Public health specialists believe the third wave of Covid-19 is unlikely to be as severe as the first and second waves.

While the Delta version was responsible for widespread devastation, experts predict that coronavirus cases may fare up in the following weeks, but only in certain areas. K Srinath Reddy, head of the Public Health Foundation of India (PHFI), told ET that if the Delta form continues dominant, India will only see infection and surges in a few areas.

Several people were affected by the Delta wave during the second wave, and many were vaccinated, he predicts a moderate third wave. He further stated that many people would have developed immunity to the Delta variety post-vaccination, but part of this immunity may be diminishing, but some may still be present. Vaccination rates are also increasing. According to him, the third wave may not be as severe as the second wave of COVID-19.

Meanwhile, the active cases in India continue to dip. In the last 24 hours, the country has reported 15,981 new Covid-19 cases and 166 deaths, according to a Union health ministry bulletin.
