New Delhi: Corona crisis still persists across the country. For the last six consecutive days, more than 40 thousand corona cases are coming to the fore. On the other hand, AIIMS Director Dr. Randeep Guleria has said that the reproduction rate (R value) of the virus is increasing in the country and it is a matter of concern.
According to Dr. Guleria, the R value of the virus was 0.99 earlier and after increasing it now it has become 1. One needs to be careful with this increase. Actually, the R-value is the speed of transmission of infection from the infected person, that is, increasing the R-value means that the speed of transmission of infection from the person infected with the virus has increased.
Vaccine is the easiest way to avoid the virus
At the same time, according to Dr. Shekhar C Mande, Director General of CSIR, the third wave of corona will definitely come, but it is difficult to say how and when it will come. According to Dr. Mande, research has revealed that vaccines are effective against delta variants. In such a situation, everyone should get the vaccine because this is the easiest way to avoid the virus.
Virus reaches Maharashtra after Kerala
According to Dr. Mande, the Delta Plus variant is also a matter of concern. We need to be careful of this. Half of the country’s new infection cases are coming from Kerala. The speed of infection shows that the virus reaches Maharashtra after Kerala and then spreads to other parts of the country.
Strategically work in the most affected areas
At the same time, Dr. Guleria says that there is a need to work on a test, track and treat strategy to break the chain of infection in the areas most affected by the infection. The positivity rate in 46 districts in the country is more than percent.
Understand the R-value like this
According to Dr. Guleria, the R-value of measles and chickenpox was eight or more. That is, more than eight people were getting infected from one person. The same is happening in Corona as well. In the second wave of corona, it was seen that the whole family got infected from one person.
