The second wave of corona infection in India has caused a furore. So far (India Corona Cases) in the country, till April 23, 2021, 1 lakh 89 thousand 544 people have died due
Talking to a private channel, Dr. Randeep Guleria said that lockdown must be imposed in areas where the positivity rate has crossed 10 percent. Dr. Randeep Guleria has suggested this formula at a time when there is a tsunami of new cases in the second wave of corona virus. At the same time, it is seen that India’s medical system collapses.
‘Necessary to break the chain of transition’
Guleria admitted that the country’s healthcare system was paying the price for the government’s failure to predict the outbreak of the virus. More infectious variants and mutants of the virus are spreading the infection faster. Experts say that to reduce the burden of fast-growing active patients, it is necessary to break the chain of infection. In the middle of March, daily cases of corona were around 25 thousand in India, which has now increased to 3.5 lakhs.
Believe me, we need to do two-way work. The first is immediate work on improving healthcare infrastructure — whether in hospital beds, medicine or oxygen. Second – a reduction in the number of cases. We cannot continue such a large number of active cases.

Two-way war will have to be done on Corona – Guleria
Dr. Randeep Guleria clearly stated that we have to work on a dual strategy. The first is that all types of facilities should be provided for treatment in hospitals and elsewhere as soon as possible. The shortage of beds, medicines and oxygen in the hospital will have to be overcome rapidly. The second would be to focus on reducing new cases of corona infection. We cannot bear the burden of so many active patients for a long time.

‘Coronary chain breaking can only result in new cases’
Dr. Randeep Guleria said that to overcome the infection, we have to focus on the areas with higher positivity rate. If it is the highest then we will have to create a container zone. Even lockdown will have to be imposed. Only then can the chain of infection be broken and new cases brought down. Significantly, the number of patients who are undergoing active cases in India has increased to 25.5 lakhs. There is tremendous pressure on hospitals and medical workers.
The UK variant was not projected to grow so fast. The first wave was slow… we had time to raise everything – hospital beds, medicine and everything

What did Guleria say about the oxygen crisis?
Hospitals in Delhi have been pleading for oxygen for the last three days. Guleria said that the oxygen crisis in the capital is truly serious. We have to see how to divide the resources. In states where oxygen is high, it can be sourced from there.

‘Remadesiveer does not reduce the risk of death’
These days, there has been an uproar in the country across Remedisvir injections. There are also reports of its black marketing from many cities. Although Dr. Guleria says that these injections can only prevent people from going to the hospital, it does not reduce the death rate. It is not a life saving drug, nor does it reduce death.
