China Covid Wave: Chinese officials are demanding Covid vaccines to counter the ongoing new wave of coronavirus. It has been revealed in a report that 65 million (65 million) cases will come in a week in June next month. Due to the introduction of new XBB variants of Kovid virus, cases are expected to increase. After the withdrawal of the Zero Kovid policy implemented in China, a sudden increase in the number of patients has been seen.
According to the report of The Washington Post, according to an official media sources, China’s Kovid epidemiologist Zhong Nanshan gave an information on Monday (May 22) that XBB Omicron subvariants variants (XBB. 1.9.1, XBB. 1.5, and XBB. 1.16) has approved two new corona vaccines. Apart from this, there is talk of getting approval for three to four other vaccines soon.
85 percent of the population is vulnerable to the virus
According to the report, in the winter of this year, after the withdrawal of Zero Kovid policy in China, an increase in the cases of Kovid was seen. During that time, about 85 percent of the country’s population had come under the grip of the virus. According to the Washington Post, there may be a decrease in the cases of old variant virus coming to China in the coming times.
However, Public Health Specialists believe that to avoid a jump in the death rate among the elderly population of the country, booster vaccination will have to be increased and measures like antivirals will have to be introduced in hospitals. Earlier, there was an increase in the cases of corona in America too, but on May 11, the country’s government abolished the health emergency.
Another epidemiologist at the University of Hong Kong’s School of Public Health said the number of infections would be lower. Serious cases will definitely be less and deaths will be less. Despite this, a large number can still be registered in one case. It can have a significant impact on people’s health.
According to the Beijing Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDS), there has been an increase in the number of cases since last month. At the same time, an increase in the cases of Kovid was seen in the last two weeks of April.
