India Against Covid: The Fight Continues

India Against Covid: The Fight Continues

Almost all of us have heard the terms of countering, protection and vaccination probably more in the previous year than in the whole century. It has been more than a year since the novel Covid case was reported in late 2019. Even the well developed countries have failed to contain and control the disease spread amongst their population.

Today, India is facing a second wave of the pandemic with the significantly more severely strengthened new strains of the virus emerging every day. It must be taken into consideration that the previous strain of the virus which managed to stop the world was not very effective in temperate and tropical countries like India. But this new variant of the virus has adapted to our lifestyle and environment and thus has become more lethal than ever before.

Unfortunately, we have managed to get yourself within the hands of a 20-nanometer micro organism.  Various researches are being conducted for the cause of this sudden spread. Most of the researchers have identified the Peltzman Effect as one of the major causes of work. In layman terms, the Peltzman Effect is identified as the behavioural phenomena that after the perception of safety increases, risk-taking behaviour also increases, leading to adverse outcomes. 

In March 2020, when India went into Covid-19 lockdown compelled people to take the risk of the sickness and disease truly. Close to a year later, pandemic’s underhand effects on professional and economic growth started being counter acted by the massess. With business areas opening up and the impatient attitude of the ‘men in power’ to get things in ‘routine’ to vanquish the financial setbacks,  precautions had seemingly taken the back seat as people slackened with its implementation.

In like manner, it has now gotten crucial for change a part of our observations like, "Ignorance is Bliss", "Don't think a great deal", "It's all the political arrangement", "Once immuned always immuned”, etc 

Such statements, perspectives and beliefs ought to be changed as of right now. It is time that we be remarkably careful and mindful of our surroundings. Avoiding thinking about a problem never really helps in defeating it. Surely don’t over-exert yourself with pessimism but do worry about your health. Always remember you have a duty towards yourself as well, fulfill it with full sincerity.

As of now, India has 2 vaccinations open at a mass level: Covaxin by Bharat Biotech, with a feasibility of around 80%, and Covishield by the Serum Institute of India, convincing at generally 60%. 

It should be noticed that a vaccination or the presence of antibodies in your body doesn't guarantee that you will not, at any point, be defiled with the contamination anyway, rather is just a single additional instrument of protection for the body against the disease. 

Moreover, the vaccinated individual may have diminished chances of getting the contamination but can be  a strong carrier of the disease to the un-inoculated person, which can wreck the condition impressively more. 

Thus, while the antibodies do help in coordinating the spread of the infection, three splendid measures are indeed convincing in lessening the peril of contracting Covid-19 — wearing a cover, unremitting hand-washing, and social isolating, ought to be followed reliably. 

All in all, don't be crippled or centered around the remote possibility that you or any of your known has been tested positive and be depressed about it. Do review, the fight is against the virus and not the humans, people have recovered from this ruinous disease with confidence and care from others. 

All things considered, the gathering of Rus Education petitions God for all its ardent partners, students, parents, guardians and team members to be safe and healthy and overcome this period of crises with faith and optimism.
