Storyline


The World Health Organization’s Representative in India, Dr Roderico Ofrin, called on Monday for India to strengthen its response to COVID-19 as the country’s current severe pandemic situation is related to factors such as pandemic prevention measures, population density and new coronavirus variants.

In an interview with UN News, Ofrin said a major factor in the current crisis India is facing is the fact that the virus was given the chance to keep transmitting after the country had re-opened for some time in February, as well as not much compliance with COVID-19 precautions.

"I think this is an important message, that we have a responsibility in curbing the spread, and more than the variants, the original SARS-COV2 is also still the dominant virus, so in that sense, these measures are still very valid and continue to be effective, so that needs to be done,” said Ofrin.

Ofrin said the current outbreak in India is different than the outbreaks in Europe and the US “in terms of scale.”

"I think the difference is in terms of scale. The pattern of how this has spread, of the waves, whether it is in Europe or the US, was fairly similar, but the scale is very different. The density of the population is also probably a factor for this and that's why if you notice, as you have said, the spikes are in the metros,” he said.

The WHO Representative underscored that the virus has proved to be very adaptable and cannot be predicted by models. He stressed the need to keep preparing until the pandemic is over.

"There is no problem with keep on preparing. It is a cycle. We have to see, as an emergency person, this is what we always say: It is a spiral of preparedness, readiness, response, recovery, preparedness, readiness, response, recovery. It's a whole cycle. You don’t stop, especially if we have seen that the virus is changing. It has probably adapted better than people in that sense, but we have to be ahead of the game. I think that's important point, because we know how to deal with it. The tools are the same,” said Ofrin.

Ofrin said these tools include consistent testing, contact tracing, early treatment, wearing masks, washing hands, and keeping physical distance, as well as the importance of vaccinations. He also underscored the need to engage the public.

India's COVID-19 tally hit 20 million on Tuesday amid a second wave of infections in South Asia, as Nepal reported the highest number of daily infections and deaths since the pandemic started.

A total of 357,229 daily cases were registered in India, taking the tally to 20,282,833, confirmed the health ministry, and 3,449 more deaths were reported since Monday morning as the death toll reached 222,408.
