Even as the second wave is just receding from the country, speculations are rife as to when we are to expect a third wave of the deadly Corona Virus. What is clear is that the possibility of a third wave can not be ruled out. While some reports suggest that it may not be as severe as the second wave, a report by the State Bank of India published last month suggests that we can expect the next wave to hit us by mid August and continue to peak by September.
