Coronavirus News: Over 35 crore people vaccinated against COVID in India, says Health Ministry | Highlights
New Delhi | Jagran News Desk: In an unlikely breather, one of the scientists of a government panel tasked with modelling of COVID-19 cases has said that a possible third wave may see just half the daily cases recorded during the second surge. However, the scientist, Manindra Agarwal, said that cases can spread quickly during the third wave if any new variant of COVID-19 emerges.
Earlier too, several experts had warned about a possible third wave that will likely hit the country in October or November. However, experts have said that it can be avoided if appropriate COVID-19 norms are followed. Meanwhile, the Health Ministry has said that people should taking precautions as the second wave is not over yet.

Another is intermediate wherein we assume that vaccination is 20 per cent less effective in addition to optimistic scenario assumptions, said the scientist Manindra Agarwal in a Tweet.
The final one is pessimistic with assumptions different from the intermediate one: a new 25 per cent more infectious mutant spreads in August (it is not Delta plus, which is not more infectious than Delta variant), Agarwal added.
