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 .

MODI ANNOUNCES 20 LAKH CRORE RESCUE PACKAGE

download (4)

 In a televised address nation before the end of 3.0 national lockdown , India’s prime minister, Narendra Modi, announced an economic rescue package of 20 Lakh carore{ $260 billion}  which is aproxx 10% of  Indian GDP  for a nation that, although relatively successful in controlling coronavirus infections, has been left economically devastated.

The Rs 20 lakh crore economic stimulus announced by the Prime Minister takes into account the measures that the government and RBI have already rolled out in the form of Rs 1.7 lakh crore in cash and free food and Rs 5.24 lakh crore in liquidity support. That pegs the new stimulus at Rs 13.1 lakh crore, or 6.5% of GDP, which will likely come in the form of loan guarantees for MSMEs, wage support for MSME workers, aid for migrant labourers, tax sops to make local production competitive, tax cuts to spur spending and support for construction and housing sectors. The total package at 10% of GDP puts India in league with likes of Germany, Sweden and France and way ahead of Spain, Italy, the UK and China.

Prime minister  was short on details but said the relief package, which amounts to around 10 percent of India’s gross domestic product and was larger than expected, would help all classes, from farmers and migrant laborers to big businesses.

He urged Indians to become more economically self reliant  which means using of indian made product more than international product giving a example of mahatma Gandhi ji as he campaign to boycott British textiles and buy Indian cloth instead.

“Be vocal about local!”  prime minester said . “Who can stop us from becoming a self-reliant India?”

He further said  that India can make many products locally, boasting that the country went from manufacturing almost no PPE kits or protective masks before the coronavirus pandemic to now making hundreds of thousands each day.

As so long national lockdown of a 1.3 billion people pandemic have hit its economy especially hard, leaving millions of poor people unemployed. All across the country, out-of-work laborers have been pouring from cities and returning to rural areas where they hope to rely on family members to survive.

As Prime minister promised that in the coming days India’s finance ministry would reveal all the details of fund and who will get benifit from this package, migrant laborers , farmers, honest taxpayers, MSMEs  (micro small and medium enterprises ) and cottage industry.were  among the people who would be helped by the stimulus plan.

 As 3.0 National lockdown will end on 17 may , Mr. prime minister didn’t directly address  that national lockdown  further extend, but he said that during the next phase of the lockdown,rules would change. And he hinted that the lockdown might be eased.

“All the experts are telling us that corona will be part of our lives for a long period,” Mr. Prime minister said in his half-hour speech. “But we cannot allow our lives to revolve around corona, corona, corona.” He urged Indians to continue wearing masks and maintaining social distance.

India has reported around 70,000 corona virus infections and 2,300 deaths. For a country of 1.3 billion people, that is a very low as compared with other richer countries. Though testing is lower here as well, which may mean the infection rate is higher than reported, many public health officials have said India has done a good job so far in containing the virus.

merlin_172300227_adb43004-a1c7-4712-b39c-ebf9676a2743-jumbo - Copy

Sixteen migrant workers were crushed to death by a freight train in central India  in Aurangabad Mahrestra as they were traveling home, becase of lack of food and work due to national lockdown , in covid-19 pendamic, In  tragic incident yesterday, a train ran over 16 migrant workers while they were sleeping on a railway track near Aurangabad, Maharashtra. The workers hailed from Madhya Pradesh and were travelling back to their hometowns on foot along the railway tracks. “We all from Madhya Pradesh and we work for SRG Company, Jalna. We were going to our native villages. We left our rooms at 7 PM on Thursday and reached the incident spot at around 4 AM in the morning on Friday.” said bye a eyewitness who is hospitlized .

Just the day before, a diaster at a plastics factory that was reopening after a lockdown killed 11 people and sickened hundreds. Officials said that workers at a plant owned by the South Korean industrial giant LG had mishandled a valve on a styrene tank that sent a cloud of deadly vapor floating over the outskirts of Visakhapatnam, a city of several million people, that left people choking to death in the streets.

The moral of those stories for the Indian government, which imposed one of the world’s strictest lockdowns six weeks ago and is now trying to restart its economy, and did’t focous on the safty major in openieng of factory , bussiness, and all .

 

Many of the country’s struggles in the pandemic — including mass internal migration, unsafe workplaces and industrial disasters — have been amplified by the lockdown and the subsequent move to reopen businesses. And with millions of its citizens working overseas to send money home, and many of their lives now destroy by the pandemic, India is also undertaking a giant repatriation effort.

The gas leak and train incident wasn’t the only accident as Indian businesses began resuming operations. On Wednesday, half a dozen worker who had not been given safety gear  wear hospitaliz after inhaling dangerous fumes at a paper mill in Chhattisgarh, that was trying to restart operations after weeks of inactivity. And on Thursday, several hundred miles to the south, in Tamil Nadu, a boiler exploded at a thermal power plant, badly burning several workers.

The migrants killed on Friday along the railway tracks were  depressing wave. In recent days, India’s government, which initially blocked migrants from moving state to state, has eased the lockdown rules to allow some to travel. Over all, Mr. Modi’s government has been decided to give some relief in the lockdown, deeply concerned about the economic hit on a country by the so long national lockdown .

The news of the migrants’ deaths disturbed an Indian public already rattled by the accident at the LG plastics factory. investigations indicate that the accident was caused by a leak in a styrene tank that had been neglected for weeks.

Officials said that dangerous pressure had been building in the tank during the lockdown and that factory workers had improperly opened a valve, releasing a huge cloud of toxic vapor.

On Friday, police officers put up more barricades around the factory and were not letting anyone near it. With many of the evacuated villagers being housed in government shelters, the entire area bore a deserted look. this incident focused people to remember painful memories of industrial accident in Bhopal in 1984 in which a pesticide plant released toxic gas that killed more than 4000 people in Bhopal.

 Apart from indesterial incident and train incident number of fatal car accidents is way down — no surprise, perhaps, given that roads across India were deserted until this week till modi govt. give a little relief in  lockdown. A recent report found that 140 people died in car accidents nationwide from March 24 to May 3 — an average of 3.4 deaths per day, as of due to national lockdown other incident like killing, snatching, curreption , burning of people  decreased .
