IIT Kanpur professor Dr Manindra Agrawal said that the Omicron-triggered coronavirus third wave has reached its peak in Delhi, Kolkata and Mumbai as predicted by IIT’s Sutra model. He also said that COVID-19 will peak in Maharashtra, Gujarat and Haryana this week. “In Maharashtra, it is predicted to peak on 19th. May peak sooner since the trajectory is almost flat at present. Gujarat is predicted to peak on the 19th. Haryana is predicted to peak on 20th,” Dr Agrawal explained. He further mentioned that the COVID-19 wave is predicted to peak on 23rd in Karnataka and it is predicted to peak on 25th January in Tamil Nadu. The IIT-Kanpur also predicted that COVID-19 is predicted to peak on the 30th in Andhra Pradesh. Dr Agrawal, however, added that the number of hospitalisations continues to be very low as less than 1 percent cases reported in Uttar Pradesh need hospitalisation.
