India’s R-value Continues To Fall With The Current Covid-19 Wave Expected To Climax on February 6th

According to the institute’s early investigation, the India’s aforementioned value was 1.57 from January 14 to 21, compared to 2.2 from January 7 to 13.

Accroding To India’s Research

According to a research undertaken by Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Madras, the current Omicron-driven cycle of the Covid-19 pandemic in the country is projected to reach its climax in the next 14 days, by February 6.

The outcome is founded on the institution’s examination of the national ‘R-value,’ which fell even more in the week during January 14-21, according to the institute.

The number of persons who can transmit a virus from someone who is previously infected is referred to as the ‘R-value.’ According to a research done by IIT Madras, the aforementioned value was 1.57 in the most recent round, compared to 2.2 from January 7-13, 4 from January 1-6, and 2.9 from December 25-31 last year.

The R-values for individual cities were 0.56 for Kolkata, 0.67 for Mumbai, 0.98 for Delhi, and 1.2 for Chennai, according to the statistics.

When this number falls below 1, the epidemic is said to be over.

Accroding to Jayant Jha

Dr. Jayant Jha, Assistant Professor, Department of Mathematics, IIT-M, explained the statistics by saying that the wave has already crested in Kolkata and Mumbai, indicating that the pandemic has become ‘endemic’ in the two cities.

“As a result, according to the study, the current coronavirus wave will likely peak in the following 14 days, until February 6.” “Our earlier forecast indicated that the peak will most likely occur around February 1 and 15,” Jha added.
