The second wave of corona infection in India has reached its peak. Peak may arrive next week between May 3-5. A team of scientists has given this report to the government based on calculations on mathematical models. Peak of the corona may come a little earlier than previous estimates, as the infection also spread faster than expected. Peak in an epidemic is the condition after which infection declines.
In the second largest country in the world in terms of population, more than 3 lakh cases are being reported every day for the last 9 days. On Friday, 3.86 lakh people were found infected, the highest in the world. Due to uncontrolled infection, there was a big crisis in public health in India. The government has to import oxygen, medicines and other essentials from other countries, while India was exporting to the world till a few days ago.
“We believe that the new cases in the country will reach the zenith by next week,” M. Vidyasagar, the head of the scientific group formed by the government, told Reuters. The officials had told that the peak would arrive between 5-10 May.
Vidyasagar said, “We said (in the presentation) that there is no need for such structures which come in July and August, because by then the wave would be over.” Try to find out how we will fight in the next 4-6 weeks. This was the message. Don’t waste time for long term solutions because the problem is still there. ”
The peak of Corona’s first wave in India came in mid-September and the highest number of 97,894 cases were reported in a single day. Now more than three times more cases are being reported in the country. So far more than 2 lakh people have died and the total number of cases has reached 1.80 lakh. Vidyasagar said that the actual figures would be 50 times higher. Because a large number of people who have been infected have no symptoms.
