why world losing the battle against a virus ?

In the past century, the largest gains in human health and life expectancy have come from public-health interventions, not medical ones. Clinical medicine — treating individual patients with medication and procedures — has registered enormous gains. Hepatitis C is now curable; so are many childhood cancers. Cutting-edge gene therapies are curing rare genetic disorders, and new technology is making surgeries of every kind safer. But even stacked against those triumphs, public health — the policies and programs that prevent entire communities from getting sick in the first place — is still the clear winner. “It’s saved the most lives by far, for the least amount of money, but why in avablity of so advance health tech still humans are losing the battle against a virus (COVID-19).

This covid 19 became a one of the biggest challenge for human kind , after so long shutdown of entire world , almost all country economy collapes , nearly 15 million infected and 602 k death due to covid -19 still their is no conformed cure/ vaccine. with 1st case in China (in wuhan city ) in december 2019 and sepred across the World with increase in multiple rate of pesents and became a world pendamic.

what is COVID-19 ?

On 31 December 2019, the World Health Organization (WHO) got reports from health authorities in China of a cluster of viral pneumonia cases of unknown cause in Wuhan, Hubei,and an investigation was launched at the start of January 2020. On 30 January, the WHO declared the outbreak a 

On 31 December 2019, the  World Health Organization (WHO) got reports from health authorities in China of a clster cluster of viral pneumonia cases of unknown cause in Wuhan, Hubei,and an investigation was launched at the start of January 2020. On 30 January, the WHO declared the outbreak a Public Health Emergency of International Concern (PHEIC)—7,818 cases confirmed globally, affecting 19 countries in five WHO regions.(PHEIC)—7,818 cases confirmed globally, affecting 19 countries in five WHO regions.

Several early infected people had visited Huanan Seafood Wholesale Market; the virus is therefore thought to be of zoonotic origin.The virus that caused the outbreak is known as SARS‑CoV‑2, a newly discovered virus closely related to bat coronaviruses, pangolin coronaviruses, and SARS-CoV. The scientific consensus is that COVID-19 has a natural origin. The probable bat-to-human infection may have been among people processing bat carcasses and guano in the production of traditional Chinese medicines.

The earliest known person with symptoms was later discovered to have fallen ill on 1 December 2019, and that person did not have visible connections with the later wet market cluster. Of the early cluster of cases reported that month, two-thirds were found to have a link with the market. On 13 March 2020, an unverified report from the South China Morning Post suggested a case traced back to 17 November 2019 (a 55-year-old from Hubei) may have been the first person infected.

The WHO recognised the spread of  COVID-19 as apandemic on 11 March 2020as Italy, Iran, South Korea, and Japan reported surging cases. The total numbers outside China quickly surpassed China’s.

world Health system fail ?

Covid-19 is a catastrophic failure of public health leadership. Highly-qualified people — from the World Health Organisation, the US Centres for Disease Control, the US National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, and eminent epidemiologists from institutions such as Stanford, Harvard, and Johns Hopkins — are offering regular updates on TV about what needs to be done. While viewers appreciate their expertise and measure of calm, billions around the world are now impacted by their collective failure to act and prevent this epidemic from happening in the first place.

Bill Gates, in a famous TED talk in 2015, predicted that the world is totally unprepared for a pandemic, and warned that countries have to mobilise. “Today, the greatest risk of global catastrophe doesn’t look like this,” he said, showing the image of a mushroom cloud created by a nuclear explosion. “Instead, it looks like this,” he said, pointing to a picture of the influenza virus. Why were public health officials not paying attention to Gates?

Every major country has a generous, dedicated budget for public health. Public health officials have been studying epidemics and pandemics for hundreds of years. After all, more people have died because of contagion from diseases like the plague or the Spanish flu than from war, and these experts have been combing through troves of data, often with the help of supercomputers, to find cures or vaccines for infectious diseases. Despite all the resources at their disposal, they are now saying that a Covid-19 cure is months away, and a fully-tested vaccine after clinical trials, perhaps a year and a half away. Didn’t they see something like this coming at all?

INDIAN HEALTH SYSTEM COLLAPSE ?

