The situation is similar to that of the first and second wave of coronavirus wherein according to the statistics 31.5 per cent of deaths took place in the course of the first three days of hospitalization, during the first wave, and in the following, four to six days the death per cent was 22.4. During the second wave, the death per cent was 30.4% till the third day and between 3-6 days the death per cent was 23.7%.
