When Will Third Wave Peak In India? IIT Kanpur Professor Tells What Mathematical Model Says

“We are barely 9 days in the new year, and yet we have no respite from the Covid-19 yet. On the contrary, the coronavirus cases in the country are rapidly increasing. The Health Ministry says the new Omicron variant of Covid-19 could be fuelling the high number of infections in India. Today.

But today, we are going to talk about sheer numbers. What can we expect looking at rapidly increasing coronavirus cases. And to discuss that we are joined by Prof Manish Agrawal, He is a professor at IIt Kanpur and is working on a program called Sutra, a mathematical model on covid-19 cases in India.
