Now the daily cases of corona are decreasing in India, the second wave of corona in India has started weakening, which is a matter of relief. But experts have also warned about the arrival of the third wave of Corona, this is worrying, because the second wave caused havoc in the world in April-May.
In the third wave, a warning has been given about the delta infection, which was identified last year, due to which the second wave of corona came, according to experts, children will be most at risk in the third wave.But how realistic are these fears? Subsequent waves are expected, but their severity and spread depend on a number of factors.
The number of average daily cases in India has fallen to just over 50,000 in recent days, down from the peaks of 400,000 in May. The drop in numbers has largely been attributed to strict lock-downs by states.
Dr Chandrakant Lahariya, a public policy and health systems expert, says India is once again at a delicate phase and how people behave will largely determine the fate of the next wave.
He says it’s important that states reopen the economy gradually. “If we rush into reopening and people don’t follow Covid safety protocols, we only help the virus spread faster.”
He advises that safety protocols need to be implemented at “a localized level” – if specific markets and businesses don’t follow rules, they should be Penalized.
