Bhubaneswar, July 12: Veteran health expert Dr Niroj Mishra on Monday said that taking vaccine before the third wave will decrease the rate of infection during Covid-19 third wave.
Speaking to media personnel, Dr Mishra said, “No case of lambda variant has been detected in India so far, however we need to be more watchful in this regard.”
“ The Union Health Ministry has clarified that maximum Covid cases, which were detected in Tripura and Maharashtra are not delta plus variants. As many as 90 per cent patients are infected by delta variant,” Dr Mishra said.
Besides, maximum Covid cases are being reported from Kerala as the test rate in the state is high, he said.
