Less hygiene condition helps India fight Covid-19
The Centre for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) implies that many regions of India are well-populated and has very poor air conditions in some places, that is less hygiene condition that is helping India fight Covid-19 in a better way.
The death case in India is only 10% in the country which stands at the sixth position when it comes to the total reported cases.
The study says that people tend to get an infectious disease and leads to immune training.
The study said that “Our observation of the weak negative correlation of COVID-19 LDM (log of deaths per million) with communicable diseases, and its positive correlation with the incidence of autoimmune disorders in the high GDP countries, is an indication of the interplay of host immunity and viral infection.”
Most of the world’s population lives in lower-middle-income countries. Hence, the healthcare facilities, hygiene and sanitation is more affected in such countries.
The study states, “it is not unexpected if infectious disease pandemics, such as that due to SARS-CoV-2, have catastrophic consequences in the low and low-middle income countries. Yet, on the contrary, the disease prevalence and the Case Fatality Ratio (CFR) during the Covid-19 pandemic shows a contrasting opposite trend in the low and low-middle income countries when compared to that of the high-income countries.”
Improvement in hygiene conditions may help overcome the impact of infectious diseases.
