New Delhi: The coronavirus pandemic continues to wreak havoc in India. The number of Covid-19 patients is growing rapidly and people are losing their lives.
There is only one question in everyone’s mind, when will the coronavirus pandemic end. Will this figure increase further?
Meanwhile, scientists at the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) have revealed when the peak of the second wave will arrive. Scientists have estimated on the basis of their mathematical model that the second wave of the coronavirus pandemic in India will peak between May 11-15.
Scientists say that at that time the number of patients treated in the country can reach 33 to 3.5 million and thereafter there will be a sharp reduction in cases by the end of May. In India, 3,32,730 (3.32 lakh) new cases of infection were reported on a single day on Friday while 2263 people died. With this, the number of under-treated patients in the country has increased to 24,28,616.
Scientists guessed with this method
Scientists from IIT Kanpur and IIT Hyderabad have estimated the number of under-treated patients to rise to 10 lakhs by mid-May before the reduction in cases, based on the applied ten susceptible, undetected, tested (positive) and remove approach (formula) model.
Scientists say that Delhi, Haryana, Rajasthan and Telangana may touch new highs in the context of new cases from April 25 to 30 while Maharashtra and Chhattisgarh may have already reached the peak in terms of new cases.
