These two states have a lot in common. There is a large number of people going to foreign countries from both these places.
West Asia is one such region where most of the people from Kerala work. According to the World Health Organization, the outbreak of the delta variant is increasing continuously in West Asia. As a result, the fourth wave of the coronavirus pandemic has started in Kerala.
In such a situation, a question arises whether the Middle East is also behind the increasing cases of coronavirus Kerala or is there some other reason. The answer to this question lies with Jugal Kishore, head doctor of community medicine at Bhagwan Mahaveer Vardhman Medical College, Delhi.
He says that the country's first coronavirus patient appeared in Kerala and the person had come from Wuhan, China. The Kerala government had tried hard to battle the first wave of the Covid-19 pandemic. People also strictly followed the Covid-19 restrictions imposed by the Keral government due to increasing cases.
Due to the manner in which the rules made for the prevention of coronavirus were implemented, Kerala was able to control the first wave very well. But during the second wave, cases of coronavirus infection increased in Kerala. A big reason for this can also be people coming to their homes from abroad.
He said that in the recently conducted Siro survey, it has come to the fore that about 55-60 percent of the people here are still outside the scope of infection. During this only 40-45 percent of the people got infected. Significantly, the delta variant became the biggest factor in spreading the second wave in India.
During this, those people in Kerala came under its purview who had survived during the first wave. According to him, the scope of this infection will increase further. This period will continue till most of the people come under its purview. However, this infection can definitely be reduced through vaccine.
Dr Jugal Kishore believes that the vaccination process is also going on fast in Kerala. But it needs to be accelerated. Even after taking the vaccine rapidly, if its infection increases, then it will not be dangerous. Deaths from coronavirus can be reduced by vaccination. This has also come to the fore in research.
According to the latest data of the Ministry of Health of the country, a total of 1,92,71,414 doses of coronavirus vaccine have been given till 7 am on July 30, 2021. Of these, 1,34,65,992 have been given the first and 58,05,422 have been given the second dose.
