Nations all over the world are battling with new COVID-19 variants and trying to make sure that they are not affected by a disaster like India that is passing through critical situations. They face many risks, including huge populations that have avoided restrictions and weak health-systems disturbed under the strain.
Hospitals have been rushed with Coronavirus cases in a province in southern Egypt, which is supposed to be one of the main places in a third wave spreading across the nation. Moreover, doctors and medical experts in Sohag province threaten the health system of the country that there could be a collapse when the government of Egypt rushes in new supplies.
The head of the province’s doctors’ union, Dr. Mahmoud Fahmy Mansour said described that his estimate is that there is no family in the province that doesn’t have a COVID-19 case. He continued that they have lost 5 physicians in just one week.
However, Mansour said that a situation like India was a possibility, but God willing, it is a very far possibility.
Egypt imposed strict lockdown
Egypt long hesitant to implement new COVID-19 lockdowns, the country’s government declared its rigid restrictions in several months on Monday. The country directed restaurants, stores, malls, and cafes to halt at sharp 9 PM and blocked dense meetings for around 2 weeks. Furthermore, the country ordered to shut down parks, and beaches throughout incoming Eid el-Fitr and the holy Ramadan month.
Egypt is no the only country that is seeing the surge in new infections. Tedros Adhanom, the WHO (World Health Organization) director-general, said that all across the globe, more Coronavirus infections have been reported in the previous 2 weeks than in the whole first six months of the Coronavirus pandemic.
He further explained that Brazil and India accounted for the big part of that, but many other nations across the world are also dealing with very severe circumstances. He added that what is happening in Brazil and India could happen anywhere unless people follow all these public health precautions.
India, one of the highly populated nations, has been hardly smashed by Coronavirus and a catastrophic surge of cases when its PM Narendra Modi boasted of vanquishing the epidemic and arranging many highly crowded events.
New COVID fatalities and cases mounted steeply nearly thirty-fold throughout March and April. Besides this, the country’s health system was extremely damaged, which left Coronavirus cases desperate for oxygen and other necessary supplies.
