The second wave of Covid-19 in India is growing as fast as it will end. A study by Credit Suisse states that the speed at which people are getting infected in the second wave of Covid should be eradicated as soon as possible. The study estimated that 40 percent of the country’s population would develop antibodies by the end of April.
It said that by the end of December last year 21 percent of the population had developed antibodies. By the end of April, it is estimated to add seven percent of the population. In addition, 12 percent more people will develop immunity through vaccination. In this way, 40 percent of the population will be out of danger of death. Not only this, 28 percent of the population will get immunity through infection. Additionally, at least 13 percent of the people will have taken their first dose of vaccine by the end of April. The study further states that 87 percent of people who die due to Covid are over 50 years of age.
