3rd wave can hit India in Feb due to Omicron; 1.5 lakh daily cases can come: IITs Scientific Team claims

The third wave of the Covid-19 pandemic is likely to hit India in February due to the Omicron variant. But it is also estimated to be weak from the previous wave, Data Scientific Team of IITs claims.

The maximum number of cases in the third wave from 1 to 1.5 lakh may come daily.

Data scientist Manindra Agarwal in the study team said that Omicron could be behind this big figure.

Agarwal said the last time the number of infected was reduced by stopping night curfew and crowded events. Therefore, they can be controlled by introducing lockdowns at a lighter level.

The Department of Science and Technology had submitted a formula model in which the third wave was feared in October when a new variant of the virus arrived.

However, the new variant Omicron has surfaced in the last week of November. Therefore, the apprehensions expressed in the department’s model do not go away completely; only time can change.

In South Africa, where the omicron variant was first found, people admitted to hospitals are still low despite extreme cases.
