Professor Gyaneshwer Chaubey, a geneticist at Banaras Hindu University, has posited that the third wave of COVID-19 would be likely to hit around December. He also added that vaccinated individuals, or those who already had the disease would be safe from infection. Ongoing vaccination drives would help boost immunity rates among the citizens. “As the levels of antibodies drop every three months, the chances of the third wave are likely. In this sense, if the level of antibodies falls in the next three months, then a third wave can come. But the ongoing vaccination campaign will help in the fight against the virus. If our immunity is more than 70%, the effect of COVID-19 in that group will be less, and gradually, its frequency will start decreasing. This is what we have to see,” he told sources.
