1 in 3 to die- Wuhan Scientists warn about new virus “NeoCov”

Akankshya Mukherjee, Mumbai Uncensored, 29th January 2022 :

A group of Chinese Scientists from Wuhan send warnings in regard to a new type of Corona Virus- NeoCoV- has the potential to cause high deaths and infection rates. According to the researchers from Wuhan University and Chinese Academy of Science’s Institute of Biophysics, only a single mutation is needed for the virus to enter human cells.

It is being said that NeoCoV is said to be a combination of high MR (mortality rate) of MERS-Co, where it is said to be that on an average basis 1 in every 3 infected people can die and a high rate of transmission of the current SARS-CoV-2 Corona Virus. Russian researchers from Vector Russian State Research Centre of Virology and Biotechnology say they are aware about the Chinese research on NeoCoV coronavirus.

Scientists in China issue warnings about NeoCoV, it is said to be a mutation related to the Middle East respiratory syndrome MERS-CoV is linked to the outbreaks in the Middle East in 2012 and 2015. As mentioned, this type of coronavirus, NeoCoV, that spreads among bats in South Africa pose a threat to humans in the future if it mutates further.

SARS CoV-2 has given us variants named after every other Greek alphabet. Corona Virus has a large family of viruses that causes diseases ranging from common cough and cold to Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome(SARS). Researchers note that NeoCov is found in the population of bats in South Africa and dpreads exclusively among these animals. However, NeoCoV does not infect humans but further mutation may prove to be potentially harmful.

According to the WHO, while the MERS virus has demonstrated limited ability to transmit between people outside of hospitals, it has repeatedly caused large scale outbreaks in health care facilities with severe health, security and economic impacts, most notably in Saudi Arabia in 2014-2016 and the Republic of Korea in 2015. In total, 27 countries have reported cases since 2012, leading to 858 known deaths due to the infection and related complications.

Researchers says “Our study demonstrates the first case of ACE2 usage in MERS-related viruses, shedding light on a potential bio-safety threat of the human emergence of an ACE2 using “MERS-CoV-2” with both high fatality and transmission rate”. Further add “Immunity triggered by prior infection or vaccination of other coronaviruses might be inadequate to protect humans from NeoCoV and PDF-2180-CoV infections because neither SARS-CoV-2 anti-sera nor ten tested anti-MERS-CoV nanobodies can cross-inhibit the infection caused by these two viruses”.

In the Middle East respiratory syndrome, the virus is said to be transferred to humans from infected dromedary camels. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), the origins of the virus are not fully understood but based on genome analysis of the virus, it is believed to have originated in bats and later transmitted to camels at some point in the distant past.

Earlier this week, World Health Organisation officials said that the “Next Covid-19 variant will definitely be more contagious than omicron, but the real question is whether or not it will be more deadly”. Prior infections from COVID or vaccination might not be enough to save us from NeoCov.

Khushi Thawani, 22nd Dec, 2022, Mumbai Uncensored:

In light of the sharp increase in instances in China, the union Health minister Mansukh Mandaviya presided over a meeting on Wednesday to review the Covid situation in India. China has fallen into chaos as a result of the government’s decision to abandon the zero-Covid policy’s rigorous lockdown limits. Even if the administration disputes that there have been more than ten deaths, the country’s crematoriums are currently overflowing with bodies.

The health minister met with members of the National Center for Disease Control (NCDC), Indian Council of Medical Research, and the department of biotechnology as concern over a repeat of history reached to neighbouring countries.

Numerous medical professionals and top authorities on health and welfare attended the meeting in Delhi, which was presided over by health minister Mandaviya.

Bharati Pawar, India’s Minister of State for Health and Family Welfare, VK Paul, a member of the government’s core team for the Covid-19 pandemic response, Rajesh Bhushan, Secretary of the Union Health Ministry, Dr. NK Arora, Chief, National Technical Advisory Group on Immunization (NTAGI), Nivedita Gupta, ICMR scientist, Atul Goyal, Director of the National Center for Disease Control (NCDC) were some of the members. 

Following the meeting, Mansukh Mandaviya said, “Covid is still going on. I’ve told everyone involved to be vigilant and tighten support.”

And, Dr. VK Paul of the Niti Aayog issued a warning to wear masks in crowded areas to prevent the transmission of the virus amid worries that the wave of cases in China would result in new mutations. “If you are in a crowded area, whether inside or outside, wear a mask. This is especially crucial for those who have comorbid conditions or are older”he said.

The meeting took place the day after Rajesh Bhushan, secretary of the Union Health Ministry, asked state governments to send samples of positive cases to the genome sequencing labs on a priority basis.

The secretary stated in a statement released by the health ministry that it is crucial to step up the process of genome sequencing positive case samples in order to track the variants through the Indian SARS-CoV-2 Genomics Consortium (INSACoG) network.

Mansukh Mandaviya wrote to Congress MP Rahul Gandhi and Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot regarding Covid standards in the party’s Bharat Jodo Yatra amid concerns that the Covid outbreak would spread to India. The usage of masks and sanitizer should be implemented, according to Mandaviya, and Covid recommendations should be properly adhered to throughout the yatra.

Kalyani Gilbile – Mumai Uncensored, 1st June 2022

सोमवारी, ३० मे रोजी पंतप्रधान नरेंद्र मोदी यांनी व्हिडिओ कॉन्फरन्सिंगद्वारे मुलांसाठी पीएम केअर योजनेअंतर्गत लाभ जाहीर केले. पंतप्रधान नरेंद्र मोदी यांनी २९ मे २०२१ रोजी कोविड-१९ मुळे ज्या मुलांनी त्यांचे पालक किंवा कायदेशीर पालक किंवा दत्तक पालक गमावले, अशा मुलांना आधार देण्यासाठी PM CARES योजना सुरू केली होती. 

