Brazil, India, Indonesia, Colombia and Britain have once again started reporting the maximum number of new cases of global pandemic corona. Looking at this trend of increasing cases, it is clear that for the last four weeks, there has been a huge jump in the cases of corona across the world. If we look at the WHO’s data between July 5 and July 11, during this period more than three million new cases of corona were reported worldwide, which is three percent more than the previous week.
As soon as the head of the World Health Organization (WHO) Tedros Adhanom announced the start of the third wave of corona in the world, everyone’s attention is turning towards the countries where corona cases have started increasing again. The delta variant has now spread to more than 111 countries of the world and the maximum number of new cases are coming from Brazil. While cases have started increasing in India as well as in Indonesia, Colombia, UK. Looking at the trend of increasing cases, it is clear that for the last four weeks, cases of corona have started increasing again across the world.
At the same time, experts from the WHO’s emergency committee also warned on Thursday that it would be difficult to stop the epidemic with the new variant. The speed with which new cases are increasing in the world is frightening. After the end of the second wave, in the world where only three lakh cases were coming in a day on an average, it has now increased to nine lakh per day in the last one month. At the same time, after a decline in the number of deaths for about 10 weeks, the number of people who lost their lives from Corona has started increasing again. The largest increase in new deaths was seen in the African region.
Top 5 countries where most new cases have been reported in the last week and what is the status of vaccination there
Brazil is number one with the most new cases at 3,33,030. (There has been a decrease of 9% in new cases.) Here 15-3 percent of the people have received both doses of the vaccine.
India is at number two with 3,91,789 cases. (A 7% reduction in new cases.) The pace of vaccination in India, which seemed to be accelerating two weeks ago, has also slowed since then. India has given at least one dose to 22.4% of the population as of July 9. 7.78 crore i.e. only 5.7% people have taken both doses of the vaccine.
It remains at number three with 2,43,119 cases. (44% increase in new cases), in the previous wave in Indonesia, 12 thousand cases were coming every day, now cases are increasing at 40 thousand per day. The 1.59 crore population here has received both doses of the vaccine.
There are 2,10,277 new cases here and it is at number four. (New cases have increased by 30%.) In Britain, where during the second wave a few months ago, 59 thousand cases were coming daily, now 34 thousand cases are being reported daily. According to data from the UK-Office for National Statistics (ONS), one in every 540 people is infected with the delta variant. It is spreading very fast in the UK. The campaign started in the UK in December 2020 with the vaccination of a 91-year-old woman. Both the doses of 3.52 crore vaccines have been taken here and 52.7 percent of the population has taken the vaccine.
Colombia is at number five with 6,74,320 new cases. (There has been a 15% reduction in new cases.) Here 91.8 lakh or 18.2 percent of the population has been vaccinated.
Situation changing in other countries as well
Apart from this, if we look at states like Russia and Bangladesh, the situation has started deteriorating here too. When Corona was at peak, 28 thousand cases were coming to Russia every day, now there are 25 thousand cases. Similarly, there were 7 thousand cases in Bangladesh at the time of peak, now more than 13 thousand new cases are being reported daily.
The most worrying thing is that new cases have increased again after the start of vaccination. Whereas a total of more than 349 crore people have been vaccinated worldwide. After the corona epidemic, companies are making more than 100 vaccines worldwide. The aim is to quickly vaccinate people and save them from corona.
Many vaccines including Moderna, Pfizer, AstraZenca are being administered to people all over the world. More than 160 million population of America has taken both the doses. Both doses of the vaccine have been administered to 48.8% of the country’s population. Apart from this, 13.6 percent of Russia, 38.5 percent of France and 57 percent of people in Israel have been vaccinated.
More deaths this week than last week
This week compared to last week which saw more than 55,000 deaths. The number of reported cases globally now exceeds 186 million and the death toll is over 4 million. Corona cases in the world have increased to 18.82 crores. Whereas more than 40.5 lakh people have died due to this epidemic.
On June 21, 3,59,800 new cases were found worldwide, while on July 14, this figure increased to 4,17,163. According to a report, in recent months, the way vaccination rates increased in Europe and North America, there was a steady decline in new cases and deaths. But cases are increasing rapidly in many countries of Europe and America. In the past, cases have come to the fore in countries like Bangladesh, Myanmar.
Decreasing in America, cases increasing elsewhere
According to the latest data from WHO, this week, all regions except the US have registered an increase in new cases. But here too, after the decline in cases, it has started increasing again. The number of new cases per day has been doubling in the last three weeks. The fast-spreading delta variant is attributable to reduced vaccination rates and crowds gathered in July. According to data from Johns Hopkins University, cases of Kovid-19 had increased to an average of 23,600 by this Monday from 11,300 on June 23. However, the number of deaths has come down by 11%.
According to the CSSE, the US remains the most affected country in the world with 33,946,217 cases and 608,104 deaths. India ranks second in terms of infection with 30,946,074 cases. Countries like Greece, Turkey, Syria recorded the highest growth (25%). This is followed by a 20% increase in the European region. This week the African region has the lowest number of cases compared to last week, but there has been a 50% increase in the number of deaths compared to this case. The South-East Asia region also recorded a significant increase in the number of deaths.
There is no uniform pattern in corona infected countries
Looking at the corona infected countries, it is understandable that not all countries have the same pattern. Where some countries clearly have a third wave. Whereas Brazil and Colombia, where the daily infection rate is high, this is not the case. There is also no similarity between the peak of cases in many wave countries like US, UK, Turkey.
WHO’s big concern about Africa
The WHO has warned that the third wave of coronavirus in Africa could worsen as new and rapidly spreading variants increase the risk of infection. New cases in Africa last week surpassed the highest number of cases recorded in a second wave in January this year. The WHO says more than 251,000 new cases were recorded in the week ending July 4, making it “the worst pandemic week ever”. “The worst is yet to come as the fast-moving third wave is gaining momentum and new ground,” says Matshidiso Moeti, WHO’s regional director for Africa.
What will be the effect of increasing corona in the world on India
Corona has imposed the most restrictions on movement worldwide. Due to which the workers, workers and students are facing the most problems. The Directorate General of Civil Aviation has banned international flights till July 31. Its term was earlier expiring in June. A very limited number of flights are being operated on international routes. In such a situation, due to the increase in the cases of corona, these restrictions are likely to be extended even further. Thousands of students and job seekers are waiting to go to UK and US. But due to the lack of improvement in the situation, due to not being able to go there right now, many difficulties are being faced.
The government has started the facility of linking the vaccine certificate in their passport for those going abroad. However, this facility is currently only for the Kovishield vaccine. Until Kovax is not recognized by WHO, there is a problem for those who have taken Covax dosage. A “Coronavirus Commissioner” has been appointed for the first time to oversee arrivals at Israel’s main international airport. The government has already postponed plans to reopen the country to vaccinated tourists. There is a possibility that other countries can also appoint coronavirus officers to investigate corona at airports like this.
what is delta variant
This variant was first found in the UK. This variant was found in India in the month of October. After destroying India, this variant has now reached the US, UK, Indonesia, Israel, Russia, Iran, Colombia and many countries in Asia and Africa. The Delta variant infects 50% more than the B.1.1.7 variant. The delta variant can also affect people who have already had the infection.
