Bengaluru: According to a report by the Technical Advisory Committee, the state is likely to face the third wave of infections in October-November 2021.
“Fully vaccinated senior citizens would be safe by then. Those below 18 years would be most vulnerable,” said TAC chief Dr MK Sudarshan. Experts argue that Karnataka’s experience, and that of European countries, shows that the third wave will be definitely there and the administration should be ready to tackle it.
Dr Sudarshan noted that children would be more vulnerable in this situation. He stated that there are trials of Pfizer vaccines on children. “By then we may get vaccines for children too,” he said.
