3,532 mutant viruses found in India!WHO: The outbreak is spreading to neighboring countries…

The WHO recently released a report showing signs that the outbreak in India is spreading to neighboring countries:
① In Nepal, there was a 137% increase in cases last week;
(2) Confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Laos increased by more than 200 times in one month;
③ Hospitals in Pakistan and Bangladesh are at or near full intensive-care units;
(4) About 98% of new cases in Thailand are from mutated viruses.
And the virus continues to spread further afield.
Two cases of novel coronavirus were detected in the Indian delegation to the G7 foreign ministers’ meeting in the UK on May 5.
Rapid worsening of epidemic in Nepal:
An additional 9,196 cases have been confirmed
A total of 377,603 cases have been confirmed
The International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) said in a statement Wednesday that the number of cases diagnosed in Nepal has soared, with the positive detection rate of novel coronavirus reaching 44%.
Officials with the Nepal Red Cross have warned that if the epidemic is not stopped, what happened in India will happen again in Nepal.
The COVID-19 has worsened rapidly in Nepal recently. Some analysts believe that frequent personnel exchanges with India are one of the reasons for the recent worsening of the COVID-19 in Nepal.
The two countries share a long land border and have close people-to-people exchanges.
As the epidemic in India worsened, many Indians entered Nepal.
Nepal has recorded 9,196 new confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the past 24 hours, including 9,023 positive cases of nasopharyngeal swab nucleic acid test and 173 positive cases of novel coronavirus antigen test, according to statistics released by the Ministry of Health and Population on Monday afternoon.
In addition, Nepal has recorded 50 new deaths in the past 24 hours.
As of 15:00 May 7 local time, Nepal has had 377,603 confirmed cases and 3,579 deaths.
Government of India:
There are 3,532 variants of the virus
A third wave is inevitable
A worrying 3,532 strains of the novel coronavirus have been detected in 27 states, the Indian government announced on Wednesday, adding that a third wave of the virus was inevitable given the surge in cases.
Vijay Raghavan, chief scientific adviser to the Indian government, said: “Phase 3 is inevitable given the large number of viruses circulating, but it is not yet clear when phase 3 will occur. Hopefully it will happen gradually.
“Previous infections and vaccines can put adaptive pressure on the virus to make the kind of new mutations it’s trying to escape, and we have to be scientifically prepared to deal with that.”
The outbreak continues in India
The positive test rate in Goa was 41%
India yesterday reported more than 414,000 new confirmed cases in a single day, another record high.
What is the current situation of the epidemic across India?
Have the measures taken by the Indian government to prevent and control the epidemic had some effect?
More than 414,000 new cases of COVID-19 have been confirmed in India in the past 24 hours, again the highest number in a single day since the outbreak began in India and globally.
It is also the third time since May that India has recorded more than 400,000 new cases in a single day.
India’s epidemic continues to grow, with a nationwide positive rate of 21% in the past two weeks, according to a survey, meaning that one in five people tested for novel coronavirus has been diagnosed.
In the southern Indian state of Goa, the figure was 41 percent, meaning that for every five people tested there, two were diagnosed.
The surge in cases has also left the local health system operating under pressure.
In some hospitals in Uttar Pradesh, local media have described nurses as doctors, nurses as nurses and family members as caregivers.
In addition, due to the new outbreak of respiratory difficulties and the increase in the proportion of serious illness, local people have also caused panic, in order to “nip in the wind”, many people have started to buy home oxygen generators.
Some wealthy people have even built intensive care units in their homes.
At present, the price of related medical supplies is rising, and it is very difficult to buy them.
At present, more and more places in India join the “curfew” ranks.
In Mumbai, restrictions have been implemented since the end of March and have shown initial results. According to statistics, the number of new cases per day in Mumbai has dropped from more than 10,000 in early April to more than 3,000 at present.
It is hoped that the epidemic in India will turn to a turning point as soon as possible following the widespread adoption of restrictive measures.
