COVID Prediction: With almost every State seeing a spike after unlock and on the other hand with the most affected cities showing a downward trend, one can say with certain level of confidence that India is the middle of peak coronavirus cases. Whether this peak will end in the next few days or weeks is difficult to say but looking at the Urban trends across the country, it is clear that the current COVID increase cannot be sustained in most cities beyond a week or two
- A Case in point is Karnataka which after shooting up massively has started to remain steady having added the same number of cases week on week
- Uttar Pradesh which appears to be showing a spike is only due to massive increase in testing. Positivity is only at 3-4%
Some States however are likely to take more than a week or two reach peak
- Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu, Bengal, Telangana, Bihar for example where the cases per 100 tests remain high
Overall, it appears that August may be the final month of the most intense battle against COVID. It is not to say that everything will be back to normal from September but it is certainly going to be fewer cases being added everyday than they would be in August. With a vaccine also likely at the end of the year, more good news will continue to flow in from September onwards in this battle against COVID.
