Second wave cases are reducing and the pandemic is slowly easing down
Second wave lockdown restrictions are being eventually relaxed in all the states. People are thronging malls and markets. Some have even booked getaways to the hills.
With the decline in the daily rise of Covid cases in India, the situation has started appearing a little normal after weeks of turmoil and tragedy caused by the second wave of the pandemic.
But this doesn’t mean that India is totally out of the woods yet. Despite being at the end of the second Covid wave, India is still in the recovery state with so many recovery cases increasing every day with the vaccination.
This, whilst experts are warning of a likely third wave of the virus. According to a recent snap survey by Reuters, a majority of the doctors feel that a 3rd wave will strike India before October this year.
But talks of a 3rd wave seem premature when the count when the country remains topping the worldwide Covid charts. In fact, several states in India have reported more cases than other nations.
The cases in India have been on the rise since March. Daily infections in India may have fallen to 1/8th of the height numbers in May, but the country remains contributing heavily to the worldwide caseload. Although, the share of its cases has now come down with the whole nation getting vaccinated.
So far in June, India’s Covid cases account for 22.2% of the worldwide share of infections — the very best by any country. However, compared to things in April and when Covid cases had skyrocketed in India, the share is now much less. In April, India recorded around 46 % infection and in may around 51 %.
