He emphasized on effective medicines to prevent the disease. Citing the status of World Health Organization approval for India’s vaccine, Pal expressed confidence that the global body would come up with a positive response, before the end of this month. The most burning question among most Indians is whether there will be a third wave of Corona? He said, “Cannot be ruled out. Next three to four months is the time when the vaccine is being introduced to build herd immunity. We need to protect ourselves and avoid the outbreak.

It is possible near me whether we are all together in this fight.” He also cautioned against the big festive season like Diwali and Dussehra. He said that these festivals are falling in the next few months, which if not handled properly. There could potentially be a huge spread of the disease. When he was asked a question on the recommendation of restrictions on people in such a condition, senior doctors in India were unsure about it. He hoped that the world would be lucky with the drug As with the vaccine. He said, “We have a risky time coming. There are ways to remove the virus, in principle, in such a situation. And there are guidelines to impose restrictions in a phased manner. And it should be implemented on time.”
