The severity of the COVID-19 outbreak during the third wave is low as compared to the second wave, but fresh cases are being reported across the country. With the elections approaching, it is being speculated that the number of cases would not see a steep downfall anytime soon.

New Delhi: While a senior government official from Tamil Nadu said that the severity of the COVID-19 outbreak during the third wave is low as compared to the second wave, both Covid and Omicron cases in the country have shown some comparative dip across the state. With the elections approaching, it is being speculated that the number of cases would not see a steep downfall anytime soon, though the effect of the third wave is not being felt as strongly as the second one with lesser patients in need of oxygen and lesser fatalities. Meanwhile, the states are issuing newer measures as a part of preventive practices with the closing of schools, weekend curfews and restrictions on public gatherings in some places.
