COVID 19 AND THE THIRD WAVE
Even after a constant dip in the COVID-19 cases in India, we are afraid of the third wave. Our medical experts fear that the third wave might be the most vulnerable and suggest proper protocols for their safety. A few FAQs were answered by Mr. Yatharth Tyagi, Director of Yatharth Hospitals, discussing the impact of the third wave.
Mr. Yatharth Tyagi says that if we let our guards down by not wearing masks, not maintaining social distance, and not avoiding public gatherings, the situation can be dangerous. The reason is that we saw what happened in the second wave when people were careless and violated COVID protocols. However, he feels that we need to be cautious about the third wave.
Our Director also pointed out the lessons learned during the second wave, for example, oxygen management, and said that every hospital requires oxygen storage. He emphasizes the importance of vaccination for children. It can help reduce the mortality rate if the COVAXIN trials for kids pass soon.
He concluded by saying that the third wave will strike but evading it can't be guaranteed.
