India may soon see a “short-lived” Covid third wave: Cambridge Tracker

New Delhi: The Covid-19 tracker, developed by the University of Cambridge, UK, is intense “within a few days” in India, despite the wildfire-like spread of highly contagious Covid Omicron variants in the country. We predict that short-lived virus waves may occur soon. In more than 780 cases reported on Wednesday.

Trackers properly predicted a catastrophic second wave in May and predicted that India’s Covid infection would burn slowly in August.

Professor Paul Kattuman of the Judge Business School in Varsity told Bloomberg:

“New infections will begin to increase within a few days, perhaps within this week,” he said. However, he added that it is difficult to predict how high daily cases will be.

Trackers showed a sharp rise in infection rates in six states as “serious concern” in a memo on December 24, which had spread to 11 Indian states by December 26, the report said. increase.

The rapid spread of Omicron infections has contributed to the total number of Covid infections in India. The number of Covid cases across the country exceeded 9,000 on Wednesday and is now 9,195. However, last week’s overall tally was about 7,000.

According to the latest information from the Federal Ministry of Health, Omicron infection has so far spread to 21 states and Union territory.

Of the 238 Omicron cases detected in Delhi, 57 were discharged. Data show that Gujarat, Kerala, Telangana, Rajasthan, Karnataka, Tamilnadu, Hariyana, and West Bengal report Omicron cases in double-digit numbers.

The World Health Organization (WHO) warns in a weekly epidemiological update that the risks posed by Omicron variants are still “very high.” Omicron is behind the rapid virus surge in several countries, including those that have already overtaken the formerly predominant delta variant, the global health agency said in a weekly report.