With the India reporting over 10,000 cases a day, most hospitals are running at full capacity and beds are filling up fast. At present 2/3 of the Indian hospital are working only on COVID-19 treatment and other patent are suffer lack of ability of hospital over the more than 1.3 billion people India only expend 1.3% of GDP which is lower than the average expenditure by countries clubbed as among the “poorest” country of the world.

In last 2 month the health care condition is worse in India people are die in search of hospital / treatment in these day many patent are running different different hospital in search of treatment and died on the road due to lack of place in hospital, lack of resourcse are their on hospital , over a huge no of population a limited number of ventilators are available which is very low number.

The total number of coronavirus cases in the India is more than 3 lack and still growing with per day 10,000 average and total number of death 9535, and as of now India is suffering lack of ICU , ventilators. and as per expert it is expected that covid -19 is on peak in last of july .

Estimates suggest approximately 19 lac hospital beds, 95 thousand ICU beds and 48,000 ventilators are available in India
Most of the beds and ventilators in India, are concentrated in seven States – UttarPradesh (14.8%), Karnataka (13.8%), Maharashtra (12.2%), Tamil Nadu (8.1%), WestBengal (5.9%), Telangana (5.2%) and Kerala (5.2%).
• Existing bed capacity is mostly saturated at government hospitals
• Accommodation of influx of COVID 19 patients, will require rapid expansion of current capacity or modifications in admission policy for routine patient care

Indian Infrastructure

In the 2019 Global Health Security Index, which measures pandemic preparedness for countries based on their ability to handle the crisis, India ranked 57, lower than the US at 1, the UK at 2, Brazil at 22, and Italy at 31, suggesting it is more vulnerable to the pandemic than countries that have seen a high number of fatalities so far.

India’s low investment in the health sector, dedicating only 1.3% of its GDP, is now making it vulnerable to COVID-19. It contrasts with other developing countries such as Brazil, which spends 7.5% of its annual GDP on health, Bhutan, which has allocated 3.6%, and Bangladesh, which dedicates 2.2%.

Among developed nations, South Korea has kept its healthcare expenditure at a whopping 8.1%, Japan 10.9%, and the US at 8.5%.

India has a severe shortage of healthcare workers. According to the Health Ministry data released in October last year, there is one doctor for every 11,082 people, which is more than 10 times the doctor-patient ratio that the World Health Organization (WHO). The WHO mandates that the doctor to population ratio should be 1:1,000, while India had a 1:1,404 ratio as of February 2020.

In rural areas, this doctor-patient ratio is as low as 1:10,926 doctors as per National Health Profile 2019.

According to data from the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development available for India for 2017, India has 0.53 beds for 1,000 people compared with 0.87 in Bangladesh, 1.1 in Indonesia, 2.11 in Chile, 2.73 in Turkey, 1.38 in Mexico, 4.34 in China and 8.05 in Russia.

In a recent study, the Center for Disease Dynamics, Economics & Policy (India) and Princeton University said the country currently has 713,986 beds, including 35,699 in intensive care units, and 17,850 ventilators for 1.3 billion people.

Conclusion

The current scenario shows poor planning of health care system in India over the year’s of government’s , over a huge number of population and such a worse condition of health care system ,people across the country suffering due to lack of proper infrastructure, India need to improving the quality of health care at a low level required to focus on large investment in this sector because ” health is wealth” , india need a good policy and a proper implementation .

Impact of COVID-19 on India Business Industry

This is bad time for the entire business world even a small shop owner suffer crises due to this global pendemic . While there’s no slew of tried-and-true best practices for dealing with this global pandemic, the are some business which are going to be changed after covid-19 , these business ideas can help you emerge out as a leader through this crisis.

Moreover, it is equally essential to understand that the concept of the online marketplace comes with a futuristic approach. I truly believe that there will be a solution to this pandemic very soon. The world will be a healthier and safer place once again. And the businesses will be gaining their momentum. but after pendemic their is a new era of doing business, in which internet play a major role for making business easy .

