- AIIMS Director Guleria enumerated the reasons that could be responsible for the third wave.
- Guleria said that the phenomenon of immunity, the third wave can come from the variants dodging immunity
- AIIMS director said that even with the relaxation of restrictions, the third wave of corona may come.
- Dr Guleria said that the severity of the third wave can be reduced by following the rules and vaccination.
Randeep Guleria, director of the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), has told about the fears of the third wave of corona, its possible reasons as well as how its severity can be reduced. Guleria said that the phenomenon of immunity, fast-spreading variants of the corona virus capable of dodging immunity and relaxation in lockdown could be due to a possible third wave of the epidemic.
‘The severity of the third wave can be reduced by following the rules, vaccination’
Guleria said in a program that the severity of the third wave can be reduced by following the rules related to corona like following the rules of social distance, wearing a mask and taking the vaccine.
‘If a new variant of dodging immunity comes, the third wave will be more dangerous’
The AIIMS director said, ‘A similar model from an IIT shows that if all restrictions are removed and if the virus variant is also immune to hoax, then the next wave will be much bigger than the second wave. can. “If some restrictions are maintained and the virus also remains stable, then the cases will not be high and if we impose more restrictions then the cases will be even less,” he said.
‘Some changes are possible in vaccines according to new variants’
Guleria said that even if new forms of corona virus emerge, then some changes can be made in the existing vaccines. He said that the third wave of Kovid-19 is being seen in other countries but the number of hospitalizations of patients has decreased, which indicates that the vaccines are working. He said that apart from Covaccine, Kovishield and Sputnik V, work is going on in the country on many other vaccines.
ICMR experts have predicted the third wave next month
Meanwhile, Dr Samiran Panda, Head of the Department of Epidemic and Infectious Diseases in the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR), has said that the third wave of corona epidemic in the country may come next month. In a conversation with NDTV, he said that the third wave of corona can come in late August and there will be no chances of it being as dangerous as the second wave.
Third wave will not be as fast as second wave: Dr. Panda
Dr. Panda said, ‘There may be a third wave across the country, but it does not mean that this too will be as fast and dangerous as the second wave.’ This week the Indian Medical Association had said that the third wave will definitely come because people are not following the Kovid protocol.
Corona: New cases giving tension again after relief, 40 thousand crossed
Doctor Panda has also counted new variants of dodging immunity among the reasons for a possible third wave of corona. He said that a variant of the corona could be responsible for the possible third wave, which can give immunity and vaccine as well. Apart from this, if the new variant may not have the power to suppress immunity but it is going to spread rapidly, then even then the third wave of corona can come.
