Health Ministry says, 'don't talk about third wave like weather update'

The Health Ministry cautioned on Tuesday that continued major violations of Covid-19-appropriate behavior could undo the accomplishments made against the pandemic thus far. The third wave of Covid-19, according to Lav Agarwal, Joint Secretary, Health Ministry, could be triggered by this behavior, according to a press conference. In April and May, India had a catastrophic second wave of the pandemic, with record cases and fatalities, despite a lack of healthcare facilities and medical oxygen. Most states imposed stringent lockdowns at the time, but have since begun to open up. Thousands of tourists are flocking to the country's hill stations as the number of daily coronavirus infections falls.
