New delhi date. 7: The results of the lockdown will be terrible, the World Health Organization scientist has warned.
While India is facing another wave of Corona virus, several states have imposed various restrictions like weekend lockdown, night curfew. Discussions are also underway in many places for a complete lockdown. At the moment, World Health Organization chief scientist Dr Soumya Swaminathan has said of the lockdown that the results could be dire. At the same time, they have emphasized the role of the people in controlling other epidemics. At this time they also discussed the dose of the vaccine.
"We have to think about the third wave and face the second wave until enough people are vaccinated," said Dr Swaminathan. There could be many other waves in this epidemic. The WHO recommends an 8-12 week interval between two doses of the Covishield vaccine.
"Currently, children are not advised to be vaccinated," Swaminathan said. The gap between the two doses can be extended to 8-12 weeks. WHO Regional Director Dr Poonam Khetripal also emphasized the need for a vaccine. On the occasion of World Health Day on April 6, he said that a new wave is spreading across the region. It is important to try not to speed up the vaccine.
What is special is that about 26 lakh doses of vaccine are given daily in India. America is ahead of India in this regard. Here an average of 3 million doses are given daily. Discussions are ongoing regarding the lockdown. Even last year, there were several hotspots in Pune at the time of lockdown. The figures rose again when the lockdown was partially lifted. Even the 10-day lockdown did not help then. The statistics were steadily rising.
The virus spread in small groups due to community transmission at the time of lockdown, when the lockdown is removed it will spread rapidly as people rush after the stress of lockdown. Cases of coronary heart disease have been on the rise since early March.
