India is still recovering from the devastating second wave of the Covid-19 pandemic, but a third wave is already being discussed. The World Health Organization and certain ministers have raised concerns about the possibility of a third wave of the Covid-19 pandemic for months. After the second wave completely toppled the nation's healthcare system, it is more important than ever to provide warnings now. There are predictions that a third wave will hit in October. The state's only 7% adult population has only received both vaccines so far. The third wave, even if it hits, will have only modest effects if 80% can receive both doses by September. But in every state, vaccines are in short supply. Only the second dose provides much protection, and the first dose provides very little protection. The main goal is to get to older people faster, so there will be less hospitalization this time around. Particularly for those who completed their second doses. We need to manage the elderly population in a way to prevent a big surge of hospitalizations and deaths, which was the grounding force in the past. Because of the highly contagious Delta variant, the third wave of Coronavirus infections is taking place in the UK. Approximately one out of every 540 people in the country is now infected with the deadly virus, and the Delta variant represents the majority of reported cases. Coronavirus and hospital treatment can be avoided with a single dose of vaccine about 70 percent, even with the Delta variant. Coronavirus infection rates are reduced by more than 90 percent among those who receive the recommended two doses.

 Future waves can be prevented by vaccination. There have been three vaccines used in India so far. To date, only 40.02 lakh second doses have been administered, according to the Department of Health and Family Welfare.

According to reports, it can be said that a possible 3rd wave would affect mildly, only if 80% of the country’s population is administered with both the vaccine doses by the end of September. Experts’ prediction says that a 3rd wave might hit us by August-September. Presently, only 17% of the adult populace has received both vaccine doses. But the administration of the doses to 80% of the Indian population within such a small time frame is a Herculean task. Is the central government up for this challenge?
