New Delhi: The second wave of Coronavirus caused tremendous destruction in India in March-April. The central government today warned that the second wave is not over yet. The government has appealed to the people to avoid going to crowded places and must wear masks. NITI Aayog member Dr VK Paul, who heads the government's Covid Task Force, said in a press conference organized by the Union Health Ministry today (Friday) that the war is not over yet.
Doctor Paul said, 'The second wave of corona is not over yet. The danger still remains. To completely eliminate the second wave, it is necessary to follow the Kovid protocol.
During the briefing, a video of Mussoorie's Kempty Fall was shown, in which a large number of people were seen without masks. The government said that such crowding at tourist places is indeed a matter of concern and such negligence would be responsible for the spread of the virus.
"Isn't this an open invitation for the virus to infect us?" asked Lav Agarwal, Joint Secretary, Union Health Ministry. Top officials said that the second wave of corona in the country is not over yet. We need to introspect whether we can tolerate the misconception that COVID-19 is over.
Luv Aggarwal said that there are 86 districts in the country, where 100 cases of Kovid are being reported daily. 80 percent of the cases are being reported in 90 districts. Cases are confined to a limited area. 53 percent of Corona cases are from Maharashtra and Kerala. 32 percent of the cases are from Kerala. Otherwise, there is a danger of increasing the cases of Kovid again. Giving the example of increasing again after the decrease in corona cases in many countries of the world, the Ministry of Health said that cases are increasing in UK, Russia, Bangladesh, South Korea and Indonesia.
Luv Aggarwal said that more cases are being reported in Bangladesh in the third wave. Cases are also increasing in South Korea. Discounts related to masks were given, now restrictions are being imposed. Cases are also increasing in Indonesia. He further said that giving exemption does not necessarily mean that Kovid is over. There is a need to think how to continue the Kovid behavior.
