The next three weeks are crucial for India in terms of the spread of COVID-19, said Dr Rakesh Mishra, Director of CSIR- CCMB, adding that it is very important for people to follow guidelines very strictly. He emphasised that people must follow the guidelines very strictly to prevent themselves from being infected with COVID-19.

“The next 3 weeks are very critical for India in terms of the spread of the infection. People should take utmost care and precautions,” he said. Regarding the dearth of hospital beds, oxygen cylinders and vaccines, Dr Mishra said that if the situation continues, the country will be in a disastrous state.

Speaking about the increasing number of COVID-19 positive cases in the country Dr Mishra said that the second wave was very much expected. “In infections like Covid-19, it is quite common that there would be a second wave as the virus mutates and whichever of the mutated variant virus is stronger will spread faster. There have been a lot of new variants that have emerged. More people will be infected with the mutated variant in India, if they don’t adhere to the Covid guidelines.”

“Though the vaccine is a very important tool to defeat the pandemic, people must still remember to follow the Covid guidelines as the virus can be spread from even those who have been vaccinated. No matter what variant comes, it cannot spread if we stick to the Covid guidelines,” he added.

Mishra appealed to the people to come forwards and get vaccinated. “To overcome this pandemic, the people must be vaccinated in large number and further even after getting vaccinated, one must not forget to use masks, he said. “After a thorough air sampling of the coronavirus, it has been found that the virus can spread through the air. It can move up to 20 feet in a closed area. Wearing a mask can keep one 80 to 90 percent safe. If the other person is also wearing a mask, then one can be 99 percent safe,” he added.
