Just A Thought!!!!!

So, I was lately studying viruses and one thing that come to my mind is how much less we know about them, I mean as compared to bacteria, fungi, etc, we don’t have much information about them. Coronavirus might be just the beginning of the chaos. It is not the only virus around, there are still a lot hidden and unidentified and ones that are discovered or identified, we don’t have much information about them.

I still remember, in our 2nd year of M.B.B.S, when MICROBIOLOGY was one of the main subjects, how much less we have about viruses in our textbook except the few most common ones, rabies, and dengue, etc. Even some viruses just have a para or two, and coronavirus genera are one of them, to which current SARS-COV2(new strain) belongs. It was written in the textbook it causes the common cold, 2nd most common cause after rhinoviruses and from University point of view, it was never an important topic to be asked in exams and “we were like, common cold h to KR wata hai, puch Bhi Liya to, like de khud h, itna Jada syllabus hai, Wo khatam ho Jaye ” and when I remember these lines today, I just can’t believe, how this not so important virus has to lead the world on the back foot, that everybody is helpless. And one thing we all should learn never to underestimate anyone.

So, what it can be due to? Is it our ignorance that we don’t do much research on them? Why the government don’t spend money on research work in the medical field? Maybe if more money and time spent on the research of so many hidden microorganisms and even known once, we would have handled the current situation is a much better way. I am afraid, that maybe, it is just the beginning. There are a lot of deadly viruses, that we still don’t know about, that can cause, death within hours, in that sense, coronavirus, does not seem to be that deadly, if we don’t focus on it now, world might end due to the one that can not even survive on their own ( virus need a host for their survival, they just have genetic material and proteins, if we talk in simple language)

Still, there are people, who will think, there are a lot more problems to deal with, but simply answer me, if you are not healthy or if you die, will your that dreams make any sense. yes, there are a lot of other problems, we should focus on them, but why ignore it. And what troubles more, where the youth going, they are more concerned about which is better, TikTok or YouTube?or any other political thing or just the things, I don’t want to talk about here. Seriously, are those things important to you. You have talent, you have a brain, why not to use it in some good way. I am not saying, just go and start research or anything, but you can help in many other ways too.

Just give it a thought, and do share me, what you think, in the comment.

Thank you so much for reading it 😊

  1. Bioinformatics is still an Alien field for many which mainly deals with Structure modelling and decoding of the viruses and bacteria. The main problem which arises like in this case is in determining the structure of the virus and antidote is developed accordingly. But due to lack of specialists in the field and lack of apathy shown by governments in supporting the infrastructure which is required by this specialist branch leads to chaotic condition everytime.

    1. Yes, very true, there is still so much to be done, to research, to find out what they exactly are, there effective drugs, tests, etc, these are unknown, and I don’t think, they know how much grave this condition can become if appropriate steps are not taken today, even if covid get controlled it will one day , can some other virus, may be more deadly, may arise. Hope it be considered as important as not so important things
      Thank you so much for giving it a read and sharing your thoughts 😃😃😊

  2. शिक्षण के दौरान सभी ऐसे ही ख़यालतों से भरे हुए रहते हैं कोई भी इनसे अछूता नहीं है। मैं तो अब तक इनसे बंधा हुआ हूँ। अतिसुंदर लेख👌

  3. Yes rightly said. And if we this situation in the positive light, perhaps this was a lesson for all of us , to make us understand where we were lacking and to work towards it. A blessing for future generations maybe. 🙂

  4. Well you can’t expect the government to spend money on such things. They need the money to waste elsewhere.

    You are right. Everyone has some talent and they can do great things if they want. This way our country can rise to a higher level.

  5. If you want to be sincere then study hard but if you want to gain knowledge then think out of the box..😄 means books can only earns you grade but it only depends on you how you made!! Good going Era, more over that I like that inclusion of YouTube vs tiktok…

    1. Yup, Thank you so much, Divyang 😊😄 for your kind words😇😇
      And I included this TikTok vs youtube as this topic is quite irrelevant when the world is undergoing pandemic, I don’t understand if they prove that too which is better, what is the end result of it, its the thinking actually which need to be changed 😅😅

  6. Not to worry, your thoughts were quite interesting to read.
    That’s true, we shouldn’t have underestimated the virus. Who knows, it may or may not mutate to something horrible!(P.S: I’m not trying to scare you, I’m just dropping this thought here😅)

  7. Hearing such description and a different way of thought from a doctor is beautiful. Doctors usually talks about symptoms and cure and share such posts. You took and delt it in a different way Era. Nice.🤩👍💞

  8. Wow, very informative and thoughtful, even I was watching a video on the history of pandemics and it took lives more than any war could and still here we are inefficient medically. Countries should focus on medical science rather than nuclear bombs, why to kill each other in wars when you will anyways die because of some virus someday 😑

    1. And in news, today, it is showing that there is a possibility of another war 😅😅, and on the virus, their most powerful nuclear weapons even will not work. Hopefully at least now, more should be done in this regard 😅
      Thank you so much, Anamika for giving it a read and sharing your thoughts 😇🤗😃😄💙

  9. Nostalgia of microbiology,almost forgotten.
    Yes we humans are famous for wasting our life in million ways.No body gives a s**t to the precious life because the life we own is given free by Almighty.
    Ant thing that is free has zero value as all the charted accounts vouch for.
    Thank you Dr.Era Singh.Interesting read.

  10. Yes covid 19 is just a beginning… There are many more viruses frozen in permafrost in polar regions… These are ancient unknown microorganisms that can wreak havoc… global warming will release many when permafrost will melt.. Governments should be prepared for that

    1. Yes, very true exactly 😅😅
      Hope at least now more work and research work should be done

  11. It drives me mad hearing some of the mad conspiracy theories that misguided people from non-scientific backgrounds are spreading around, maybe more in the UK and US than where you are ( I don’t know where you are!) making up stories about the virus being exaggerated so people
    can be better controlled or some nonsense, refusing to wear masks cos their freedom to infect people is more important than other people’s freedom to not get infected. It’s very real, I got a test today and am feeling pretty crappy. I’m young and healthy so I’ll probably be fine, feel terrible for others who are not so lucky. It’s still scary though.

    1. it is everywhere , I am from India
      and being in medical professional, when I too see people roaming carefree without any precautions or mask etc, it drives me angry too
      these viruses are real, infinite no still undiscovered 😅😅😅

      oh, take care, everything will be good
