Precautions necessary to avoid possible COVID-19 third wave: Health Experts


SRINAGAR: Warning against not adhering to the COVID-19 appropriate behaviour, experts on Monday said that all people, even those fully vaccinated, must follow all the precautionary measures to avoid the third wave and save a precious life.

With the positivity virus graph on the decline, people across the Kashmir valley are seen roaming at the busiest places without masks and not adhering to the social distancing norms to keep the virus at bay.

Medical experts have warned against the possible third wave in Jammu and Kashmir and are continuously advising people to follow all the precautionary measures to avoid its intensity.

Notably, the government has started a vaccination drive in all the areas of the Kashmir valley including the door-to-door service to fight the deadly Coronavirus.

Valley’s well-known pulmonologist Dr Khursheed said that if people don’t follow the necessary precautions the virus will spread.

“Even though the vaccination is going on, people need to maintain appropriate behavior to avoid its further spread. Even those fully vaccinated need to adhere to all the necessary precautions,” Khursheed said. “We only have two pivotal things to fight against this virus which include vaccination and necessary precautions.”

Another senior health official wishing not to be named said that it’s very vital to follow the precautionary measures to fight the possible third wave and stop it from further spreading and consuming human lives.

He said that the virus has already left a huge impact on human life and mental health.

The health authorities in the valley have so far vaccinated a total of 4,001,041 individuals against the virus while the drive is ongoing across the valley even at the farthest places—(KNO)
