In many parts of the world including India, the phase of decline in new cases of corona virus continues. Due to this, it was expected that soon the country would get freedom from corona infection. But now Omicron’s stealth variant has created trouble again. This new sub-variant of Omicron is wreaking havoc in the US, UK and China. After which concern has started increasing in India as well that in the coming days, Corona should not become a cause for concern again. Due to this the fear of fourth wave of corona has started increasing in the country.
World Health Organization (WHO) official Maria van Kerkhove has warned the world’s top countries that taking Corona lightly for now can prove to be dangerous. He added that this new sub-variant from Omicron is even more contagious than the stealth Omicron. This is the reason why corona cases have increased in many countries.
what’s up with europe
There has been a sudden increase in corona cases in European countries. Three lakh corona cases were reported in Germany on Friday. Germany’s Health Minister Karl Lutterbeck has appealed to everyone to take precautions. He admitted that the infection rate of corona in the country is increasing continuously. The same is the case with Italy and France. In Italy, about one and a half lakh new cases of corona were reported in a day. Whereas in France, one lakh 10874 new corona cases were stirred on Friday.
The outcry over the new variant in the UK
In the United Kingdom too, corona cases are increasing significantly due to the new sub-variant of Corona. The outcry in Britain due to this new variant can be gauged from the fact that 4.2 million cases of corona have come in the last one week. Officials believe that the Stealth sub-variant has increased the infection rate of Corona significantly.
Stealth is creating havoc in America too
In America, which claims the world’s strongest health system, there has been an outcry due to the new sub-variant of Corona. At present, an average of 28600 corona cases are being reported daily in America. However, it is not that much compared to the previous wave. Last year, an average of 80 thousand new cases of corona were reported in America. But health officials are also taking these new figures of Corona seriously.
Corona hit in China too
India’s neighboring country China is also outraged by the new variant of Corona. The Chinese administration has announced a lockdown in many cities. At present, the city of Shanghai, with a population of 26 million, remains the largest corona hotspot in the country. But the administration has not imposed a lockdown in the city. Corona cases in Shanghai have increased rapidly in the last three days. It rose from 1,609 on Thursday to 2,267 on Friday. Despite many restrictions, 2676 new cases of corona were reported in the city on Saturday. Given Shanghai’s role as a global shipping hub, authorities have refused to impose a complete lockdown on the city. The Chinese administration says that doing so can affect the global economy. However, some necessary restrictions have been imposed for the public.
what is the status of india
In the midst of all this, if you look at the current situation of Corona in India, there is some relief. At present, there are 16187 active cases of corona in the country. The recovery rate in India has reached 98.75. Not many cases of corona were seen in the country for the last few months.
Health experts in India say that the effect of Omicron has been seen less in the country as compared to the delta variant. He has expressed hope that Omicron’s new sub-variant Stealth will also not see the same impact in the country. However, the Health Ministry has again called upon all citizens to wear masks and maintain a distance of two yards. The ministry says that the corona crisis is not over yet and continue to use the methods of prevention from corona.
