Amendment in reporting of cases
Dr. Nitin Shinde, an expert in infectious diseases, has said that the number of cases does not matter much at all. Rising covid cases are ‘casedemic’. Right now they desperately need a daily bulletin on the number of hospitalizations for the coronavirus. This should give them an alarm and a thought as to whether sanctions are really needed. The drawback of the rise in covid cases is that the number of vulnerable covid patients requiring hospitalization will increase.
Nitin has also called for amendment in reporting of cases. They have said that they are still following the same format. Coronavirus scenario is concerned, The public does not know exactly what is happening. The Omicron virus has spread very rapidly and there are rarely any complications. Because of this, its spread has not stopped at all and there is no point in isolating a patient after the same period. Doctors are also not insisting on testing for coronavirus for mild patients at all.
