Third Covid wave won’t impact economic growth: Govt

New Delhi: The government is confident that the country’s economic growth will not be hit even if a third Covid wave hits the country in the coming months as the country is rapidly vaccinating its adult population in a tight race against the deadly virus that has killed more than 4,40,000 people in the country in less than two years.

Rapidly increasing vaccination coverage and richer experience with pandemic management provide the confidence that the recovery can be continued even in the event of a third wave,” the department of economic affairs said in its monthly report for August this year.
