Third wave could hit as early as in 2-4 weeks, says Maharashtra Covid-19 task force
MUMBAI: In a grim augury for citizens, the state task force on Covid-19 has warned that the third wave could hit Maharashtra—or Mumbai— within the next two to four weeks if crowding in the last three days is an indication.
However, it said children would not be affected as much as those in lower middle-class clusters that haven’t been exposed to the vir s so far.
These predictions were part of the meeting chaired by CM Uddhav Thackeray on Wednesday to review preparedness for the projected third wave. It included task force members, the state health minister and senior bureaucrats.
According to data presented in the meeting, the total number of cases in the third wave is projected to double over those in the second wave, with active cases reaching 8 lakh (active cases as of Wednesday were 1.4 lakh).
The meeting was also told that in the first wave, 19 lakh cases were reported, which soared to 40 lakh in the second wave.
However, it is expected that 10% of the total cases will come from children or young adults, the same as in the first two waves.
Crowd is inevitable in densely populated cities of this overpopulated country.
Maharastra gave second wave, but blame Kumbh mela. Now Maharastra will blame North Indian for third wave.
Isn't Modi already responsible for every single death that will occur during the third wave? I am sure all highly intelligent people will agree with me.
People are response for the spread.
Please create more panic so that people dont become careless like they did in the second wave.
It is in the hands of people to follow covid-19 protocol and stay safe or get affected and die.
And again if you want Lockdown it's not a solution and we have all experienced it in the last two lockdowns..It will only hit the economy hard.Increase vaccination....
POLITICAL RALLIES, LYING TO THE PUBLIC OVER AND OVER AGAIN, BUILDING TEMPLES INSTEAD OF HOSPITALS AMD STATUES, AND NOT HELPING NON BJP RULED STATES... ALL THESE ARE THE ROOT CAUSE OF THE PANDEMIC.
Third COVID-19 Wave will come in between 2nd week of August to 2nd week of December 2021 and total Window period will be less than 100Days.
Predicted total number of total COVID-19 Cases and Deaths will be very similar to First Wave of COVID-19.
Any one who has traveled at least once in a Mumbai local train will realize how farce the social distancing is in India. This is just an example. Take any city. It is flooded with people,at least 25% of them illegal immigrants,who have settled down with Aadhar and ration cards,thanks to the ve greed of corrupt po iticians.
Till this December end,many people will die everyday.So,be careful,.
I feel BJP is trying. If it was congress the situation will en 10 times worse
It shows again that Feku is not only in denial but also in deep coma. In short if Feku does not mass vaccinate the population fast enough, there will definitely be a third wave coming sooner than expected.
Is third wave for india only entire world
Only India, it's bcoz of Mody
Can anyone predict when is the fourth wave coming......
Even in country like Australia which is almost an island and all Borders closed since from almost 1 year plus,still they don't have zero covid count,so for India..it will be there for years to come.
This is depend on individuals as govt. can play their roll to the extent with available resources our people should understand and follow the protocol.
People have started roaming freely without mask in Maharashtra. Some even planning outings now.
The only solution is to decongest cities like mumbai.
