New Delhi: A government-appointed panel of scientists and doctors on Sunday, said that India has crossed the COVID-19 peak and should be able to contain the spread of virus by the end of February 2021.

The committee also underlined that 30 per cent of the population in India has developed immunity.

The committee was headed by Professor M Vidyasagar of IIT Hyderabad who used computer models to map the trajectory of the epidemic in the country.

Its key finding has been that the disease is likely to have peaked in the middle of September, and the total number of infections in India is unlikely to exceed 106 lakh (10.6 million).

So far, 75 lakh people in India have been infected, of which nearly 66 lakh have recovered.

The committee also claimed that the lockdown has had a powerful impact on containing the spread of COVID-19 in the country.

As of now, 1.14 lakh people have died in India because of the disease. However, further lockdowns are “undesirable”, the committee has recommended since they are unlikely to have any significant impact.

The committee added that the upcoming festivals and the approaching winters, might “increase the susceptibility” of the people to this infection, and therefore, has recommended that current protective measures must be continued.

India reported a daily jump of 61,871 coronavirus infections in 24 hours, taking its tally near the 75 lakh-mark, the Health Ministry data this morning showed.
