Why Isolation Doesn’t Reduce COVID-19 Incidence

The coronavirus is a deadly virus that has shaken the pillars of the world and is still very active around the world. It has already spread steadily in countries such as the United States of America, Spain, France, Italy and many others. Now it is starting to take its toll on India, the world’s second-largest populous country. There were concerns that if the effect of the Coronavirus is the same as in other countries, then 20% of the entire population of India will die. India has a total population of 1.3 billion and 40% of the 1.3 billion is about 25 million, so it is appalling to think that 55 million people have died due to the virus. This could destroy the entire country.

Fortunately, the impact of the coronavirus in India has not been nearly as fatal. So far, only 96,000 people have been affected by the disease, and the death toll stands at 3,029. Another positive point should be noted: the recovery rate in India is higher; of the 96,000 injured, 36,824 have already recovered and have been sent home.

The researchers found that the type of virus that hit India is comparatively weaker than the virus that hit other countries. The coronavirus that hit India is type B, which is a weaker version and less dangerous compared to type A and C viruses. But researchers and medical experts have found that this type B virus has every potential to mutate and transform into a type A or C, which could definitely have devastating consequences for the country. Another study found that weather conditions in India play a huge role in limiting the spread of this deadly coronavirus. The coronavirus is known to need cold weather to survive for a longer period, but much of India has a warm and hot climate. Hence, it limits the rapid growth of the deadly virus. It was noticed that after the announcement of quarantine in India, the number of reported cases increased every day.

India is currently undergoing a fourth round of quarantines, but the number of cases reported every day is on the rise. This is a big concern, and there was news that the number of tests done every day was very low in the past. Consequently, fewer positive cases were recorded. Now, over the past three weeks, the number of daily tests has increased, so the number of cases reported every day is higher. Therefore, we can say that more tests identify more cases; tests are the only way a country can understand its real position in this pandemic situation.

Between blockages, liquor stores opened for two to three days, and a huge number of people went to all these stores. This may be the reason for the increase in the number of cases, as the virus can spread many times over. This is a difficult situation for the country, and it is becoming more and more difficult to fight this deadly virus. On May 17, hours after the fourth round of isolation was announced, it was found that there was a spike in 5,567 cases in 24 hours, the highest recorded spike to date.
