New Delhi: Amid an unprecedented increase in cases of coronavirus in the second wave of the epidemic, the government on Wednesday said a third phase was inevitable given the number of circulating viruses and urged citizens to prepare for the new Covid-19 epidemic.

UK VijayRaghavan, Principal Scientific Advisor to the Center, also said that “the third stage is inevitable in view of the high levels of the circulating virus”.
“But it is not clear when this third phase will happen. We have to be prepared for new waves, ”he added.
VijayRaghavan said “the exception is conveyed in the same way as the initial difficulty”.

The Principal Adviser for Science at the Center said “vaccines are effective compared to current varieties”.
“New species will appear all over the world and in India as well but the alternative that increases transmission may be the plain. Differences in the immune system and those that reduce or increase the severity of disease will continue, ”he added.
VijayRaghavan went on to say that scientists in India and around the world are working to anticipate these species and act quickly against them by warning early and building transformed tools.
“It is a comprehensive research program that is taking place in India and abroad,” he added.
