New Delhi: A United Nations report states that 2,40,000 people died in a deadly wave of the delta form of Kovid-19 in India between April and June 2021. Because of this, the economic recovery was hampered and similar situations may arise in the near term. The United Nations World Economic Situation and Prospects (WESP) 2022 Report also states that the death toll and economic losses are expected to rise again due to new waves of infection with the highly contagious Omicron variant of Kovid-19. .
“In India, a deadly wave of delta-type infections killed 240,000 people between April and June and hampered economic recovery,” the report said. Similar situation may arise in near time. Liu Genmin, Under-Secretary-General of the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs, said, “Without a coordinated and sustained global approach to control COVID-19, this pandemic will continue to pose the greatest risk to the inclusive and sustainable growth of the global economy.” .’
Amidst rising cases of the new variant Omicron of the corona virus, EU experts have said that this spread is moving the Kovid epidemic towards endemic (common and regular disease). Meanwhile, US infectious disease expert Dr. Fauci said that despite the record number of infected, the country has reached the threshold of living with Corona, where Kovid-19 will be a manageable disease.
“Nobody knows when we’ll be at the end of this COVID tunnel, but we’ll be there,” said Marco Kevaleri, head of vaccine strategy at the European Medicines Agency. Natural immunity will be achieved. We are rapidly moving towards a direction that will be close to endemicity. However, it is still at its peak and it requires caution.”
