The Centre on Thursday indicated that the country's Covid vulnerability may increase in the coming months of October and November. Centre's warning comes even as threats of a third wave are looming large across the nation. "The coming two-three months are crucial, any surge seen has to be curbed immediately," Niti Aayog member (health) Dr VK Paul said during the press meet of the Union health ministry. Several projections earlier stated that the third wave of the pandemic may hit the country during that time. However, with over 62% of the population partially vaccinated, the situation will be different from the first and the second waves.
