Even as India grapples with the ferocious second wave of Covid-19, the government Wednesday warned that a third wave of the pandemic was “inevitable”, although a time-frame for it could not be predicted. “Phase three is inevitable given the higher levels of circulating virus, but it is not clear on what time-scale this phase three will occur.
