Right when the situations in the Indian states are returning back to normalcy with a drastic dip in coronavirus cases, various health organisations and private studies setting off alarms over the second wave raised tensions in the country.
While states like Delhi, Rajasthan, Gujarat, Maharashtra and Madhya Pradesh are already registering a sudden spike in cases hinting the probability of deadly second wave, Telugu states are now under the union health department’s scanner.
Festive season and the onset of winter may aggravate the situation. Kartheeka maasam turning auspicious for weddings further increased the risk of infections.
AP, one of the states recording the highest number of cases ever since the pandemic hit the country has been registering a slight increase in cases, as many experts speculated it to be the genesis of the second wave.
As AP government is yet to respond on the ongoing situations, Telangana Chief Minister KCR has asked officials to gear up to face the second wave of COVID threat.
The Telangana government has decided to increase the number of Covid tests conducted in the state every day to 65,000. Besides closely monitoring the pandemic, the health authorities of the states reportedly started issuing advisories to the public to take all possible precautions, including masks, social distancing and to avoid celebrations with festive season right around the corner.
