India To Witness Covid 3rd Wave In August end
Though there were some reports on the 3rd wave of Covid that it will not be as devastating as in the 2nd wave, experts predict the virus might outbreak by the end of August. According to a team of researchers from IIT, the daily caseload during the third wave will range between 1 – 1.5 lakh, in the worst-case scenario.
As per the numbers churned out by this algorithm, India might witness not less than 1 lakh cases per day in the third wave. M. Vidyasagar (IIT Hyderabad) and Manindra Agarwal ( IIT Kanpur) have developed a mathematical model that helps project the spike in Covid-19 cases.
Dr Yudhyavir Singh,of AIIMS New Delhi, said it is important that one should not lower their guard. Adopt a guarded approach in terms of following COVID-19-appropriate behaviour and implementing restrictive measures. Another Dr Pooja Khosla, senior consultant (Department of Medicine), Sir Ganga Ram Hospital, said the second wave of the coronavirus has taught us that cases can increase suddenly. so it is more important everyone should be self guarded though vaccinated as predictions of 3rd wave Covid virus might be a little bit severe.
Incidentally, the Medical Council had already warned 10 states in the country, including Andhra Pradesh to stay more vigilant amid the fast-approaching third-wave. The country should wage another battle against the virus outbreak and vaccination is one of the primary tools in this excruciating fight against the invisible enemy.
