The new infections had stayed above 200,000-mark since April 15. The new cases have been increasing at an alarming pace since the country broke the one lakh case barrier on April 4 when it reported 1,03,558 new Covid-19 cases.

Within a fortnight, the numbers doubled, which sounded alarm bells throughout the country as medical infrastructure, doctors and patients grappled with resource crunch. India had crossed the grim milestone of two crores on May 4.

However, cases have started to come down since June, with many states gradually allowing relaxations in lockdown curbs.

However, the discovery of a new variant of the virus named Delta plus variant has given rise to worries of an impending third wave of the pandemic.

The Ministry of Health has already written to three states to ensure that the variant does not cause a fresh outbreak in the country.

AIIMS Director Randeep Guleria has predicted that if Covid-19 norms are not properly followed the third wave could strike within six to eight weeks and added that until a large part of the population is not vaccinated, social distancing and other protocols remain the best weapon to fight Covid-19.
