Manaliโ€™s Alarming Photos: Are we close to a third-wave ?

ICMR had already said that the third-Covid is inevitable. Due to which some people fear that lockdown-like restrictions may be imposed if the third wave of coronavirus strikes the nation. So many people decided to use this opportunity to visit some places.

Still now India is witnessing 40,000 cases and around 700 death everyday. Although the third wave is 100% to strike but it was predicted to come in October, till which India could have achieved around 40% of vaccination. And vaccine do help in achieving herd immunity and preventing waves, for example like in USA, 70% people are vaccinated which nearly ended Covid there.

But these crowded trips of people can be proved to be a complete disaster. It can speed up the process and bring the 3rd-wave as soon as possible.

We are still unprepared, both physically and mentally, the only photos more scaring then that of the Manaliโ€™s were those of covid-19 suffering people, doctors, nurses etc. If we donโ€™t take proper measures now then surely in the upcoming month it is going to be very difficult.
