Maharashtra on Sunday, reported 10,792 new Covid cases taking the total number of active cases to 2.21 lakhs. So far the Maharshtra is worst performing State in India with about 22% of total cases reported in India. 730 case fatalities have been reported in the past 24 hours. Of these, nearly 80% are concentrated in ten States/UT. More than 25% of new fatalities reported are from Maharashtra (187 deaths). When it comes to responding to the Corona virus of Wuhan, Maharashtra seems to be unable to lagging far behind the poorest States of India, the ubiquitous Bihar. Let us see some parameters.

Patients remain infected for several weeks and months after being diagnosed with the corona virus and it is very difficult for experts to predict how long patients will feel fully healthy. Patients who have minor symptoms of infection soon recover from the disease, but elderly and severely infected patients sometimes take three to four months to recover.
The World Health Organization says that patients usually recover from two weeks to six weeks. According to a US study, 20 percent of patients with mild symptoms who were not hospitalized were those with symptoms of the disease at least two weeks after becoming infected.
According to a study conducted in Italy, 87 percent of the hospitalized patients had symptoms of infection, including fatigue and trouble breathing, even two months after being infected. Dr. Khalilah Gates, a specialist in lung diseases in Chicago, said that many of his patients still have symptoms of the disease four months after becoming infected.
He said that it is very difficult to tell when a patient will feel completely healthy. Infectious disease specialist Dr. Jay Warke said, “You may have recovered from a serious illness, but you have not necessarily recovered completely.”

Have we prepared ourselves to live and face Corona without a vaccine?
There are many virus which human being are facing without any vaccine. Hepatitis B and HIV are two such viral infections for which there are no vaccines. The Suputnik V vaccine is now a suspect because it produces symptoms as severe as the infection itself. The Oxford Vaccine is also in doubts as two patients have developed neurological problems and its trial is on hold in USA. So what will happen? Will there be a vaccine? Let us analyze various factors.
What is Corona Virus:

Scientists claimed a major breakthrough in the war with Corona.
Scientists at the University of British Columbia have discovered an organic molecule 10 times smaller than an antibody protein that has the potential to destroy even the smallest fraction of the virus, scattered in the body. This study has been published in the journal Cell.
A team of researchers from the University of British Columbia, Canada, created a drug using the smallest molecule, named AB8. Leading researcher Sriram Subrahmayam and his team found that mice and hamster organisms could be protected from the corona virus through the AB8 drug and successful treatment of infected organisms.
Subrahmayam says that a drug prepared with the smallest molecule can not only be better transmitted to the body’s tissues, but it can also be entered into the body through many subtle pathways that are not usually administered. . This will make it easier to completely destroy the virus present in any part of the body.
No negative effect
Researcher Subrahmayam said that this drug does not bind to human cells, which is a sign of absence of the negative effect of the drug in people. AB-8 can not only be used as a Kovid-19 key therapy but can also be used as a prevention to keep people away from the virus.
Researchers say that treating the patient with AB8 may give better results in the event of low plasma availability. This drug is successful in completely eliminating the virus in the body which can be considered as an alternative to plasma therapy.
Parliament of India started functioning today after testing all members for Chinese Virus. Out of about 800 MPs, 25 members have tested positive without any symptoms. These include two members of Parliament from Delhi namely Meenakshi Lekhi and Pravesh Sahib Singh.
This number of 25 MPs, is in addition to other MPs and Ministers who were infected and have recovered including Home Minister of India.
ICMR has revealed a report of a Serological Survey. Aap per this report, till May, around 64 lakh people in the country became infected with Coronavirus. This survey was conducted at the national level for the first time. By May, 0.73% of adults i.e. 64 lakh (64,68,388) people have been estimated to have been exposed to the corona virus. From the survey, it was estimated that there were 82–130 infections in India to confirm every single case of corona by RT-PCR test. It has also been found from the sero survey that about 44 lakh people of the villages have been infected with corona.
According to ICMR, these surveys were conducted between May 11 and June 4. Samples of 4, 28,000 adults were taken during this period. These surveys were conducted in 70 districts of 21 states.
Real Number of Infections in India
Presently there are 4.7 million infected patients in India. As with the parliamentarians, there are numerous people who are infected but have no symptoms. Like all Chinese products, this virus has also lost its efficiency. If we apply the aforesaid report of ICMR and multiply 4.5 million with 100 the answer would be 145 million which exceed the population of India.
