Corona has been plagued by epidemics for almost a year and a half around the world. The virus was first identified in December 2019 in Wuhan, China. So far, the tiny invisible virus has spread to 222 countries and territories around the world. It has affected more than 16 crore people in the world. Corona’s death toll exceeded 3.5 million a week ago. The death toll is now approaching 36 lakh households. As coronary infections decrease in one region, they increase in another. In other words, there are no signs of corona termination at present. Rather, it is emerging in a new form.
A scientist in the United States has described the coronavirus as a ‘polymorphic virus’. In other words, the virus is constantly changing its form. There was a movie in Bangladesh in the sixties and seventies, called ‘So many forms in one body’. Coronavirus can be called such a polymorphism. Thousands of mutations have occurred since the virus first appeared in 2019, according to various studies. However, five types or variants of the coronavirus have caused global concern. These are more contagious and deadly. The first type of coronavirus is identified in the United Kingdom, the second in South Africa, the third in Brazil and the fourth in India. The fifth type or variant of coronavirus was caught in Vietnam last Saturday. Scientists and health experts have identified it as a ‘hybrid variant’ of coronavirus. For this hybrid, It is a combination of Indian and UK variants. Each variant is more contagious than the other. Such as the coronavirus type in the UK, South Africa and Brazil, which is a more deadly Indian type. Doctors identify it as a type of anxiety. Due to such reasons, India is now in a precarious situation. The number of Kovid-19 victims in the country stands at 28 million. Three and a quarter million deaths. Even a few days ago, an average of four and a half thousand people died every day. An average of four lakh people have been infected every day. Currently, the number of victims has halved. However, three and a half thousand deaths are happening every day. This variant of India has spread to different countries of the world. However, this variant has become a cause of fear for the neighboring countries. The rapid spread of Indian type in Nepal has already caused disaster in the country. Bangladesh has closed its border with India for more than a month. Still Indian Could not be saved from such hands. Seven people were initially identified as infected with the Indian coronavirus. They came from India. At present, the Indian type of social transition has also started in the country. A number of people have recently been spotted in Chapainawabganj, they are Indian type infected.
Dr. Mushtaq Hossain, Adviser, IEDCR, said that three types of corona patients have been identified in Bangladesh: United Kingdom, South Africa and India. In other words, three harmful types are active in Bangladesh. He said the epidemic could not be stopped. Its speed can be reduced. Bangladesh must adhere to the rules of health. Such border closures and lockdowns have worked quite well. The decision to close the border has been extended for another week keeping in mind the Indian style. If we could not do that, our situation would be like Nepal. Tests have shown that the Indian variant is more contagious than the UK variant. So we need to be more careful.
The coronavirus variant identified in Vietnam on Saturday has been dubbed the ‘hybrid variant’ of the coronavirus. Evidence has been found that this ‘hybrid variant’, which is a combination of Indian and UK variants, is spreading rapidly in the air. Vietnam’s health minister called the variant “extremely dangerous.” Vietnam controlled the coronavirus. But this variant has caused new concerns in the country. There are now 6,600 people infected with Covid-19.
The emergence of ‘black fungus’ in corona patients has also created new panic. Outbreaks appear to be exacerbated during the second wave of Corona in India. In Bangladesh too, patients infected with black fungus have been identified at Bardem Hospital. It is a fungal disease. The disease is not contagious. Symptoms include nasal congestion, nosebleeds, eye pain, swelling of the eyelids, and black spots around the skin of the nose. Thousands of corona patients have fallen victim to black fungus in Delhi. As a result, black fungus has also been declared an epidemic across Delhi.
Coronavirus infections have declined in the United Kingdom, the United States, and Europe, but continue to rise in Asia, especially in South Asia. Reuters reported on Friday that the number of corona patients in six South Asian countries – India, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Nepal, Bhutan and the Maldives – had exceeded 30 million. These six countries account for 16 percent of the world’s corona patients. These six countries account for 10 percent of all deaths in the world. India is at the top in infection and death.
What is the way to survive this epidemic and new types of corona? Hans Kluge, the World Health Organization’s director for Europe, said Saturday The epidemic cannot be controlled unless at least 60 percent of the world’s population is vaccinated. But vaccination of Covid-19 is very slow. Only 53 percent of the 53 countries and territories in Europe have received the first dose of the vaccine. And the European Union (EU) countries have taken the first dose of the vaccine 36 percent. Only 3 percent have been vaccinated in India. Though there is a plan to bring 108 crore people under vaccination in India by next December, doubts have been expressed about its implementation. Bangladesh also has problems with vaccination. In the beginning, Bangladesh made a mistake in its decision to collect vaccines from only one source. Oxford-AstraZeneca contracted to bring 30 million vaccines from Beximco through the Serum Institute of India. But after the arrival of 6 million doses of vaccines, India stopped exporting vaccines to Bangladesh. Currently, there is uncertainty about vaccination in India due to the outbreak of corona infection. In this situation Bangladesh, China and Russia Decides to bring the vaccine from. Bangladesh has received five lakh doses of vaccine from China as a gift. Bangladesh has agreed to import one crore doses of vaccine from China. Each dose will cost ড 10. The vaccine is expected to arrive soon. In addition, one million doses of Pfizer vaccine have arrived from the United States. At the request of Bangladesh, more vaccines are expected to be obtained from the United States. Bangladesh requested 4 million doses of Oxford-Astrageneca vaccine from the United Kingdom. But the UK government has expressed inability. Bangladesh requested to bring 4 million doses of Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine from. But the UK government has expressed inability. Bangladesh requested to bring 4 million doses of Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine from. But the UK government has expressed inability.
As many as 1.7 million people in the country have been given the first dose of the AstraZeneca vaccine, and there is no vaccine. So they need an estrogen vaccine. The vaccine is also more effective in Bangladesh for patients infected with the Indian variant. The Pfizer-Bioentech and Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccines have been shown to be effective for patients infected with the UK variant and the Indian variant, the scientists said. That is why health experts have expressed the view that this vaccine is also necessary for Bangladesh.
