Second India COVID-19 wave extra catastrophic than the primary

Amitabh Kant, CEO of NITI Aayog, a government think tank on public policy, said today that the second wave of COVID-19 in India was more disastrous than the first.

  1. The CEO stated that a sufficient amount of the vaccine will be available from August.
  2. The need to build hospital infrastructure, human resources and an intensive care unit at the grassroots level was highlighted as an opportunity for the private sector to help the country.
  3. It is feared that a third wave will affect children and people in rural areas.

The second wave overwhelmed the health system for a while, and the government has taken a number of measures since then, with a steady decline in the number of active COVID-19 cases.

“The vaccination campaign has been stepped up and the private sector has played a very important role in managing the pandemic and has been a major contributor to the government’s efforts,” said Kant.

At the virtual “Interactive Session on Saving Lives and Livelihood”, organized by the Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FICCI) together with the hospitality company OYO, Mr. Kant praised the role of the private sector in the entire vaccination campaign.

“There may be a slight imbalance between supply and demand for vaccines from June to July, but a sufficient amount of vaccines will be available by August. From then on we should be able to properly vaccinate everyone in India and that should help us, ”he added.
