WHO (World Health Organization) Chief Scientist Soumya Viswanathan feels that the Corona virus will remain. In a discussion organized by the Southern India Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Swaminathan said, ‘We should mentally reinforce ourselves for two years for disciplined behaviour, as long as the adequate vaccine of Covid-19 (Vaccine) cannot be found.
She said, ‘By the middle of next year, the Corona vaccine may be ready, but initially it will be limited supply. After the elderly, it will be available only for high risk patients and frontline workers. We need at least two years to vaccinate the entire population.
Emphasizing the importance of identifying groups and large assemblies capable of spreading the virus, Soumya Viswanathan said, “After the countries that control the corona, we have to go to the countries where the virus is present. Only then can it be easily controlled before community transmission.
Swaminathan said that to get rid of Corona, we have to take special care of three things. First, keep the unventilated space closed (close unventilated space). Secondly, avoid going to crowded places and thirdly keep practising physical distance.
She feels that those responsible for the community transmission (Corona community transmission) should be identified and kept aside before spreading the infection. We need to keep doing all this. It is the responsibility of the government and citizens to decide what kind of future they want for themselves.
The virus is spreading globally. At this time, the speed of spreading the virus is much higher than the last few months. Around three lakh cases are being filed daily all over the world. Death toll has crossed 11 lakh and around 6,000 people are dying every day. He said that 10 percent of the world’s population can become corona infected at this time.
