New Delhi: There is some news which will bring relief to the country facing the havoc of the Corona virus pandemic.
According to the country's renowned virologist and medical scientist Gagandeep Kang, cases of Covid-19 infection will start to decline from the middle of this month. Coronavirus infection is at its peak right now.
For the second time this month, more than four lakh cases have been reported and around four thousand people have also died. The increase in infection is that in a week itself, more than 2.5 million cases have increased.
According to Gagandeep Kang, there may be one or two more waves of corona infection right now, that may increase in new cases, but the situation will not be as bad as the current one. He said that at this time the corona infection is rapidly engulfing the areas which were left earlier. Infection is spreading rapidly in middle class and rural areas. However, it is unlikely to continue its spread in these areas for long.
Actual number of patients far more than reported
Kang also expressed concern over the dwindling investigation of the coronavirus while addressing a webinar. He said that the number of infection cases that are coming up in the investigation will be much higher in reality.
Anticipating yet another wave of the coronavirus pandemic, he also said that nothing can be said about when it will happen.
"We do not know much about the coronavirus nor do we know what form it will take next. So we have to be vigilant," he said.
Coronavirus will become like bad flu
When asked about the possibility of persistence of coronavirus, he said that it will become like a bad flu virus. He said it would become a seasonal virus, just like a bad flu virus.
Repeated infection and vaccination will create immunity among people. He also said that the coronavirus is changing form repeatedly and may outperform the immune system. To avoid this, we need booster doses. However, he is sure that due to the difficulties we are facing right now, we will not have to face such troubles due to this Covid-19 virus.
