Third wave of covid

A committee set up by the Union Home Ministry has indicated that a third wave of coronavirus (Covid-19) disease could peak around October, as the threat of a probable third wave of coronavirus looms large.News Agency ANI tweeted “National Institute of Disaster Management (NIDM), under the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA), has warned of a third #COVID19 wave peak in October in its recent report to the Prime Minister's Office (PMO)." According to Hindustan Times,

The committee's report to the Prime Minister's Office (PMO) mentions the urgent need for paediatric facilities, including doctors, staff, and equipment like as ventilators and ambulances, if a large number of youngsters become infected with the virus.According to the NIDM research, a Reuters poll of 40 experts predicted that the third wave of the COVID-19 pandemic would impact India between July 15 and October 13, 2021.The Delta-Plus variant was generated due to a mutation in the B.1.617.2 (Delta variant) that caused the catastrophic second surge in India, according to NIDM.

This novel variant of concern is a sub-lineage of the Delta variant that has acquired the 'K417N' spike protein mutation observed in the Beta variant (first detected in South Africa)."Though there is not enough evidence as of now to designate the Delta Plus variant as more dangerous than Delta, according to NCDC, as of August 2, 2021, this variant has been detected in 70 cases across 16 states from the 58,240 samples that have been sequenced so far in India," it said.Meanwhile, directors of All India Institutes of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) throughout the country have urged individuals to continue to follow Covid guidelines to avoid an increase in daily caseloads.Earlier, a report prepared by SBI Research - COVID-19: The race to the finishing line - claimed that the covid third wave peak will arrive in the month of September 2021.In India,

There were 25,072 new COVID-19 cases and 389 daily fatalities in a single day. The total number of COVID-19 cases has already reached 3,24,49,306. According to Union Health Ministry data updated at 8 a.m. today, the death toll has risen to 4,34,756, with 389 daily fatalities.The number of active cases has dropped to 3,33,924, the lowest level in 155 days, according to the health ministry, while the national COVID-19 recovery rate has risen to 97.63 percent, the greatest level since March 2020.The statewide immunisation push has resulted in the administration of 58.25 crore COVID-19 vaccine doses as of Monday morning.
