Is the Worst Over!

It is likely that India may not see a big second wave of COVID19. This does not mean we can drop our guard and get back to pre-pandemic levels of congregations; rather, it means that if we continue to be careful, we will all be safe. Covid-19 vaccines seem to have come in at just the right time for Indians to battle the COVID head on!

India, Argentina and Poland are the three countries among the 15 nations having the highest number of COVID cases that are not showing a second peak.

In India the risk of a second wave is small in most places across the country because most people have already been exposed. For the same reason, we might not need to be overly concerned about the new variants either. Unexposed and susceptible people will continue to get infected. If immunity lasts for only a year or less, then we may have small peaks at intervals for the next few years.
