Addressing a press conference, Raghavan said, “A third wave is almost inevitable given the higher levels of circulating virus in the country. However, it is not clear on what time scale this phase three will occur. We should prepare for new waves,” said.

Shedding light on the transmission of the new strains of the infection he said, “Variants are transmitted same as original strain. It doesn’t have properties of new kinds of transmission. It infects humans in a manner that makes it more transmissible as it gains entry, makes more copies and goes on, same as original.”

Raghavan asserted that the vaccines are effective against the new COVID-19 strains as well. “Vaccines are effective against current variants. New variants will arise all over the world and in India too but variants that increase transmission will likely plateau. Immune evasive variants and those which lower or increase disease severity will arise going ahead.”

Further, he said, “Scientists of India and all over world are working to anticipate these kinds of variants and act against them rapidly by early warning and developing modified tools. It’s an intense research program, happening in India and abroad.”

The parents, who are demanding a cut in fees, told the bench that the schools have saved a colossal amount of money during the online classes towards electricity charges, water charges, stationery charges and other miscellaneous charges which are required for the physical running of the school.

Granting relief to the parents the court said “the fees would have been refixed by the regulation authority but decided to pass an order for 15 per cent cut to settle the issue once and for all.

The court also directed the schools not to prevent any student from attending online classes or offline classes on account of non-payment of fees or outstanding fees.
