Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is an infectious disease caused by a newly discovered coronavirus.
Most people who fall sick with COVID-19 will experience mild to moderate symptoms and recover without special treatment.
The first known infections from SARS-CoV-2 were discovered in Wuhan, China. The original source of viral transmission to humans remains unclear, as does whether the virus became pathogenic before or after the spillover event.
The great majority of people with coronavirus will have mild or moderate disease and will make a full recovery within 2-4 weeks. But even if you are young and healthy – meaning your risk of severe disease is low .
The Indian Medical Association (IMA) said that 594 doctors died during the second wave of COVID-19 across the country. It released an updated list on Wednesday and noted that Delhi (107), Bihar (96), Uttar Pradesh (67) and Rajasthan (43) have lost the maximum number of doctors so far.
While no such count is available for other medical staff currently, the Centre earlier this week announced a new system of processing the insurance claims under the (PMGKP) —Insurance Scheme for Health Workers Fighting COVID 19
The Health Ministry noted that claims will be certified by the District Collector and after approval will be settled in 48 hours.
The move follows several States raising the matter of processing delays in insurance claims. “This latest order is aimed at cutting down delays and to further streamline and simplify the processing of the insurance claims,” ministry only said.
At least 594 doctors have died in the second wave of coronavirus infections in the country so far, with Delhi accounting for 107 such deaths, the Indian Medical Association (IMA) said on Tuesday.
State wise data put out by IMA shows that nearly every second doctor who died in the second Covid-19 wave died either in Delhi, Bihar or Uttar Pradesh. These three states together account for nearly 45 per cent of the doctors who died in the second wave.
During Corona second wave in India have lost of any people and children’s have loss of their parents. Indian people have also met financial crisi. Doctor and nurses also died in India’s surge in infections began around mid-March and increased rapidly, reaching a peak of more than 400,000 recorded daily cases on Friday, 30 April. OverOver subsequent days the numbers fell, with just under 360,000 on Monday, 3 May – leading to speculation that a peak had been reached.
But in the past few days, they have started to rise again, in line with a weekly pattern of fluctuations that shows the numbers usually dipping on a Monday.And on Thursday, 6 May, the number of new recorded daily infections reached a new high of more than 414,000.
Accurate assessments of the extent of the virus are only possible with widespread testing.India has been conducting nearly two million tests a day.This dipped at the start of this month to 1.5 million.But by Wednesday, 5 May, daily testing was back at almost two million again.
This temporary fall in testing may go some way to explaining the extent of the dip in recorded daily infections in the first few days of May.Testing has also been highly variable across the country, with some regions showing significant declines.”This happened during the previous peak, in September, too,” World Health Organization (WHO) consultant and economist Dr Rijo John says.”When India was about to touch 100,000 cases per day, the testing rates fell.”
