As per experts, India has still not hit its COVID peak. Last month, economists released a report that had said India would reach its peak once its recovery rate crosses the 75 per cent mark. This is the average benchmark set across countries. The report goes on to suggest that while states such as Delhi and Tamil Nadu, have already hit their peaks and breached them, as many as 22 states (of the 27 that were part of the study) are yet to hit their peaks. Since a few states are not testing adequately, there is no telling when India as a collective can hit its peak. Apart from ramping up testing in an aggressive manner across cities, and the hinterlands, the country will need to put a leash on public events for now.
