Amid concerns among Indians of the predicted third wave of the COVID-19 pandemic, AIIMS Director Dr Randeep Guleria has said he feels that the subsequent wave is unlikely to be as severe as the second one. In an interview with NDTV on Saturday, Dr Guleria said, “There are a lot of debates on whether the third wave will be more severe than the second… my feeling is the subsequent wave will not be as bad as the second.”
However, the AIIMS chief cautioned people against underestimating COVID-19 and its variants. “We need to learn from the second wave and prepare accordingly to deal with a possible third,” Dr Guleria said.
