AIIMS Doctor Highlights 2 Factors On Which Future Covid Wave Depends
With total COVID-19 circumstances in India declining constantly over the previous few weeks, a number of states have began easing COVID restrictions, and crowds have began swelling within the markets, the place individuals could possibly be seen not sporting masks and flouting COVID acceptable behaviour that might result in a rise in circumstances once more.
“In any pandemic, the wave depends on two important factors: One is virus related and second is human-related factors,” stated Dr Neeraj Nischal, Assistant Professor Department of Medicine AIIMS, New Delhi.
According to Dr Nischal, virus mutation will not be in somebody’s hand however acceptable behaviour can keep away from a surge in COVID circumstances.
“Now virus mutates and becomes more infectious. It is something which is beyond our control. But of course, if we do not allow this virus to replicate in our body then maybe this type of mutations can be avoided. What we can do to control is our behaviour. We have been talking about COVID appropriate behaviour for 15-16 months and we know that by COVID appropriate behaviour, one can stop these waves altogether. That had happened in the second wave also,” he stated.
Speaking on lockdown, the physician stated, “when the lockdown was introduced, everybody was forced to follow COVID appropriate behaviour and this wave stopped. So, it is important for us to follow COVID appropriate behaviour, as that is definitely helpful in stopping the spread of the infection.”
He additional stated vaccination may even assist in stopping infections. “Even if you get the infection then it will ensure that you don’t get a severe form of the disease,” he added.
