A study conducted by IIT Madras has revealed an important and equally reassuring fact as the third wave of corona outbreak is on in India.


The new study report on the third wave of corona in India.

The number of patients is likely to increase in the next 14 days.

Mumbai, Kolkata cities claim the end of the crop phase.



The Omicron variant has caused the third wave of corona infection in India and is currently witnessing an outbreak of the disease. On Sunday, 3 lakh 33 thousand new patients were registered in the country, but in the last 24 hours, 3 lakh 6 thousand patients have been added. Researchers at IIT Madras, however, have differed on the issue, claiming that the third wave has reached its peak. According to this, the third wave of the corona is expected to reach its peak in the next 14 days.



There are differences of opinion as to whether the third wave of the corona has reached its peak. In it, researchers from IIT Madras have studied the overall situation regarding Corona and put forward some arguments. According to the report, the number of coronary heart disease patients is expected to reach a record high in the next 14 days by February 6. Earlier, it was said that the third wave would be at its peak between February 1 and February 15.



According to researchers at IIT Madras, India has seen its R-value drop for two consecutive weeks. It shows the rate of spread of corona infection. The R-value has come down to 1.57 between January 14 and 21. The R-value was 2.2 percent between January 7 and 13, R-4 between January 1 and 6, and 2.9 percent between December 25 and 31. The decline is considered a good sign.


What is R-Value?

The R-value determines how many people a person infected with a corona can infect. If the R-value is one, the infected person is afraid of infecting another person. If a person infected with Corona has an R-value of three, it can infect three more people, it has been reported.



A great relief to Mumbai, Kolkata:

Nilesh S., Professor, IIT Madras. Upadhyay and Professor S., The research was conducted under the chairmanship of Sundar. At present, the R-value is 0.67 in Mumbai, 0.98 in Delhi, 1.2 in Chennai, and 0.56 in Kolkata. Given these figures, both Mumbai and Kolkata seem to have reached the end of the third wave, while Delhi and Chennai are on the threshold, said Dr. Krishna Kumar, Associate Professor, Department of Mathematics, IIT Madras. Jayant Jha said. The ICMR states that individuals who do not have symptoms of contact with a corona need not be tested for corona. He also said that the number of patients may be lower than expected.
