In this current form of the disease, the cases of infection are neither increasing rapidly nor decreasing suddenly. Talking to the media, Professor Gautam Menon in the Department of Physics and Biology at Ashoka University said, “Even a small fraction of these cases can lead to death. This will be a new situation for which we should be prepared.”
cannot always be vigilant
Studying cases of infection since the beginning of the pandemic Menon said, “The world cannot always run in a state of extreme alertness all the time.” More than two years after COVID-19 was declared an international emergency, the World Health Organization is now in a position to say whether the end of the COVID-19 pandemic is near.
Menon said, “It is definitely a sign that a bigger phase of the pandemic is coming to an end but we also have to keep in mind that this ‘end’ How do we interpret it? Epidemiologist Ramanan Laxminarayan agreed with this and said that as long as people are getting vaccinated, the risk of Kovid is low, so they should not worry about the epidemic. He said that, “Vaccination and the large part of the population affected have reduced the risk of hospitalization and death.”
What the WHO said
WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly meeting on Thursday that, “We have spent two and a half years in a long dark tunnel and we are now just seeing a ray of light at the end of that tunnel. We have succeeded.” He said, “But there is still a long way to go and the tunnel is still dark. If we do not take precautions, then there are many obstacles ahead, by colliding with which we can make mistakes. ”Tedros said in a press conference last week that the world is now in a better position regarding the end of the epidemic. He said that, “we have not reached there yet but the end seems near.”
