Four diseases became periods in the Corona epidemic. 5500 scientists after studying in 204 countries found that one million patients lost their lives due to obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure and cholesterol. Most of the patients were suffering from these diseases, causing corona infection to be fatal for them. Scientists cautioned that if there is a similar lifestyle then any subsequent epidemic will prove to be fatal.
In a study published in The Lancet Medical Journal, researchers have counted deaths due to diseases and other causes. It also described how severe the coron infection had on mankind. According to him, the way the public health system failed to deal with the rate of acute diseases and infectious diseases in the world before Corona, due to which the number of people who died due to the outbreak of epidemics increased steadily. Lancet editor-in-chief Richard Horton says the corona virus, combined with four diseases, has become more dangerous and will increase the burden of disease in the world.
The Global Burden of Disease study is the most comprehensive research of its kind. In this, a team of 5500 international scientists along with the World Health Organization investigated the causes of death in 204 countries. For this, they analyzed 286 causes of death, 369 diseases and injuries and 87 risk factors.
More deaths from heart disease in the elderly
The international research team found that many deaths are also occurring in young people due to lower back pain. At the same time, heart disease continues to be the leading cause of death among the elderly.
In 2019, respiratory infections, diarrhea, malaria, meningitis and cough are the leading causes of death in children younger than 10 years.
Up to the age of 49
Injuries, AIDS, back pain and stress related diseases became the cause of death in people between 10 and 49 years
Over 50 years old
The highest number of deaths due to ischemic heart disease, heart stroke and diabetes occurred among people of this age group. In ischemic disease, the cells carrying blood to the heart shrink, causing death of the person.
Bad eating is becoming deadly
Researchers found that poor eating and lack of adequate exercise is an important reason for deaths due to diseases. If people could not control these two conditions, then after Corona, the burden of diseases would increase.
Steadily decreasing age
The Global Burden of Disease-2019 report found that the global age standard for people under 50 has been steadily decreasing since 2010. Even more serious is that for the age group of zero to nine years, this rate has reached the lowest level ever.
