CORONAVIRUS: A THREAT TO THE WORLD
This is an important question along with its inevitable significance. Alarmingly, the current outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), has been caused by the severe acute respiratory syndrome. Coronavirus continues to spread its fatal web all around the globe. It has reached 198 countries with more than half million cases across the globe. Thirty four thousand deaths have been reported till the evening of 30 March 2020. This has become a pandemic to the world and It seems as if the whole world is an epicenter of this pandemic COVID 19 and the whole world as an epicenter of COVID 19 is a big threat to the globe.
COVID-19: A PANDEMIC
In January, WHO decided to define the outbreak of COVID -19 as a public health emergency of international concern. This has triggered the release of funding and other resources. Recently, it has been declared as pandemic on March 8.
FIRST EPICENTER OF COVID-19
The first epicenter of this pandemic was detected in Wuhan, China on 31st December 2019. The fatality of this pandemic remains in the folds of mystery. There is no vaccine for the treatment of COVID-19. Positively, we hope that the scientists will soon invent the vaccine to combat with this disease.
INCUBATION PERIOD OF COVID-19
Furthermore, if we talk about the transmission of this disease, then it is evident from the first cases in Wuhan that the incubation time could be generally within 3 to seven days and up to 2 weeks as the longest time from infection to symptoms was 12.5 days. Keeping in view the spread of this epidemic, we come across a question in our psychoanalytical study of facts that when will the Carnage of pandemic come to a hiatus or end? The answer to this question is comprehensive as we have to mitigate our social contact or transmission.
WORLDWIDE SPREAD OF COVID-19
It is only because of social transmission that this epidemic became widespread. Owing to this, China became the epicenter in February and then Italy along with other European countries despite their best affluence in health paraphernalia available with them. Now the trends show that the USA is developing as the new epicenter after this pandemic annihilated the European and Asian countries.
In a nutshell, we can say that social distancing is the best effective measure to control this epidemic. Many countries have imposed lock-down to reduce the social transmission. Countries like India have regulated the lock-down for 21 days which is a stern and effective contraceptive measure to break the chain of COVID-19.
So we must follow the advisory to stay at home strictly and honestly. We can detect the trends of lock-down in terms of fresh cases after 14 to 21 days. After that next 21 days will be for recovery and total emancipation from this virus. So, we can expect that the world requires about two months to break the shackles of this pandemic.
