What experts have said about Omicron and the 3rd wave of the pandemic

Key sentence:

  • According to these forecasts, India will experience an increase in Covid-19 cases, which could be referred to as the third wave.

Following the outbreak of Omicron, the latest variant of SARS-CoV-2, a 44 percent increase in daily Covid cases on December 29 signals the overall increase in Covid cases that experts and scientific projections predict. 

According to these forecasts, India will experience an increase in Covid-19 cases, which could be referred to as the third wave, but its impact will be less severe than the first and second waves. Experts predict that the tidal wave will pass quickly. The peak is expected to occur in early 2022.

Experts said the following four things:

Researchers at the University of Cambridge developed a tracker that predicted that new infections would rise in the last week of December.

According to an IIT-Kanpur study, the third pandemic wave in India could peak on February 3, 2022. According to this forecast, the increase in cases should have begun by December 15.

> As per the National Covid-19 Supermodel Committee, the third wave will peak early next year. According to the members, once Omicron replaces Delta as the dominant variant, the daily caseload is expected to increase.

Angelique Coetzee, a South African doctor who discovered the Omicron variant, predicted that India would see a spike in Covid cases, primarily due to the Omicron variant, but the infection would be mild. 

“There will be an increase in Omicron-driven COVID-19 cases in India, as well as a high positivity rate. But, hopefully, the vast majority of cases will be as minor as those we see in South Africa, “According to Coetzee.

The following are world trends.

> The fourth wave of the Covid pandemic is underway in most countries, being driven by Omicron.

> It is thought that South Africa has begun to overcome the wave, as the number of Omicron cases in the country is now decreasing.

In the US and the UK, Omicron has supplanted Delta as the dominant strain.

The number of cases and hospitalizations in the United States and the United Kingdom is at an all-time high.
