New Delhi, 22/8: Due to the second wave of Coronavirus infection, a large number of people in the country and the world were affected. In India too, a large number of people died during the second wave. Now the third wave of corona infection (COVID-19) is being feared. Meanwhile, NITI Aayog member VK Paul last month gave some suggestions to the government to deal with the corona infection. It was said that in future arrangements will have to be made for hospitalization of 23 cases out of every 100 corona virus infection cases.
According to a report by The Indian Express, the NITI Aayog had earlier predicted even before the second wave in September 2020, but this estimate is much higher than that. At that time, about 20% of patients with severe/moderately severe symptoms were told by NITI Aayog to require hospitalization.
The recommendation to segregate a large number of hospital beds after the second wave of covid-19 is based on the pattern observed in April-June this year. Reportedly during its peak on June 1, when the active case load across the country was 1.8 million, 21.74% of cases required hospitalization in the 10 states with the maximum number of cases. Of these, 2.2% were admitted to the ICU.
