The Centre on Friday warned that the next wave of Covid-19 will strike again if people become reluctant. If the citizens starts doing what they did during from the month of January and February of this year then a 3rd wave will strike again. Niti Aayog member Dr VK Paul in a media briefing said that, India needs to buy more time to ensure high vaccination coverage. He even added India cannot afford to lower the guard.
He said, “We are back to wearing masks more diligently. Testing is happening generously. We have also imposed restrictions in many districts. All these measures have made it difficult for the virus to spread. This is the price we pay. But it has resulted in containing pandemic.” He also added, “When we will reverse this process, the situation can again become unacceptable,” Dr Paul told reporters.
