Study from IIT Kanpur warns India likely to witness fourth Covid-19 wave in June 2022

As India is witnessing a decrease in the slope of the Covid-19 cases, a new study conducted by IIT Kanpur warns of another wave which is said to be the fourth wave of Covid-19 in the country in June this year. People of India are now taking a long breathe as it is being noted that there is a slight decline in the Covid-19 graph. 

The study noted that the fourth wave which is expected to spread the country in June will continue for 4 months, and the surge needs to be examined, said the study.  The severity of the fourth Covid wave will depend on many factors, such as the nature of the variant, the vaccination status across the country. The study published in MedRxiv has to be peer-reviewed, said the team who led the study. The team comprises Sabara Parshad Rajeshbhai, Subhra Sankar Dhar, and Shalabh of IIT Kanpur’s Mathematic department.

The study also noted, “moreover, the 99% confidence interval for the date, when the curve will reach the peak, is approximately from August 15, 2022, to August 31, 2022.”
