The third wave of Covid is likely to hit the country at the end of August and chances are that it will not be as intense as the second wave, Dr Samiran Panda, Head of Epidemiology and Infectious Diseases at the Indian Council of Medical Research, has told NDTV. "There would be a nationwide third wave but that does not mean that it would be as high or as intense as the second wave," Dr Panda told NDTV in an exclusive interview. Four things, he said, could lead to the third wave. The first of these is an instance where the immunity acquired in the first and second wave due drop. "If that goes down, it could lead to a third wave," he said.