We have been forced to adopt digitalization in our everyday life. These new habits have created new business opportunities but at the cost of huge economic losses. Enterprises had to adopt new normals and smartly diverse their operations. Other industries like tourism, travel, real estate have also been impacted. In these adverse times, the role of decision-makers to implement smart and sustainable business models is very important

1.Education Industry:

The 1st industry which is going to change Education , Children are missing their school/collage , as they have been inside at home for a long period of time. Digital education has experienced new growth in these periods. Many schools have tried different online teaching platforms to fulfill their requirements. The assessment of assignments and taking online exams are the newest challenges these schools are facing. Home tution and coaching centers are out of market , somehow big coaching center able to go online and hardly fulfill requirement and provide material to student because have fewer resources and facilities to avail these tools, but it’s very hard for them too, but small coaching and tution center are out. Their place is taken by some new internet era their is a lot of educational-Tech Platforms like Byju’s, Extra marks, Vedantu etc. are eating up their market.

Besides these, teachers are struggling to make their students understand the concepts. Therefore, recorded videos are frequently being used, which contain more options and animations to represent the concepts. but still it’s not enought for students

2.Health Care\medical Industry:

The most affected industry in the covid -19 is the health care industry.The impact of the coronavirus pandemic and the lockdown it triggered is clearly visible in financial markets. But there is still no clarity on the deeper impact that it is having across businesses and industrial sectors. Here is an impact analysis in healthcare sector.

The healthcare sector is at the epicentre of this unprecedented global pandemic challenge, and the private sector has risen to the occasion, by offering to the government all the support it needs, be it testing support, preparing isolation beds for the treatment of Covid-19 positive patients or deploying equipment and staff in identified nodal hospitals.

Just because of covid -19 all the global health care industry only focous on only COVID-19 , and all the other disease medicen on demand , all hospital are only about to check covid -19, putting on hold of a large number of patient of less harmfull disease , and all clinic are closed . their are also some online site / app’s which are providing home delivery of medicines and home service of doctor , but it’s not fulfill of requirement , and these are very expensive so poor people are not able to get medicine and doctors.

What is the impact on India’s medical devices industry?

  • The medical devices industry has also taken a hit. The country imports consumables, disposables and capital equipment including orthopaedic implants, gloves, syringes, bandages, computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging devices from China. Due to the current crisis in China, the medical device manufacturers across India are finding it difficult to source important raw materials and electronic components from Chinese factories.

3. Self-Care Industry:

This pandemic has shown us the importance of self-care during negative times. We got to know, to lead a stable and efficient life, keeping our mind stable is essential. This has resulted in a boost of self-care content consumption online.

Consumptions for motivational contents, exercises, healthy diets, mind management etc. has increased exponentially. Subscriptions for the online webinars of established trainers has increased hugely.

Minimalist mindset adoption has seen higher growth numbers, which suggests, people now care to stick with essential items than luxuries. We have realised we require a fairly minimal number of items daily and the rest of the items are actually blocking our cupboard spaces.

4. Entertainment Industry:

we miss the cinema halls, a cheers from the crowd and we enjoying the ridiculously priced popcorn looking at the big screen. We are unsure when we can experience this again, as people are preferring to maintain social distances and cinema halls seats can be an easy prop to transmit the virus. Therefore, some yet to be released movies are releasing online, through the partnerships with media streaming applications.

In the covid-19 lock down all shooting , editing , composing etc are closed all artiest are in house thair is no prodction house working, but soon as we expecting end of pendemic and all these start again and we enjoy it. but in this digital era, platforms like Netflix, Amazon prime etc. have capitalised hugely and have become a necessity for many entertainment seekers than a luxury.

Meanwhile, we realised that authentic and valuable contents can win hearts even after a quarter of the century. Mythological series like Ramayan, Mahabharat etc. were adored hugely by everyone, which showed us, true contents can hold the attention of any age group. The nostalgic feeling and throwback to old days kept the TV channels alive.

5.Hospitality Industry:

All Hotels and restaurants have been shut down across globe and in India since last 3-4 months which is hugely impacting the pockets of owners. Many owners had to fire workers to sustain the period, though the future revenue figures are uncertain.

 With leisure and business tourism coming to a standstill because of the Covid-19 pandemic, India’s hospitality sector is facing its biggest crises ever,  pandemic and the containment measures introduced by Governments globally and in India resulted in a severe drop in foreign and domestic travel across the world, in both the business and leisure travel segment. This will leave a lasting impact on the credit profile of airlines and hospitality companies. Globally, hotels have acknowledged the depth of this decline with recovery stated two to three years from now.
