VK Paul of Niti Aayog has said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi has told the team in charge of handling the pandemic that there should be no third wave.

In this regard, the Union Health Ministry is of the opinion that the coming three months are crucial in the fight against the pandemic. It has to be noted that the World Health Organization has issued a warning that the world is at the early stages of the third wave.

In India, although the daily caseload has stabilized, the opening up of the economy is said to be a risky thing. But there are also views that the unlock process has been done in the right earnest. "If there is a new variant, there will be a third wave. Public gatherings, among others, especially in open air didn't cause the second wave. A mutation did. So no point shutting down everything in pursuit of this mythical third wave which is more in the hands of the virus than ours," opined Nikhil Mehra, a commentator.
