On the other hand, the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation has stocks of more than 5 lakh doses of Covid vaccine for the first time since the vaccination campaign began on January 16. But city officials say only a few have shown up to get bitten due to festival season. “Even those who were supposed to take the second hit stayed away,” an article reported by India time officials said.
India has reported 10,853 new cases, 526 deaths and 12,432 recoveries in the past 24 hours. The country’s active caseload currently stands at 1,44,845.

While this is good news, Maharashtra, which had experienced very severe first and second waves, is likely to experience an equally severe third wave, according to projections made by the Center and shared with the state government. According to a media report, the state is expected to see the number of active cases of the Covid-19 disease reach as high as 1.2 million at the height of the third wave. Therefore, the state government has already started preparations for the third wave. The state’s maximum number of active cases – 698,354 – was observed on April 25 of this year.
In a report in the Hindustan Times, N Ramaswami, commissioner of the National Health Mission, Maharashtra, a vertical of the Union Ministry of Health that works closely with the state, said: “We are preparing for 1 , 2 million active cases in the third wave. “
Previously, Maharashtra’s Health Minister Rajesh Tope said the COVID task force was wary of the third wave, which could hit the state after Diwali. “The second wave of the pandemic is not yet over. But there are no favorable conditions for a third wave at this time. The state task force has warned of a third wave after Diwali season. We are assessing the situation, ”Tope said.
Last month, however, the number of Covid-19 patients currently on treatment fell 55.6%. Maharashtra has also not seen a sudden increase in delay cases, despite the easing of restrictions. Tope said on Saturday that there could be no room for complacency. As of October 6, the state had 33,181 active Covid-19 patients, which fell to 14,714 on November 6. The state’s peak active workload – 698,354 – was recorded on April 25 of this year.
