Amidst the second wave of Corona, a record number of 2.73,000 people were found on Monday morning in the country. At the same time, more than 1,600 have died. More than two new infected people come every day for five days.
Meanwhile, a study also confirmed a change in the symptoms of the virus. Children and young adults also get infected. Now, due to more breathing problems, more oxygen has been found in the patients. However, no difference was found in the mortality rate. 70% of those infected were 40 hybrids in either case.
The ICMR and NITI Aayog study of 9,485 patients admitted to 40 hospitals in the country revealed that 54.9 percent had at least one disease during the first wave. Now the number of these people has decreased. Now 48.6 percent of patients are already sick. That is, more than 50 percent of the infected have never had any disease before. It found that 87.4 percent of hospitalized patients had symptoms, but admitted patients now had 74 percent of symptoms. This means that asymptomatic patients are also admitted neurologically. The first wave was in the country from September to November 2020. This year, there is a second wave in March – April.
Increase the number of infected males
This study was conducted on 7,600 patients from the first wave and 1,885 patients who were admitted to the second wave. The first wave had 64.5 percent of male patients, but now 63.8 percent. Now women are more infected. The last time there were 4.2 percent of patients aged 0-19 years, which increased to 5.8 percent. The number of patients in the 20-39 age group increased from 23.7% to 25.5%. However, the lifespan of 40 years or older decreased from 72.2% to 69.8%.
Now 54 percent of patients need oxygen
Dr VK Paul, a member of NITI Aayog, says patients did not have much difficulty breathing early on. 41.7 percent have trouble breathing, and now 47.5 percent have them. Patients experience symptoms of rapid breathing.
Signs of phlegm, throat pain, decreased ability to smell, weakness, fatigue, muscle aches and symptoms of joint pain are also reduced.
The second wave needs the most oxygen because the new strain causes difficulty breathing. The first 41.1 percent needed oxygen, now the number is over 54 percent.
There is a decrease in the number of patients requiring ventilators. Earlier, 37.3 percent needed ventilators, now it’s 27.8 percent.
