Fourteen states have seen increases in the number of patients hospitalized due to the coronavirus, according to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). In previous years too, an increase in Corona cases has been seen with the onset of winter.
If we look at the trends of the last few years, it is clear that after Diwali, there has been an increase in Corona cases in India too. However, this year the situation seems to be under control. With 26 new cases in the last 24 hours, the number of corona infected people in the country has increased to 172. Health experts say, all people need to be alert about the risk of infection, it is very important to keep following Covid Appropriate Behavior.
Health organizations say that ‘cold weather’ has been considered favorable for increasing the spread of corona virus and other infections. Regarding this, a study conducted in the year 2020 shows that the corona virus can survive for a long time in cold and dry conditions. The same trend has been seen in many other countries of the world also.
Corona cases in the US state Vermont have increased by 70 percent with 43 people hospitalized in a week.
Along with Corona, a surge in cases of flu infection is also being seen in many states of the US. Health officials say flu season is underway in the US, disease levels are high in at least seven states and infections are increasing in other parts of the country.
Several states, including Georgia, New Mexico and the District of Columbia, are seeing increased risks, according to recent data shared by the CDC.
Health experts say, generally the winter flu season increases in December-January. But since last year it is already starting. In the year 2022, the flu infection started in October and its cases have started making people sick in November this year.
Many people with flu have symptoms so mild that they are not tested, so the number of patients may be higher than estimated.
Health experts say, these days an increase in cases of both corona and flu is being seen. Both are respiratory infections, so both these diseases can be prevented by wearing a mask and following Covid Appropriate Behavior.
There are many types of flu viruses, and the variant that is spreading the most so far this year may put older people at greater risk of hospitalization and death. It is important for everyone to keep following the methods of prevention from infectious diseases.
