Let’s all seriously follow anti Covid precautions as the situation goes out of hand as indicated by WHO

It is indeed saddening to note that the dreaded pathogen has shown no ray of hope in terms of the disease showing improvement in lessening the numbers of Covid 19 patients nor has it given any fixed or confirmed assurance of the credible anti Covid vaccine coming into being in the near future except mere speculations.

Today’s news is horrible when the world is likely to cross the one million mark of people having died of this dreaded pandemic with United States of America, India and Brazil accounting for the 44% mortalities of the total deaths including more than 17 Milion infections out of the total global three crores .

What is the worst critical situation in the offing is that according to the latest report of HT, the World Health Organisation has predicted of over one million more deaths likely in the future if situation is not controlled effectively thus sending dangerous signals of bad future, allegedly warning world nations, especially US,India and Brazil to enforce the anti Covid regulations n various precautionary measures aggressively come what may.

India has been acknowledging more than 95 thousand Covid 19 cases daily since the last week with the national figure of Covid 19 infections reaching sixty lakhs likely to become the first country of the world keeping US behind if the massive surge in cases are not brought under control aggressively say news reports.

The first country of the world USA which has been topping the list since long has 7.1 million cases with two lakh four thousand fatalities whereas the world shows the total infections to the tune of 33,062, 174 with over 9 lakh 93 thousand mortalities.

This unambiguously means that India which has already beaten Brazil has merely eleven lakhs cases less than US n if the uncontrollable surge continues on daily basis to the tune of over 95 thousand cases or more, India may beat United States of America gaining the first position in terms of Covid 19 infections in the near future, which is definitely a very disturbing trend as compared to China which has come down to merely 90000 cases roughly, an unbelievable news indeed.

However, what is surprising is the fact that few months ago Brazil which was on number two position is today having much much lesser cases merely 4.72 millions with its recovery rate also having improved dramatically leaving the active cases to merely 141 thousand numbers.

Few months ago India was on Eighth or 9 th padestral and Brazil was next to US but today we are on second position likely to beat US keeping in view the uncontrollable infections at the pan India level.

These latest surges, worldwide, suggest Anti Covid vaccines as the only credible solution to this deadly Pandemic which are expected to come to peoples’ rescue in the year 2021, in the first or last quarter, as being given to understand by various news reports with world’s 150 anti Covid 19 candidates on the fast track human trials, out of which about twenty one candidates giving a ray of hope of coming to the Covid 19 patients’ rescue if not all to start with.

India being the largest democracy of the world also foresees at least three anti Covid medicines coming to peoples’ rescue by 2021.

Just two days ago the chief of Serum Institute Poona has asked the India government whether it is ready to invest 80 thousand crore rupees for the new anti Covid vaccine to be injected to 135 crore Indians to get rid of this dreaded pandemic ?
