The global pandemic corona virus continues to wreak havoc. So far, over 5.67 million people have been infected with Corona worldwide. At the same time, more than 13.57 lakh people have died due to corona virus. At the same time, scientists have now warned that Kovid-19 may increase the number of corona patients by six times compared to the number of people infected so far worldwide. In such a situation, if you are also negligent in the rules related to corona virus, then be careful.

Scientists said the actual number of global infections due to the Kovid-19 epidemic could be up to six times higher than the cases known so far.

Infection rate very high in these countries
According to researchers from the Australian National University (ANU) and the University of Melbourne, the rate of infection in 15 countries during March and August was on average 6.2 times higher than the reported cases. According to the report published in the journal Royal Society Open Science, the corona virus infection rate in Britain, France, Belgium and Italy is much higher than the known cases and in the case of Italy it is 17 times higher.

The study said Australia had the best level of infection detection among 15 countries at the end of April. But the rate of infection may still be five times higher than the officially stated number at the end of August.
The researchers said the study estimated the exact number of infections in Australia, Canada, South Korea and the US, with a combined population of more than 800 million people from 11 European countries.

Eight percent of the population corona infected
Quentin Grafton, co-author of the study and ANU professor, said that we found that infections are much higher in many countries than confirmed cases. This is important for both control and estimation of infection. He referred to Britain for example and said that in our analysis, more than 54 million people in the UK, ie eight percent of the population, have been infected with the corona virus or have been infected before.

abstract

  • Actual number may be six times higher than known cases of corona infection
  • Infection rates in Britain, France, Belgium and Italy are much higher than known cases
