Seroprevalence in the range of 80-84 per cent in the general population is required to prevent the third wave in Odisha. Ganjam results underline the fact
The third wave of Covid-19 is unlikely to have an impact as severe as the second wave.
DMET (Directorate of Medical Education and Training) director Dr CBK Mohanty today said that the third wave may not make any impact in Odisha due to mass vaccination
State Public Health Director Niranjan Mishra said though the situation is gradually returning to normalcy, people should adhere to all Covid protocols as the next three months are crucial.
Only a 'neutralising' serosurvey in Odisha can say whether the possible third wave will hit the State. This will also help in identifying the size of the vulnerable population, including children, to the third wave
