One in three persons believe that the fourth wave of COVID-19 has hit the Indian shores, a survey conducted by community social media platform LocalCircles has found. At least 55 percent surveyed, however, are highly confident that experts in India will be able to effectively handle things in the event of a fourth wave of the pandemic.

The findings released on April 27 come at a time when the daily COVID-19 cases are rising with the epicentre being Delhi and the National Capital region (NCR). The Union Health Ministry said on April 27 that 2,927 COVID-19 cases were recorded across the country in the last 24 hours with a daily positivity rate of 0.58 per cent.
