The United States eases travel restrictions to India and Pakistan, even as the region prepares for the third wave of coronavirus infections. A week ago, Canada extended its ban on direct passenger flights from India for another month due to the Delta variant of COVID-19.

“From within the Indian government, there has been a statement that we need to prepare for a third wave, which may come as early as late August,” President/CEO of Bibles For The World John Pudaite says.

“It’s continuous. We’re just getting over the second wave in the northeast region, [and] now the third wave is going to hit mainland India.”

A report published last week surrounds India’s statistics with skepticism. Indian officials denied the report’s projections, claiming researchers were at fault. India has reported more than 418,000 COVID deaths so far, with over half occurring since April 16th.
