The number of active cases of COVID-19 has been slowly reducing since late September 2020 and it was then that most public places, colleges, offices, and schools began to open. Despite this, COVID protocols were being maintained with the maximum inspection in all such public places. As of February 2021, more than half of all the Indian states reported that there was not a single death due to COVID-19 and this opened the way in some much-needed hope(Source). But suddenly we are facing the worst result of Covid-19. With a massive second wave of coronavirus in India, one in five people in the world is currently being infected in India.

‘Why Covid-19 is spreading so faster’ has been a question that public health experts and scientists are trying to figure out — is it because the public is not strictly following COVID-19 guidelines (wearing masks and maintaining safe distance), or due to the new mutant of the COVID-19 virus or a combination of both? On the other hand, experts are trying to find the answer to another question- why is the second wave of Covid-19 so dangerous?

Why is the second wave of Covid-19 so dangerous?

As we know that the second wave of Covid-19 is spreading much, much faster than the first one. The double mutant variant of the coronavirus has produced a significant rise in the number of infected cases. Scientists believe that this hassle is about 70 times more infectious than the previous one. The second wave of Covid-19 disease, has brought the country’s healthcare system to its knees.
