Covid-19 Fourth Wave Likely In June

Covid-19 Fourth Wave | India is likely to witness the fourth covid wave in mid to late June, and the surge is to continue for about 4 months, a recent study by a team of IIT Kanpur scientists has suggested.

The severity, however, will depend on the nature of the variant, the vaccination status across the country.

This research was led by Sabara Parshad Rajeshbhai, Subhra Sankar Dhar and Shalabh of IIT Kanpur’s Mathametic department using a mixture of Gaussian distribution based on the data on Zimbabwe.
