Manindra Agrawal said to ANI.

“We expect the decline also to be equally sharp, and if the peak hits in January, then by the

middle of March, the wave will be over,” the analyst stated.

Its IIT Kanpur professor also stated that since Delhi has reported nearly 22,000 new cases

every day, the capital city will see a staggering 40,000 cases each day during peak times

next few days.
