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.
After Janta Curfew it is lockdown:
Today 22 March 2020 witnessed a voluntary curfew across India which was unusually successful as people stayed behind doors. In the past when police used to enforce the curfew people would often come out in the inner lanes to gossip. But today it was an absolute curfew. Nobody could be seen on roads anywhere in India. The kind of discipline people have shown is really amazing. Total curfew without any policeman around except at usual pickets.
Now to prevent the spread of infection of Corona virus, various state governments of the country have announced lockdown in 75 districts from tomorrow, on the advice of the Union (central) government. These are the 75 districts where the highest number of corona virus positive patients have been found or deaths due to corona in these districts.
So far, 354 cases of corona virus have been reported in India. So far, 7 deaths have occurred in the country, including the death of two people on Sunday.
Recently a couple was discovered to be suffering from Corona Virus in Jaipur, Rajasthan.
During the treatment of corona infected patients, there are indications that some medicines used in the treatment of HIV are working well on patients with corona.
Lopinavir and ritonavir (HIV) Drugs.
Lopinavir and ritonavir combination drugs were used in the treatment of the couple who came to India from Italy. The couple were found infected with the corona virus in Jaipur and according to the Indian Council of Medical Research, the health of the couple has improved significantly after 14 days of treatment.
