Covid will start becoming endemic in India in the next six months, a top expert has said, asserting that a new variant can’t alone bring a third wave of infections.
Dr Singh said Covid becoming endemic would mean the infection becoming more manageable and easier on the health infrastructure.
“75 crore people have been vaccinated. If vaccine effectiveness is 70 per cent, then around 50 crore people in India have got immunity. A single dose gives 30-31% immunity. So the 30 crore people, who have received a single dose, are also immunised,” he said.
