3rd wave might be less severe than 2nd: ICMR

Indian Council of Medical Research(ICMR) projected that the third wave of Covid-19 pandemic could be a less severe one than that of the second wave.

“Nobody can predict the third wave for the whole country. It will now make sense only if district or state specific data are used for specific projections,” says Samiran Panda, head of ICMR’s Epidemiology and Communicable Diseases (ECD) Division. “Districts where the cases were less in the second wave might report an increase of cases this time,” he added.
