No country is fully prepared for a coronavirus pandemic as it was an uncertain thing that happened to the globe. The World Health Organization has declared the coronavirus, or COVID-19, a pandemic. Some countries will be better to handle the outbreak than others.

Coronavirus is now spreading in several countries and affecting the Economy and above all lives throughout the globe. In some countries, the virus is affecting lives tremendously then other countries and it totally depends on how actively the countermeasures are implemented and informed by the government to the residents and on how prepared the country is. No vaccine is developed yet and countries are trying their best to develop one. The rise in the number of cases on a daily basis is proof that no country is prepared to put an end to this.

Healthcare industries are struggling to provide the cure and are going through the shortage of medical equipment and basic personal protective equipment like masks, gloves, and ventilators. The rapidly increasing demand on health facilities and health care workers threatens to leave some health systems overstretched and unable to operate effectively.

So is the rest of the world ready for the coronavirus?
The short answer is “No“.

Serious disease outbreaks pose three threats. There is a direct impact in terms of illness and deaths. Then there are people with other illnesses who are disadvantaged because health services are overwhelmed. Finally, there is the Economic impact of travel bans and people not working.

For now, the aim is to stop the coronavirus from spreading. The strategy is to identify people who are infected, quarantine them and trace their contacts in case any are infected too.

Testing Delays

Most public health experts in the US say delays in testing for the coronavirus remains the biggest obstacle for dealing with its potential spread. That is because, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), chosen to create its own testing kit instead of using one recommended by the WHO and it took longer than anticipated.

Imminent Threat

There are concerns that some countries aren’t providing sufficient funding and training. Isolating all infected people in hospitals and tracing their contacts also works only if case numbers remain low. If case numbers rise, it doesn’t make sense to fill hospitals with people with mild infections who don’t need treatment.

At this point, the strategy would have to switch to asking people with mild cases to isolate themselves at home, and treating people who are seriously ill in communal wards. According to Recent Data, there are around 215,344 active cases in the United States with a death toll raised to 5,112. Putting a question mark on preparation done by the government to put an end to this virus.

Acute care hospitals, ICU, step-down, and burn beds: The American Hospital Association (AHA) maintains a proprietary dataset of most hospitals in the United States. There are 68,558 adult beds (medical-surgical 46,795, cardiac 14,445, and other ICU 7318), 5137 pediatric ICU beds, and 22,901 neonatal ICU beds. Negative pressure is strongly recommended with heavily communicable diseases such as COVID-19. The world is feeling the shortage of medical equipment’s especially the most critical one i.e Ventilators and other protective equipment. 

The situation is getting critical with time and there is still no hope for a vaccine. The virus is spreading with enormous speed in every country with only a few left that has isolated themselves long before the outbreak by locking down all states or provinces. As of now social distancing and self-isolation is the only way to prevent the spread of the virus as it travels from person to person. Countries are preparing themselves for the worse condition that is about to occur by taking strict action on social gathering and arranging medical equipment to strengthen healthcare because “The best defense against any outbreak is a strong health system”.
