MUMBAI: The state may report 60 lakh cases in the event of a third wave and the most cases on peak day are likely to be from the city and Pune, estimates the public health department.
The city reported 91,100 cases at the peak of the second wave on March 11, while on the peak day of the third wave the department expects 1.36 lakh cases. In Pune, 1.25 lakh cases were reported on peak day on March 19, and it is estimated that 1.87 lakh cases will be reported on the peak day of the third wave.
“The most number of cases will be in Pune and Mumbai and the public health department will have to draft a comprehensive action plan to tackle the situation,” a bureaucrat said.
Of the estimated 1.36 lakh patients in the city on peak day, 88,823 are likely to remain under home quarantine, 47,928 are likely to be hospitalised, and 957 might require ICU beds with ventilators.
In Pune, 1.21 lakh persons might remain in home isolation, and 1,314 might require ICU beds with ventilators.

In Nagpur, the number of cases is likely to go up from 80,000 on the peak day of the second wave to 1.21 lakh on the peak day of the third wave with 850 persons requiring ICU beds with ventilators.
Indian experts are no longer to be trusted. Misleading people should be treated as a serious offence and the concerned should be alised
CM ko slap maro
Dismiss the jehadi govt of Maharashtra and everything will be fine.
Why do you have to publish such news, it feels that Indian media is like God they know everything , even the number of cases. Just creating unnecessary panic among the people and defaming our country image.
Everyday they are saying a different thing ? Yesterday someone said india is in some kind of endemic state, 3rd wave may not come. and today someone else is estimating 1.3lkah cases per day,
there is no 3rd wave going to come in india
Fails to understand the figures they come out with. It's seems like a budgetary numbers which is targeted to be achieved come what may.
Media is the real culprit, playing the viln role.. Media is destroying the economy of the country and dging the lives of the common people.
Don't know why fear is being instilled in the public. Instead ask people to be vaccinated and be cautious. Do not spread negativity.
On what basis or statistics are you making such statements? Stop causing unnecessary panic.
Tomorrow they will publish -
Why third wave would actually never come?
This is like marketing fear to prome vaccination.
Scare mongering by the so called experts.
stop spreading nonsense
Why do you people spread such news which creates panic and retail business is badly hampered do you think you are above god or nature think before you write
Covid 3rd wave getting postponed due to Afghan crisis... all media houses are focusing on Afghan and have forgotten covid third wave. Covid19 variants are very angry now, as their launch dates have been postponed.
This is all State govts ploy to get funds from centre..they will create panic in minds of people..unless there is another vir s which mutates and is highly contagious than Delta ..dont see those numbers turning into reality
So even if there will be so many cases even after the vaccination then what's the point of taking vaccines? Things are only getting worst that's what this article says.when you come up with such assumption atleast back with some logic. 2nd wave might be because there were people who were not vaccinated.
What about kerela where the cases are more than half of india.. is it bcos leftsts rule the media
And whatever has happened in 2 wave has built herd immunity. Take precautions nothing to get scared.
These Media peoes should be hanged
Why they spreading this type of serious news to sale there news portals.
If 3rd wave doesn’t come or is much much mild compared to the 2nd wave, these scaremongers must be sent to jail.
