Only local spike in COVID-19 in India, no 4th wave: ICMR

The current spike in the number daily COVID-19 cases in India cannot be termed as the fourth wave of pandemic, Samiran Panda, additonal Director General of the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR), as saying by IANS on Sunday.

Speaking exclusively to IANS, Panda said the surge has been observed at district levels, hence it cannot be said that the country is moving towards a fourth wave.

“Some surges have been observed at district levels. This is a called a blip… Blips are confined to certain geographical regions of the country,” he said.

Panda said that first of all, the surge has been found at some local levels which is due to the testing ratio.

“Secondly, what we see is just a blip and we cannot say that entire states are under the grip of Covid.”
