As we all know, our nation is witnessing the third wave of Covid-19, the Omicron and the spreading of the virus is so fast that the number of covid cases that are getting per day is a huge count and the test positivity rate has also shooted up like never before.
The second wave of Covid-19 was not over by the time Omicron hit us. Even though it has been hiding behind the walls for some time it finally made its appearance and when it did it has been a sudden hike in the number of cases and the test positivity rate.
The third wave of Covid-19 is not just alone the Omicron variant but also the delta variant of the second wave and that is the main reason for the high spread of the third wave around us. The third wave has been a combo for the nation and that is the main reason for the chaos happening.
The only relief that the world is having is the effect of Omicron is very mild and the symptoms are more or less like a high viral fever for a person. The hospitalization rate is very low in all the states as compared to the hospitalization rates of the first and second waves of Covid-19.
The hospital cases that are reported in the hospitals are mainly the covid variant and not the Omicron variant and according to the reports, the only weapon we can fight against this surge is vaccination.
The government and the states request all people to get vaccinated and if you are fully vaccinated to start the booster dose. The states and government also started the vaccination for children between the ages of 15-18 ensuring their safety.
The government insists people with health issues and less immunity, pregnant women, disabled people mainly get their hits as the infection mainly spreads among these people who have less immunity.
The centre also has issued that vaccinations will not be taken without individual consent, but they should be well aware of the consequences they will be facing if they don’t take the vaccination amid the surges of covid.
The government and state request the public to follow the Covid-19 protocols such as wearing masks, maintaining social distancing, and frequently sanitizing.
