Deadly second wave of coronavirus in India (No lessons Learnt from First Wave)

 

coronavirus, second wave, india

Corona Virus is back in India and this time it is much bigger and dangerous than the earlier one. In the post, Is India ready for Coronavirus? I discussed things that give an idea about the preparedness of India and the Indian healthcare system to control the coronavirus. The first wave of coronavirus has already given many bad shocks for Indians and shown to us that how our health care system is overstretched and not up to the mark. Now the second wave of coronavirus is giving trouble to India. Already talked about it in the Last Post on Surge in Coronavirus cases in India


The second wave of coronavirus is much bigger than the first wave and it is hitting harder the Indians and Indian healthcare system. If we look at the present situation then it looks that we have learned no lessons from the first wave of the coronavirus and never anticipated a stronger second wave of the coronavirus. If we go by national news then our hospitals have no beds and oxygen. Similar situation, we can find at the cremation grounds. People coming with dead bodies have to wait longer for the cremation because of the large arrival of dead bodies at the cremation centers. 

The bad point about the Indian system is that we make any announcements when we are in trouble but no one checks at the end that things are done properly or not. After the first wave of coronavirus, our healthcare system and government's response to it must have improved for the second wave. However, we see the reverse of it. At the time of the first wave of the corona, I thought that our healthcare system will improve after finding its weaknesses. Governments also made so many announcements to increase the number of beds, ventilators, and other facilities in the hospitals. 

However, when we look for the improvements today then we don't find many. Only see traces of corruption in which cheaper health types of equipment bought for expensive rates. Coronavirus 2 has already become very deadly and it may collapse our healthcare system if it is not controlled soon. 

The only hope, we have from the vaccination is going at a slow pace. If we want to save the common people of India then we need to increase the numbers of people covered under vaccination. So far, only around 12 crore people have got the first dosage of the corona vaccine and around 1 crore have got both doses. Therefore, we need to increase the speed of coronavirus vaccination so that we can control the second wave of coronavirus and be ready for the third wave of coronavirus if any.

Benefit of Adding Fastag to the Vehicle (Paytm Fastag)

  Today, India is progressing in every field and we are seeing many new improvements coming to our lives. One such improvement is mandatory to use of fastag on all vehicles in India. With this change, we can see the saving of time of commuters and saving of valuable fuel. As per the Indian transport minister, with the use of fastag on vehicles, we can hope to see a saving of Rs 20,000 crore. I hope that it will improve the management of vehicles on the various toll plazas. I have many bad experiences on various toll plazas due to manual operation and high rush.  Already, toll collectors and people are finding this scheme of fastag very helpful. I have already installed fastag on my both vehicles two years back. So far, Paytm fastag is the most used fastag in India because it is linked to the Paytm wallet which makes it easy to add cash and make payments. I am also using Paytm Fastag on one of my main vehicles and my experience is very smooth with it. It is very easy to buy Paytm Fasta

11 Deaths from Swine Flu

Number of deaths from Swine Flu has increased to 11 in India and there are estimates that these numbers can increase further. Swine Flu cases are also coming from other parts of India from Jammu and Kashmir to Kerala. So far condition is under control and government is also planning to allow private hospitals to conduct test for Swine Flu and treat Swine Flu patients; however, Swine Flu tests will cost around Rs 25000 in private hospitals and people will required to buy a strip of Tamiflu tablet for Rs 4000. Therefore, most of people definitely like to treat themselves in Govt Hospital because they are treating people for free. Govt of India is stockpiling Tamiflu tablet for any emergency condition, Govt has already sending Tamilu tablets to all district headquarters. People are advised to avoid public gatherings and use all precautions to avoid this flu because prevention is better than cure.

Book review- "Wings of Fire"

“Wings of Fire” is an autobiography of former President of India and an eminent scientist Shri A P J Abdul Kalam. It is very important for every Indian and especially for youth to read this autobiography. It is not because he is a former president and an eminent scientist, therefore every Indian should read it, however this autobiography really has good knowledge to share with us, a knowledge which is very difficult to get elsewhere. This autobiography is different in many ways as it tells us many lessons with true examples. This book tells us the story of a Muslim boy, who became the President of a Hindu dominated country by hard world and dedication. It gives us an inside look into the lives of Muslims in India and relationships between Hindu and Muslim communities in India. It tells us, how common Hindu and Muslim respect each other’s religion. “Wings of Fire” is the story of a small boy achieving his dreams despite all the odds. This real story tells us the role of family, re

New Surge in Corona Virus cases in India

  Presently, India is seeing a new surge in the cases of Corona Virus, and the number of people dying from Coronavirus is already rising. So far more than 1.5 Lakh people have died from Coronavirus in India and it is a big number. When Coronavirus just entered India then I wrote this post that Is India ready for Corona Virus?  In the post, I discussed many points related to this virus. Two months back, it looked that Coronavirus is slowly going away from India and the active cases of Coronavirus decreased below 10,000 per day. However, now the number of cases in few states of India like Maharashtra, Kerala, Punjab, etc started to see an increasing trend which is alarming well for India.  Already, we have suffered a big loss from Coronavirus and we can't expect more blow from it. We suffered many ways from the Corona pandemic and many people suffered big financial losses due to lockdown. Therefore, no one wants to see again the time of lockdowns. The newly developed Coronavirus vacc
