New Delhi. There is concern all over the world at this time about the upcoming waves of Corona virus (Covid-19 Waves). Many western countries are badly battling the outbreak of Corona due to the Delta variant. But in the meantime, a big expert of India has given relief news for the people. Sujit Singh, director of the National Institute of Disease Control (NCDC), says that even if a new variant comes to the fore, it alone cannot bring the third wave of corona. At the same time, he has also said that within the next 6 months, the corona will turn from pandemic to endemic.
Earlier, World Health Organization’s Chief Scientist Dr Soumya Swaminathan had also said that the condition of corona in India has started to become endemic, that is, a condition where there is a spread of mild and moderate level of infection. Earlier this year, in an article on the coronavirus in the journal Nature, scientists said that Covid infection is slowly turning into an infectious disease, although it will continue to spread to some parts of the global population.
what is the meaning of endemic
Endemic means a disease that is always present. According to renowned virologist Dr Shahid Jameel, influenza is also an endemic disease. According to Dr Jameel, ‘Only those viruses can be eradicated forever, whose viruses are not found in animals. Viruses for diseases such as smallpox and polio are transmitted from humans, but rinderpest is an animal virus. This means that the virus is always present in some animals. Such as bats, camels and cats, and once the level of immunity in the human body weakens, these viruses can spread again.
