COVID-19 third wave may hit by August-end, but will be less severe than second: ICMR expert

An Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) expert suggests that a COVID-19 third wave may hit the nation by August-end, but it will be less severe than the second wave. Commenting on the situation, Head of epidemiology and infectious diseases at the Indian Council of Medical Research, Dr. Samiran Panda said, "It's very important for each state to examine the state level epidemic and take a call like some of them might be in a situation where they have the very low intensity of the first and second wave but if the restrictions are not maintained now they then they might experience very hard the third wave. So if the third wave happens then it will hit around August-end or so but it's not inevitable."
