New Covid-19 cases do not indicate third wave

The new cases detected in the country so far are yet to be indicative of a third wave and that it will require about one week or two of monitoring, says an official in charge of Covid-19 control efforts by the Health and Sports Ministry.

There have been a surge in Covid-19 cases since late last month.

“For now, it is not the third wave yet,” he said.

“It is still too early to say it is the third wave because most positive cases found are at border areas.”

He added that if authorities could control it early by emphasising control and prevention measures, it could lessen the chances of it becoming a third wave.

“On the other hand, if the control efforts are low and public cooperation is weak then a third wave is possible,” he said.

A stay-at-home order had been issued for Tonzam in Chin State, Tamu and Kalay townships. — Eleven Media Group/ANN
