The 3rd wave from the COVID will be inevitable says AIIMS chief, director Dr Randeep Guleria. We might be 6-8 weeks due he added.

Delta variant that’s spreading

With the crowds swarming in many places after diluting lockdowns, the third wave has become an absolute matter of fact. Following this, the AIIMS director Dr Randeep Guleria has said that” Again crowds are building up, people are gathering. It will take some time for the number of cases to start rising at the national level. But it could happen within the next six to eight weeks, maybe a little longer. It all depends on how we go ahead in terms of Covid-appropriate behaviour and prevent crowds. During the first wave, the virus was not spreading that rapidly… all that changed during the second wave, and the virus became much more infectious. Now, the Delta variant that’s spreading is much more infectious. Faster spread is likely,”

Testing, tracking, and treating

The country should focus on the 3t’s which are the testing, tracking, and treating over the next few weeks in hotspots to ensure safety and cut off the chain of reactions. He also stressed the point on the duration between each vaccine to reduced over scientific bases and not by the shortage of vaccine availability.
