New Delhi: A third wave of COVID-19 infection is inevitable, Principal Scientific Advisor to the Centre K Vijay Raghavan on Wednesday said.

He said this is due to higher levels of circulating virus.

Raghavan did not say anything about the timing of the third wave, but added that everybody must be ready for the new wave.

The top scientific advisor told a press conference that the phase three is inevitable because of higher levels of circulating virus. Raghavan said that the coronavirus jabs being administered to people presently in India are effective against current variants of coronavirus.
