Worldwide, the number of coronavirus patients has increased to over 2.15 lakh. In some countries, this epidemic has returned again. There has been a stir since the arrival of new Corona patients in South Korea and New Zealand. Meanwhile, even bigger alerts are coming from American experts. According to a New York Times report, according to public health experts, the number of cases of Covid-19 may increase in winter, along with it, people should be ready to face the seasonal flu. Scientists are calling this situation ‘pandemic’.
More pressure on patients
According to experts, now the pressure is high on the patients of Covid-19 in hospitals. In such a situation, mild flu season can completely spoil the balance of hospitals. He says that flu is common in the winter season anyway and a large number of patients arrive in hospitals. But this time the beds of the hospitals are already full. In such a situation, if the number of patients increases, then there can be a big problem in front of the hospitals.
Another problem is that even the symptoms of Covid-19 and seasonal flu, people will be afraid even in the event of seasonal flu and will come to the hospital with the fear of Covid-19. In such a situation, the congestion situation will increase in hospitals. People were given ‘flu shots’ to avoid seasonal flu, which is not possible this year. This will increase the number of patients rapidly.
Scientists upset with ‘pandemic’
Scientists around the world are upset with this ‘pandemic’. Concern about this situation is so great that authorities around the world are insisting on flu shots before they are available in clinics and doctors’ offices. According to Robert Redfield, director of the US Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), we are asking big companies to campaign to give ‘flu shots’. At least make them available to their employees. The CDC has been giving 5 lakh doses to hospitals every year, but this year 9.3 million flu shots have already been ordered in the wake of apprehensions.
American Corona Expert Doctor Anthony Fauchi has also advised people to take flu shots. He said that through this you will be free from the danger of one of the two respiratory diseases at the same time.
British PM launched a campaign
In Britain, Prime Minister Boris Johnson is launching his own flu-shot campaign. Last month, he labelled those who opposed the flu vaccine and announced the biggest rollout of shots in the country. He said that this is the only way through which the fight against the epidemic can continue. Australia started such ‘flu shot’ campaign in many areas of the country only in April. In the US, there is a vaccine for children in nursery school, but due to the closure of the school, vaccination could not be done this time.
According to the CDC, between 39 million and 56 million cases of seasonal flu can be reported in the US this year. About 7 lakh 40 thousand people may need a hospital, while 62 thousand deaths may also occur from it.
