Covid Surge in China Creates Tension In Telangana

Hyderabad, Dec 21 (Maxim News): The rapid rise of corona infections and fatalities in China has brought worry in Telangana and other Indian states who are under the influence of the Covid-19 pandemic for over two years.

The steep increase in daily infections and the projections that at least 10 lakh people will die due to Covid in 2023 in China has also triggered a sense of fear not only among the general public but even among Public Health officials.

After a gap of over two years, people have resumed traveling to countries across the globe in a big way and the ongoing surge of Covid infections in China could have the potential to cause similar Covid waves as were witnessed earlier. Unmitigated spread of the infections could also lead to an emergence of a new variant that could cause fresh waves, health officials here fear.

The worry is that because what happens in China does not stay in China it will spread everywhere. Wuhan was a lesson three years ago. The current Covid spread is not only an unfolding tragedy but also exposes the local population to great risk. Think of the wider implications on public health and global supply chains, Joint Managing Director of Apollo Hospitals Dr. Sangita Reddy, tweeted.

She added, “there is definitely no need to panic over the rise of infections in China. However, having said that, there is no place for inertia. We must act swiftly on our policy regarding air travel to and fro China.”

Geneticists and public health specialists also believe that the uncontrolled spread of Covid infections, which is taking place in China, could also cause a greater risk of the virus evolving and accumulating more mutations.

A senior scientist from the Institute of Genomics and Integrative Biology, New Delhi Dr. Vinod Scaria took to the microblogging site and tweeted ” apart from avoidable deaths that the uncontrolled spread of Covid could cause, there is a greater risk of SARSCoV2 evolving by accumulating more mutations.” (Maxim News)
