As per the experts, if the third wave of COVID-19 pandemic hits the country, India can be seeing 6,00,000 new covid infections every day if it fails to increase the pace of vaccination.

According to a recent study, daily infections can come down to 2,00,000, if the 10 million a day vaccination plan is executed successfully in the country.

Even though experts have predicted a new wave in the coming weeks, most of them see it as weaker than the previous one.
