Infection On Rise


During one and half months lock down period, graph of corona infected persons are rising sharply. Despite several preventive steps taken by Government, rate of spreading pandemic is limited in India in general and Odisha in particular in comparison to different advanced countries.

During this lock down period corona positive cases in Odisha is racing towards two hundred marks. As per the latest official data as on 6May, 185 positive cases are detected in the state, out of whom 122 Covid-19 patients are under treatment in different hospitals. So far corona virus took two heads in Odisha whereas 61 infected patients are declared cured.

It is pertinent to mention here that first corona infected patient with Italy link was detected in Bhubaneswar on 15 March and the second with London link was traced on 19March. At that point of time corona virus was confined only in Khurda district of the state. 

So far COVID-19 has made its presence felt in at least 17 districts of the state. To check the pandemic State Government has opened at least 33 Special Covid hospitals and more than 7000 quarantine centers in all the districts. Quarantine centers are ready to accommodate more than five lakh inmates.

During these three phases of lock down started from the last week of March number of identified corona infected patients in the country rose from 536 to 49,436 out of whom 33,558 are under treatment as on today in different hospitals.

Number of corona death in India rose from 10 on 24 March to 1695 as on 6 May 2020. Though no specific medicine to treat corona is discovered at least 14,183 corona infected patients are declared cured in India. 

Within this one and half months period across the world, number of detected corona infected patients crossed 37.52 lakh mark. So far death toll in Covid-19 has crossed 2.60 lakh. However in the meantime 12.56 lakh corona patients are declared cured in atleast 212 countries. It is pertinent to mention here that as on 15 March 2020 number of corona infected patients in the world stood at 1,69,515 and death toll was limited to 6,524.

During this one and half months period several countries like Taiwan, Vietnam, South Korea have become role model in crushing corona successfully and many countries are following their model to fight this pandemic.

Because of proactive steps taken by Odisha State Government from the beginning, death toll as well as number of infected patients are not very high in comparison to advanced states like Maharashtra, Gujarat, Delhi etc.

However it is going to be a tough time during the months of May and June to contain the dreaded Covid-19, as per the prediction of scientists carrying out corona control research.
