Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday said the focus should now be on how to prevent a Covid-19 third wave rather than discussing when it would hit India.
The PM’s comments to chief ministers of northeastern states came even as top Union government officials highlighted evidence to show the third wave already forming around the world and stressed the need to immediately step up measures and be vigilant.
They said warnings of the COVID-19 third wave were being casually discussed in the manner of weather reports.
