It hasn’t been long since the country came out of the ghastly second wave of the Coronavirus infections. A huge chunk of our population got infected with the virus with many succumbing to death.
While COVID-19 cases are still on the rise, new variants like the Alpha and Delta strains have emerged with fresh concerns.
There is fear among the people that the spread of the new variants of COVID-19 will cause a third wave in the country. Many fear the extent of help vaccination could extend. According to many research and predictions, the start of the third wave has already begun.
Recent findings suggested by VK Paul, Head of the COVID task force, NITI Aayog, have hinted that India may see upto 6L cases a day in the coming months, and may possibly, be worrisome for the pediatric population.
Similar mathematic models and research have hinted at a ghastly third wave if preparations aren’t put in place.
A number of epidemiologists and medical experts have hinted that the third wave could cause a rise in the number of daily COVID cases starting September and peak around the end of October or November.
