AIIMS Director Rajdeep Guleria said that if the Covid-19 rules were not followed properly and groups/gatherings could not be prevented, another corona wave would surely erupt in the next six or eight weeks. He suggested that people should strictly adhere to the Covid rules until at least a significant number of vaccinations have been completed.
The AIIMS chief said authorities should be alerted immediately if Covid-19 cases appear to be on the rise. And the lockdowns should be imposed immediately in such areas. Mr Guleria reiterated that there was no evidence to suggest that the third wave would have a major impact on young children.
The Indian epidemiologists say that Corona third wave was inevitable in India. And it may occur between September and October. According to the Union Health Ministry, another 60,753 Covid positive cases were reported across the country in the last 24 hours. This brings the total number of cases registered so far to 2,98,23,546. The Central government said there are currently 7,60,019 active cases across the country.
On the other hand, another 1,647 people have died due to corona in the past 24 hours. This brings the number of corona deaths in the country to 3,85,137.
