Infection is on the rise again before the end of the year

According to the Department of Health, the first corona-infected patient was identified in the country on March 6, 2020. The first death from the virus was on March 18. Since then, the number of identified and dead has risen and fallen, but the number has continued to rise. However, the number of recovery has raised hopes.

According to a notification sent to the media on Sunday stating the latest situation of Corona of the Department of Health, 41 lakh 47 thousand 205 samples have been tested in this one year. 5 lakh 50 thousand 330 patients have been identified in it. The victims have recovered. 5 lakh 3 thousand 3 people. 6 thousand 462 people have died. 6,398 are males and 2,065 are females.

Analyzing the data of the department, it is seen that after the first patient was identified on March 6, this number reached one lakh houses on June 16. 3 lakh without the number of patients identified on 28 August. On October 26, this number exceeded 4 lakh. And the number of identified patients exceeded one lakh after 55 days on December 20. After that the number of identified patients decreases due to various reasons. 50,000 people in the list of patients identified in 7 days. Of these, 4,019 patients were identified on July 2, the highest in a single day.

And on March 18, a month after the first deaths were reported by the corona virus, the death toll reached the 20th century. This number is 500 except last May 25. Then on June 10 the death toll dropped to a thousand. On July 5, 65 days after the first death from the corona virus, the death toll exceeded 2,000. After that the number of deaths increased in a short period of time. On July 26, 3,000, on August 25, 4,000, on September 22, 5,000, on November 26, six and a half thousand and on December 29, seven and a half thousand. The death toll exceeded 7,000 on January 23 this year. On June 30, 2020, 84 people died in a single day. Which is the highest death in one day.

Corona virus infection has been rampant in the country since January this year. This rate came down to less than 3 percent. However, considering the number of tests, the rate of patient identification has increased over the last few days. Considering the sample test in 24 hours on Sunday, the detection rate was 4.30 percent. The rate was 4.13 percent on Saturday and 4.63 percent on Friday. The corona virus is behaving very differently in Bangladesh than in other countries of the world. Although corona infection has increased in different countries during the winter season, the opposite picture has been seen in Bangladesh. However, in the last few days, the infection is increasing due to the increase in temperature. Which has made everyone think anew.

In this context, a member of the National Technical Advisory Committee on Covid-19 and former Vice Chancellor of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University, Prof. Nazrul Islam told Bhorer Kagoj that corona virus has always been behaving differently in our country. Corona infection was feared to increase in our country in winter. But it did not happen. It is not possible to say exactly why. Because no proper research has been done in this regard in our country. But I said from the beginning that the infection will not increase in winter. This is because in winter, various viruses including influenza, para influenza and rhinos are highly contagious. At this time, common people get colds, coughs, pneumonia etc. As a result, two viruses do not attack at the same time. The second wave of corona was expected. But the second wave did not come. Rather it began to decline. Coronavirus infections are now on the rise. It may even grow a little more. Because the infection increased in our country in March. Moreover, people are not wearing masks according to the right rules yet. Not following hygiene rules. Since the start of the vaccination campaign, people seem to have returned to the way they were before March 7 last year. Such behavior is raising fears. If we don’t follow hygiene rules, if we don’t wear masks, there is a big danger ahead.

Pathology, disease control and research institute advisor and former chief scientific officer. Mushtaq Hossain told Bhorer Kagoj that the first outbreak of the infection was not fatal in our country. Although the death toll is not very high, this number is not very low. There is a risk of infection and death at any time if the hygiene rules are not followed. We have seen a sudden increase in infections after the number of infections decreased in many European countries. In our country, we have seen an increase in infections and deaths due to unconsciousness during the two Eids last year. Then when people start to be aware and take precautions, both infection and death decrease. So there is no substitute for awareness. We must not forget the fear of the second wave.
