The Covid 19 pandemic hit the world by the end of the year 2019 and by March 2020, the coronavirus had hit the world. Medical scholars around the globe are stating the fact that this is the worst virus ever in the history of mankind.
New Variants Will Rise, The Pandemic Will Prevail, Warns The WHO Officials
According to the data available with the US Medical agencies, more than 80 million people have been detected with the deadly covid 19 virus and around 900,000 American citizens have lost their precious lives because of the pandemic.
Although some medical scholars are stating that the fatality data has been filtered by the Government, the exact mortality rate is way beyond the stated numbers by the CDC.
The World Health Organization that announced the arrival of the omicron variant of covid 19 to the world has now revealed the rise of the subtype of the original omicron strain, BA.2.
Many researchers have been claiming that more variants will arise after every 6 months and it will be more collective efforts to safeguard the lives of the citizens. It also depends on the rich nations how much they can afford to distribute free or discounted vaccines to the poor nation if they want to end the pandemic soon.
The pandemic won’t end soon if poor nations won’t be vaccinated at the earliest. In some African countries, the vaccination rate is revolving around 12-15 percent.
Also in the month of December 2021, the CEO of Pfizer claimed that the pandemic might end by 2024, and it also depends on how people react to the vaccines. In the United States, around 64 percent of the entire population has been fully vaccinated with two doses of vaccine.
On the other hand, 36 percent of American citizens are yet to receive the vaccination, and here comes the major concern for the medical agencies and Government. Vaccinating these individuals has become the need of the hour because the omicron and its new variants have been targeting unvaccinated citizens.
The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention stated that the number of cases is now again rising after seeing a minor dip in the past weeks. The death rate is at the highest level in the country.
The seven days average daily fatalities have crossed 2400 deaths. The hospital admissions are also rising by a great margin and currently, 160,000 citizens are admitted in different parts of the country.
The vaccine developers are now shifting their main focus to the variant-specific vaccines and have been claiming that by March 2022, the omicron strain-based vaccine will be widely available in the country.
According to the World Health Organization, Covid 19 virus is a pandemic because the way cases are aggressively rising and have spread around the globe make its entry to the pandemic list. Following proper protocols and precautionary measures laid by the medical agencies is the best way to safeguard lives in the long run.
