During the past one week, India averaged around 1-1.5 lakh daily active cases. This has made India, the new biggest global COVID-19 hotspot.
The second wave of COVID-19 is three times faster than the first one. Along with this, there is also a rise in the number of deaths. Several states have imposed weekend lockdowns and night curfews for breaking the chain of the virus.
The main problem this time is that the citizens are not following the general COVID protocols and have become carefree. In several states, the small-scale shop owners/businessmen have objected against the lockdown, saying that it will cause a huge economic loss.
Also, these businessmen were not able to earn profits as expected, since the last one year and the second lockdown have made the situation worse for them.
The daily-wage workers were also seen returning to their home-states fearing the extension of lockdown.
Currently, the only sign of relief is that India is the fastest country in terms of vaccinating the citizens [above 45 years of age] against COVID-19.
A report of WHO (World Health Organization), states, “India needs to control the second-wave of COVID-19 at any cost, and shouldn’t wait for the third-wave. If a third wave gets triggered in India, then controlling it will be a much difficult task, and cause a huge economic loss. A large part of its population may lose their jobs. The mental & physical health of the citizens would get severely affected. So, India must impose strict restrictions and break the chain of second COVID wave.”
