By following the rules and regulations, it may be possible to stay away from the future wave of coronavirus pandemic. Aggarwal has said “We would like to request to everyone — when we talk about the third wave, we are taking it as a weather update and not understanding its seriousness and our responsibilities associated with it”

Prime Minister Narendra Modi has met eight chief ministers of northeast states and discussed about the issue. By looking at the crowd flocking at the hill station that too without mask, Narendra Modi is concerned
Modi has said “It is true that tourism and business have been greatly affected due to Corona. But today I will say with great emphasis that it is not right to have huge crowds in hill stations, markets without masks. We all need to work together to stop the third wave of Covid-19 pandemic”

By following the COVID-19 protocol perfectly, third wave can be prevented. Due to constant mutation of the virus, threat can escalate rapidly. Therefore, prevention and treatment is only solution on the occasion. Vaccination has started all over the country. However, it will take time to vaccinate the entire population.
