Covid-19 Pandemic is showing its aggression on daily basis, more victims more casualties more death and more fear globally. Spread rate is multiply every single day, even death tolls are increased but some of the nations have to hide the actual figures of deceased persons, the purpose of this writing is to identify why that tool as a major indicator is not very correctly mentioned around the globe.
There may be many reasons for this, what I have observed are as follows.
The current war is just to strength economically and unfortunately this pandemic disease starts from china and first reach to the strong countries such as USA, UK, Spain, and European Countries, they have strong health system but this crisis has locked down them and halt for weeks, those who were having strong economic growth their systems are also shivering and it’s Shrinked.
They have huge number of death tolls, to control and stable economic crises and to decrease the fear of corona from people they show a smaller number of death and increase is number of recovered people but do you think it’s justified to hide the actual number? Hiding facts are never be so cool and ethically considered.
Health Care System:
Many of the Hospitals and Health care system are not trained nor built to handle sick and coronoid patients, due to fear of spread into their system and affect others, those who can accommodate sick patients they have less resources because they need isolation area to separate one from another which require huge place, temporary hospitals built, town halls and other areas convert into hospital setup, which is not enough to cater the big numbers.
Personal Protective Equipment’s PPE:
Health care workers have a biggest issue to have PPE, Mask, and Sanitizer, glasses, isolation kit and other PPE. The production is the biggest issue, each country needs them, the demand is very high against the productivity, most of the countries, flight operations are also halt to minimize the spread, this PPE issue also a fear for Doctors, Nurses, and other paramedics to work in the health system, as this deadly disease already affect healthcare workers and eaten many life’s of the healthcare heroes. We need to keep supply the PPE to our health care heroes so they can fight against this pandemic disease.
But question revolving around my mind is if there are patients with positive covid19 and isolation is not yet completed, those patients who are at high risk can get the disease from the community.
According to facts and figure which show the danger is not yet complete, it’s still in our community. If we take it seriously we will win otherwise we had to lose HOPE.
