The second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic has hit India quite hard. Coming at a time when people had started going back to “normalcy”, the second wave is expected to be quite dreadful – as we can see through the rising number of active cases on a daily basis. Experts believe that we are yet to witness the peak of the second wave and warn people that the months of May and June are going to be quite tough.

While it is highly debated over what caused this sudden peak in the number of cases in India (let’s not forget the election rallies and Kumbh Mela), the fact is that the situation is getting really bad, and it is up to every citizen of the country to step up and fight the virus. No, we are not asking you to get out of your house (in fact, quite the opposite), but this article will tell you what you can do on your part to prevent the virus.

Is The Virus More Dangerous This Time?

One might think that what’s the big deal; we dealt with it last year, then how is it different this time around? For starters, the virus has mutated quite a lot. Dr. Suneela Garg, member of the COVID India Task Force of Lancet Commission explained in an interview that the variant of the virus prevalent in the country is airborne.
