Explained: How can India fight third Covid wave | IndiaSpend

May 29, 2021 17:14 IST

How well is India prepared to tackle the third Covid19 wave and what lessons have the first two Covid waves taught us? IndiaSpend's Govindraj Ethiraj discusses with S Vincent Rajkumar, Editor in Chief of Blood Cancer Journal and Professor, Mayo Clinic, USA.


Vincent Rajkumar says the fundamental lesson he learnt is that the first wave of Covid could be controlled because of the lockdown and the fact that they took precautions due to the virus scare, and not because Indians had any special resistance due to the climatic conditions. He says doctors are making one big mistake by overprescribing drugs for Covid-19.
