Jagran Bureau, Neu-Delhi. In the third wave, the vaccine proves successful in saving lives and property. According to the Union Ministry of Health, many infected people died during the second wave due to insufficient vaccination. Not only that, the need for hospitalization proved to be a major problem for those infected. However, due to the vaccination of more than 72 percent of the adult population, very few third-wave infected people require hospitalization and their mortality rate is also very low.

Presenting the numbers of infections in the second and third waves, Union Health Minister Rajesh Bhushan said the number of infected rose from 72,330 on April 1 to 3,46,452 on April 30. The number of active patients that day was 31,70,228. According to this, the weekly average of those who died from an infection in one day rose from 319 to 3059 on April 30th.

As of January 2022, 72 percent of the population received both doses.Compared to the third wave, the number of infected increased from 22,775 on January 1 to 3,17,532 on January 20. As of January 20, the number of active patients in the country was 19,24,051. But the weekly average of daily deaths during that period was much lower than in the second wave. On January 1, an average of 281 infected people died, while on January 20, 380 infected people died. Rajesh Bhushan explained vaccination as the main cause of this difference in deaths, saying that by April only two percent of the adult population had received both doses of the vaccine, while in January 72 percent of the population had received both doses.

According to Rajesh Bhushan, 52 percent of youth in the 15-18 age group have received a single dose of the vaccine. At the same time, work is accelerating to administer Vigilance dosages to healthcare workers, frontline workers and people over the age of 60 suffering from a serious illness. He appealed to the survivors to get the vaccine as soon as possible.

The need for hospitalization is also reduced because of the vaccineAccording to Rajesh Bhushan, the vaccine not only successfully saves the lives of those infected but also reduces the need for hospitalization. Presenting the infection rate in Delhi, the number of those infected and the number of those hospitalized, he said 99 percent of those infected show symptoms of fever, sore throat and cough without flutter, which recover in five days.

At the same time, some infected people have complaints of muscle weakness and muscle fatigue. Because of this, very few people need to be hospitalized. He said that with the increase in the infection rate in the second wave, an increase in the number of hospitalized patients was clearly seen, but despite the rapid increase in the infection rate in the third wave, many patients were being hospitalized.

There is no need to take children to the hospitalRajesh Bhushan dismissed claims that children would be more likely to be infected in the third wave. Presenting the annual number of child infections, he said that 10 percent of the total infected in 2020 were in the 0-19 age group, and their share in the total deaths was 0.96 percent. In 2021, 11 percent of all infected people came from this age group and their share of all deaths was 0.70 percent. He said there wasn’t much of a difference in child infection and death in the first and second waves. In the third wave, based on the Delhi data, he said the fever symptoms were generally seen in children aged 11 to 18. They too have the infection seen in their upper airways and not reach the lungs. Obviously there is no need to take him to the hospital.
