The rise of covid is touching heights every day. But the rate of recovery is also improving as the days are passing. The study shows that use of mask and social distancing will help preventing more than 2 lakhs of the death in India. This will lower down the risk of death meanwhile there’s no study about the depletion of the curve.
“India’s epidemic is far from over, as a large proportion of the population is still susceptible,” IHME Director, Christopher Murray, said in a statement.
“In fact, our modelling shows there is a wide range of potential outcomes, depending on the actions that governments and individuals take today, tomorrow, and into the near future. Mask-wearing and social distancing are crucial to mitigate the spread of the virus,” Murray explained.
My first view is that the IHME model predicts a peak in infections only by early to mid-December, peak numbers of close to 6 million new infections per day and total deaths of about 500,000 in the ‘no intervention’ scenario,” Menon told PTI.
