With constant updates on new symptoms caused by new variants of coronavirus in India, it has become utterly difficult for people to focus on the positive recovery rates in this ongoing pandemic. It is hard to not let despair interfere in your life. Strictly following COVID-appropriate behavior including use of masks, social distancing, hand-hygiene and monitoring early symptoms can definitely save us and doctors in particular from the heavy burden on hospitals. But apart from focusing on the prompt treatment and maintaining protocols, it is extremely important to notice and discuss positive recovery rates too.
Jammu and Kashmir has witnessed around 2912 fatalities during the second wave of Covid-19 till May 12. Around 4509 cases of new coronavirus infections were reported comprising 87 travelers and 4422 others. The total active cases of coronavirus in Jammu and Kashmir stands at 51,542, according to the Media Bulletin issued by J&K administration on Wednesday.
The cumulative positive cases in Jammu and Kashmir stands at 2,29,407 till May 12 but the number of people who have recuperated from COVID-19 stands at 1,74,953 taking the recovery rate to 76.26 percent, as per the data updated by DIPR J&K. Simultaneously, the total tally of COVID-19 cases in the country now stands at 2,33,40,938 with decline in active cases to 37,04,099 comprising 15.87 per cent of the total infections. And the national COVID-19 recovery rate has improved to 83.04 per cent.
Around 1,93,82,642 people have recovered from coronavirus and the fatality rate stands at 1.09 per cent, as per the data shared by the government on May 12 at 8 a.m. Creating awareness about oxygen crunch, restraint on self medication, judicious use of available medicines and equipment is essential but emphasizing on the fact that 76.26% people have recovered and returned to their homes safely needs attention as well.
Unsung heroes like researchers, scientists, paramedical staff, policemen, community leaders, grocery store owners, chemists, volunteers, drivers and many others are working relentlessly to help us sail through these tough times but we cannot overburden them too with our lenient behavior. It is challenging to focus on the positives but not impossible. Make a point to avoid anxiety inducing Covid-19 news. Everyone wants this pandemic to end as soon as possible.
The tragic loss of human lives, financial stability and peace is undoubtedly saddening. But temporarily accepting these oddities of pandemic can save us from turning it into a catastrophe. Look for positive signs around, indulge more in the stack of books lying around your house, reconnect with an old friend, take a moment and breathe with patience.
The only silver lining in these unusual times is the responsibility that we collectively shoulder to stay at home and not get infected. Invaluable lessons will be taught by pandemic for the long term but for now, we need to sit back, stay positive and be cautious.
