India Can Prevent Third Wave of Covid-19, Says Government

Government is optimistic about the country’s power in resisting the third wave…get the details…

Thursday, 24th June 2021


As India staggers from the throes of the second wave of the coronavirus pandemic, the Delta Plus variant of SARS-CoV-2 has now raised its to head becoming a cause of worry for an anticipated third wave. This, however, says the government can be staved off or at least attenuated if careful attention is paid to the lessons learned from the last two waves.

Delta Plus variant was first detected in Europe earlier this year in March. The new version of the earlier mutant Delta variant has been found in some samples in India along with 10 other countries since then. 

Although it is not yet clear whether the Delta Plus version is more infectious/fatal when compared to the Delta variant, which had led to severe infections and a higher rate of hospitalization, it remains a proven theory that a successful mutation leases fresh life into any virus or organism and helps them thrive better.

Hence the Delta Plus variant of SARS-CoV-2 has become a cause of serious concern for an anticipated third wave.

Dr. V K Paul, a member of NITI Aayog said, the third wave of the pandemic can be prevented if people carefully adhere to all the COVID protocols.

The best one can do currently is to get themselves vaccinated apart from maintaining COVID appropriate behavior to preclude a third wave of the deadly disease. Dr. Paul took the example of several countries that were not even hit by a second wave and hence, he believes India can be one such nation too if all her citizens behave responsibly.

Dr. Paul said, "We need to do our daily work, maintain our social life, open schools, businesses, take care of our economy; we will be able to do all this only when we are able to vaccinate at a fast pace."

Dr. N.K. Arora, Chairperson of, National Technical Advisory Group on Immunisation in India said, "Jan Bhagidari (people's participation) and Jan Jagran (awareness among people) are essential to eradicate the fear of vaccination."

With the second wave slowly receding, it is advised by experts to get vaccinated now.

Dr. Arora also said, " Our capacity is such that we will easily be able to administer 1.25 crore doses of COVID-19 vaccine every day". He added that the government is also targeting to vaccinate around 1 crore people every day.
