Covid positive cases declining, 2nd wave not over yet: Dr Hardeep Singh

SRINAGAR, JULY 15(KINS): In view of decrease in number of Covid positive cases, the medical practitioners have warned against resorting to lackadaisical attitude vis-à-vis adherence of Covid Appropriate Behaviour (CAB), stating that it this can lead to inception of 3rd wave.

Prepare for the greatest experience after eating a nutritious breakfast. You will travel over some of the highest passes in the world on your adventure, and you will be greeted by ever-changing vistas of the desolate landscape. Stop at the café on Khardung-La Pass, the highest all-season motorable road in the world, and take in the scenery; you'll feel as though you're on top of the world. Upon leaving Khardung-la, the terrain changes to a white sand desert as you approach the Nubra Valley, which is home to the Nubra Sand Dunes. Visit the Diskit Monastery, the oldest and biggest monastery in Ladakh, which also contains a sizable Buddha statue, if time permits.

“Currently on an average SHMS, Hospital admits eight to ten covid patients”, said Dr Hardeep Singh, Professor of Medicine, Government Medical College (GMC) Srinagar while stating that the 2nd Covid wave has not ended yet, although its severity and number of Positive cases have slumped.

Dr Singh said that the change in the behavior of people regarding the observance of CAB and related SOPs is highly apprehensive. He asked people not to violate CAB besides not to lower the guard as 2nd Covid wave continues to infect people.

He advised people to wear face masks, maintain social distance at every place, use sanitizers and avoid gathering or rush. He also impressed on maintaining proper ventilation at home and isolation of infected members in a family.

While cautioning against inappropriate behavior, he said disregard to SOPs will be very dangerous as it will help new emerging covid variants to spread and infect people.

He said new wave can emerge at any time and the non-observance of SOPs provides time to virus for mutation and formation of new variants. The mutation increases infection and contagious power of the virus which may increase the chances of death of an infected person.

“If people follow Covid protocol, then the third wave can be avoided”, said Dr Hardeep.

He further said that double dose vaccination is a defense against covid infection. “Any person who is fully vaccinated has the least chance of getting ill with corona virus” he said and added that if any such person gets infected still the patient has nothing to worry as those patients will recover at home.

Dr Singh asked people to get vaccinated to defeat the virus and save precious lives. (KINS)
