Air pollution and droplets will spread rapidly in winter, AIIMS fears

New Delhi: The
 health minister himself expressed concern. This time Randeep Gularia, the director of Delhi AIIMS, sealed the deal. On Thursday, he said corona infections could increase in the coming winter. Not only that, but increasing air pollution can also increase the incidence of corona, according to a recent study.

A study of Italy and China found that corona infections continued to rise in the winter.

And Gulariya fears that air pollution in India could increase that amount. The AIIMS chief said plasma therapy had failed to reduce mortality. Citing the ICMR's statement and report, Gularia said that for this reason, the habit of wearing a mask in winter needs to be strengthened. Wash your hands frequently. Social distance must be complied with.

Researchers say the infection was caused by tiny particles of aerosol in the summer, and the corona may grow further in the winter when the respiratory droplets come in direct contact.

The study was published in the journal Nano Letters. The study further states that the current rules of social distance are not enough to stop the spread of Covid-19. "We've seen in many cases that respiratory droplets can travel more than 6 feet," said study author Yaning Zhu.

In places where the temperature is very low and the humidity is high, the droplets are able to cover a distance of more than 6 feet before falling to the ground, the researchers said. Researchers claim that the corona virus can survive for up to a day in such an environment. And that's why the incidence of corona in meat plants has spread so fast.

Experts say exercise, adequate sleep and a high-protein diet are essential to survive corona in winter. It increases immunity. Meanwhile, Union Health Minister Harsh Vardhan also thinks that the novel coronavirus vaccine will hit the market early next year. Already, several countries in the world, including the United States and Britain, are developing the corona vaccine. Corona vaccine is also being developed in India. Corona vaccines are being developed by several companies in India, including Biotech and Zydus Cadila.
