The corona wave is affecting differently in every state. Somewhere the cases are rising high and in some places it's decreasing. If there is a particular pattern for rising cases in any state then, it might affect the other states too.

In Maharashtra and also in Pune division the precaution’s measurement strategy has been prepared by the panel of experts, which will be implemented in coming weeks to avoid the extreme cause of the second wave.
Public health expert Dr Arvind Kushwaha of All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), Nagpur, said the condition of the second wave is worse than the first wave but the situation in India will be different.
He also said “Since many people were exposed to the novel Coronavirus in the first wave, a greater number of cases were reported. The number of people vulnerable to the infection in cities like Pune and elsewhere in Maharashtra, remains less. Due to this, the number of cases classically will increase, but will not be more than what was seen in August and September,” (sources-TOI)
“Earlier, the virus was new and awareness was less in the public, leading to delays in treatment. Even doctors were less aware and did not have a uniform line of treatment and medicines that would work. Facilities to tackle COVID-19 patients were also less for the number of cases detected. Now when everyone is well aware of the virus, deaths will decrease,”
The senior experts showed their concern and said, the cases are low but we should not forget the severe condition of Corona. There are only two ways to handle this situation: either get the vaccine or everyone gets the infection and follow the treatment. The effect of the second wave will start in December and January.
Chairman of Maharashtra Communicable Diseases Prevention and Control Technical Committee Public health expert Dr Subhash Salunkhe said, The strategy has been drafted by the expert panels to prevent the second wave of Covied-19, and will be submitting the recommendation the state government director of health services and Pune divisional commissioner.
As per the recommendation that private hospitals will handle the cases like fever and flu symptoms. In any condition the number of tests for Covid-19 should not be decreased. The number of beds in hospitals should be the same. The committee has also asked to keep an eye on the total number of daily cases, so that we can evaluate the rate of cases, rising or falling down.
Every facility like bed, medicines, doctors, and staff should remain in place to handle the second wave of Covied-19.
