The state of California has reported more than 100,000 new cases and 181 deaths, while the state is facing a shortage of coronavirus testing kits. The number of corona patients admitted to the hospital has doubled in a fortnight.

People are getting frustrated due to non-availability of test kits or delay in getting test results. A Stanford University doctor said that if test kits are not available, many people with mild symptoms go to work assuming they are not infected.

The New York Times reports that the incidence of diabetes in children has increased since the start of the epidemic in Europe. The CDC study examined the large insurance claims database and found how many children under the age of 18 have been diagnosed with diabetes. Researchers used two databases for this study

In one database, children over the age of 18 who had had diabetes for more than a year, while in the other database, databases of children with and without diabetes were checked before and after March 1. In Britain, 1,3,20 new cases of corona were reported and 4 people died. In France also 2,3,613 new cases of corona were reported with 18 deaths.

Leader of Communist Party of Nepal Narayan Kazi Shrestha was also infected with Corona and has been in isolation for 15 days.

Those recovering from corona are three to five times more likely to be infected with Omicron

According to the World Health Organization, patients recovering from corona infection will be three to five times more likely to be re-infected with Omicron than Delta.

Hans Kluge, Huna Europe’s regional director, said the Omicron variant could explain the earlier spread of immunity in humans. People who have been previously infected with corona, who have not been vaccinated, and who have been vaccinated several months ago, can become infected with Omicron. Three things need to be done urgently to stop Omicron’s cases from escalating.

One, getting vaccinated, second, preventing the spread of more infections and equipping the health system to deal with three more cases.
