The next 6 to 8 weeks are crucial for Kovid in India, says AIIMS Director Dr Randeep Guleria
The second wave of corona epidemic is still raging in the country. It is heartening to know that less than 30,000 cases are coming up every day for a week. However, there is a festive season ahead that could trigger a weaker accompaniment and even a feast for the third wave. AIIMS Director Dr Randeep Guleria has warned that the next 6 to 8 weeks are very important. If caution is exercised by then, carelessness is not taken, the cases of corona will be greatly reduced.
Guleria said, ‘We have to be careful and cautious during the festive season. If we stay awake for the next 6-8 weeks, we will see a decrease in corona cases. This warning from the directors of AIIMS is also important as the market is very crowded during the festive season, which is most conducive to the spread of the virus. In the next one or two months, there are many festivals like Dussehra, Diwali, Chhath, Christmas.
