, more than six thousand people died in the state. At that time, there was a situation of panic in the state due to acute shortage of oxygen, ventilator, beds and remdesivir injection.
Rohtak PGIMS submits report to Home and Health Minister Anil Vij
Haryana Home and Health Minister Anil Vij had entrusted the Rohtak PGIMS with the responsibility of ascertaining the nature of the virus in view of the rapidly increasing corona infection in Gurugram, Faridabad and Sonipat of the National Capital Region (NCR). When the team of doctors of PGIMS conducted a thorough examination of the samples of corona patients currently being found, the delta variant was confirmed in most of the people. Apart from this, Omicron virus was found in a large number of patients, which is relatively less dangerous.
The delta variant, scientifically known as B.1.617.2, was the cause of the second wave which caused much destruction. According to microbiologists, not only does the delta variant spread rapidly, but this virus can also easily make the disease serious by dodging immunity. However, later the Delta Plus variant also surfaced, in which all the earlier mutations were seen.
The firepower of the delta variant can be gauged from the fact that in the first wave of corona, where an average of eight patients died every day, 44 patients died daily in the second wave. When the second wave was at its peak, about 150 patients died daily in the state. During this, five lakh patients were found in the entire state.
Instructions to test 20 thousand people daily
State Health Minister Anil Vij has directed that 20 thousand people should be screened daily. At present, 13 and a half thousand corona tests are being done every day. In the second wave, the state government has made arrangements for 94 oxygen plants, 58 thousand isolation beds and 15 thousand oxygen beds, taking lessons from the ruckus over oxygen and beds. Eight thousand multi-disciplinary teams have been reactivated in rural areas.
Don’t want to scare, but need to be careful: Vij
” nothing to worry about. We don’t want to scare people, but caution is necessary. The pandemic is not over yet. Infection can be avoided only with vigilance and alertness. Even if the fourth wave comes in the state, then we are fully prepared. We have all the resources. At present, we have made masks mandatory in four districts where infection is more. If the infection increases, then restrictions may have to be increased in other districts as well.