कार्यक्रमादरम्यान संबोधित करताना पीएम मोदी म्हणतात, “मी मुलांशी पंतप्रधान म्हणून नाही तर तुमच्या कुटुंबातील सदस्य म्हणून बोलत आहे. आज मुलांमध्ये राहून मला खूप समाधान वाटत आहे. ‘पीएम केअर फॉर चिल्ड्रन’ हे प्रत्येक देशवासी अत्यंत संवेदनशीलतेने तुमच्यासोबत असल्याचे प्रतिबिंब आहे.'”  

कार्यक्रमादरम्यान, पंतप्रधानांनी शाळेत जाणाऱ्या मुलांना शिष्यवृत्ती दिली. ज्यांनी कोरोनाव्हायरस साथीच्या आजारात त्यांचे आईवडील किंवा पालक गमावले आहेत त्या मुलांना मोदींनी पीएम केअर्स फॉर चिल्ड्रनचे पासबुक तसेच ‘आयुष्मान भारत – प्रधानमंत्री जन आरोग्य योजना’ अंतर्गत आरोग्य कार्डही दिले.  तसेच या योजनेअंतर्गत एखाद्याला व्यावसायिक अभ्यासक्रम किंवा उच्च शिक्षणासाठी शैक्षणिक कर्जाची आवश्यकता असल्यास, PM-CARES त्यांना मदत करण्यास सक्षम असेल. या मुलांना त्यांच्या दैनंदिन गरजा भागवता याव्यात यासाठी त्यांना दरमहा ४००० रुपये मिळणार असल्याचे त्यांनी सांगितले. आणि जेव्हा अशी मुले शालेय शिक्षण पूर्ण करतात तेव्हा त्यांना भविष्यातील गरजांसाठी अधिक पैसे लागतील. हे लक्षात घेऊन ही योजना १८ ते २३ वर्षे वयोगटातील तरुणांना दरमहा स्टायपेंड देईल आणि २३ वर्षांचे झाल्यावर त्यांना १० लाख रुपये मिळतील, अशी घोषणा मोदींनी केली. “लहान मुलांना ‘पीएम केअर्स फॉर चिल्ड्रन’ द्वारे आयुष्मान हेल्थ कार्ड देखील दिले जातील, तसेच यातून ५ लाख रुपयांपर्यंतच्या उपचारांची मोफत सुविधा देखील उपलब्ध करून देण्यात येईल” असेही पीएम मोदी पुढे म्हणाले. 

कार्यक्रमादरम्यान पंतप्रधान म्हणाले, “मला माहित आहे की ज्यांनी कोविड-१९ साथीच्या आजारात कुटुंबातील सदस्य गमावले आहेत त्यांच्यासाठी ही परिस्थिती किती कठीण आहे. हा कार्यक्रम अशा मुलांसाठी आहे ज्यांनी महामारीच्या काळात आपले पालक गमावले आहेत. पीएम केअर फॉर चिल्ड्रन ही योजना अशा मुलांसाठी एक प्रयत्न आहे,” तसेच ते पुढे म्हणाले की, “कोणताही प्रयत्न/समर्थन तुमच्या पालकांच्या प्रेमाची जागा घेऊ शकत नाही. त्यांच्या अनुपस्थितीत ‘माँ भारती’ तुमच्यासोबत आहे. भारत PM Cares च्या माध्यमातून याची पूर्तता करत आहे. हा केवळ एक व्यक्ती, संस्था किंवा सरकारचा प्रयत्न नाही. पीएम केअर्स मध्ये लोकांनी कष्टाने कमावलेला पैसा जोडला आहे,” 

“पीएम केअर्स फंडाने महामारीच्या काळात रुग्णालये तयार करणे, व्हेंटिलेटर खरेदी करणे आणि ऑक्सिजन संयंत्रे उभारण्यात खूप मदत केली. त्यामुळे अनेकांचे प्राण वाचू शकले. पण जे आपल्याला अवेळी सोडून गेले, आज हा निधी त्यांच्या मुलांसाठी, तुमच्या सर्वांच्या भविष्यासाठी वापरला जात आहे,” असेही मोदी पुढे म्हणाले. 

पंतप्रधान कार्यालयाने दिलेल्या माहितीनुसार, या योजनेचे प्राथमिक उद्दिष्ट मुलांना राहण्याची व्यवस्था करून त्यांना दीर्घकालीन काळजी आणि संरक्षण प्रदान करणे, तसेच ते २३ वर्षांचे झाल्यावर १० लाखांचे समर्थन, आणि आरोग्य विम्याद्वारे त्यांचे आरोग्य सुनिश्चित करणे. त्यांना शिक्षण आणि शिष्यवृत्तीच्या माध्यमातून सक्षम करणे आणि त्यांना आर्थिकदृष्ट्या स्वयंपूर्ण करण्यासाठी सुसज्ज करणे हा आहे. 

विशेष म्हणजे, केंद्र सरकारने मुलांसाठी ऑनलाइन नोंदणीचे प्रवेशद्वारही विकसित केले आहे. पोर्टल ही एकल-खिडकी प्रणाली आहे जी मुलांसाठी मान्यता प्रक्रिया आणि इतर सर्व सहाय्य सुलभ करत आहे.
