Omicron's rising cases have intensified fears of a third wave in the country. According to reports, even though the cases of infection with this variant are mild, yet people need to take special precautions. According to health experts, some of our common mistakes and misunderstandings increase the risk of infection. This is the reason why there is a sharp jump in the daily figures of the last few days.
If there has been an infection before, then now there is no danger again.
In a conversation with Dr. Deepak Saxena, an expert in epidemiological diseases, says, there is often a misconception among people that if they have been infected with corona before, then they are not at risk of infection further. Certainly, the body develops immunity in the event of a previous infection, but it does not mean that you are not at risk of re-infection.
At the same time, the report of the World Health Organization (WHO) says that people who have had Covid before may be at higher risk of infection with Omicron. Furthermore, studies show that natural immunity can last for around 3-4 months, so the risk is for everyone.
Omicron's symptoms are mild, so there is no need to panic.
Studies have found that most cases of the Omicron variant cause mild symptoms, but this does not mean that prevention is not needed. The WHO said in a recent update that the Omicron variant could pose a 'very high risk and could affect the healthcare system. In a tweet, WHO epidemiologist Dr. Maria Van Kerkhove said, "While some reports suggest a lower risk of hospitalization due to Omicron than Delta, many infected still need to be hospitalized." It is needed. There have also been cases of death from Omicron in the country.
People who have taken both doses of the vaccine do not need to worry much.
Dr. Vivek Sahai, Senior Physician, Intensive Care says, "It is very important to take both doses of the vaccine to avoid the risk of Omicron. However, getting the vaccine does not mean that you cannot get the infection. Vaccines help reduce the severity of the infection and your risk of death. People who have been vaccinated also need to be constantly careful.
All existing vaccines are based on the original form of Corona, while Omicron is much more mutated than the original. This is the reason that people are getting infected even after getting the vaccination. But the good news is that they have a very low risk of serious cases of infection or hospitalization.
