The next wave is set in motion after 6 or 8 weeks.

Here’s a glance at his consultation on NDTV India

○ The citizens of India are not taking the lessons from the past first and second waves. If I talk about the crowd in the marketplace, I observe the people even don’t have a glimpse of our situation in the last wave. We spent the first wave of the corona because of the ignorance of people.

Second wave

○ I see four lakh cases daily in the second wave with thousands of deaths in a single day. I presume there would not be any single home unaffected by the covid-19. With a lack of oxygen cylinders, ICU beds, Medical treatment, and vaccines.

His opinion towards prevention of the third wave.

○The time duration must be decreased for the second dose. As “prevention is better than cure.” Only vaccinated citizens can preview the upcoming third wave. The shortage of vaccines must not explain the next wave.

○The regions with a positive rate of over 5% must enforce stricter restrictions and regulations. Supervision must be harsher.

Government should prepare strategies.
