Is there a related publication for this?
Vaccinations will play a major role. I am not sure if this was considered. Before second wave, we were not vaccinated a lot. By July end, a major chunk of the population will have at least 1 dose.
When a person is vaccinated, he is not only himself immune, but also breaks the spread which he could have otherwise caused. That will prevent exponential rise. Vaccinations or 100% lockdown will break the chain. In first wave, we went for the later, thus the curve was not steep. For 3rd wave, vaccination will do that job. In the 2nd wave, we didn't have either of these.

Yup but u got to consider this, Covishield only provide 60% protection against delta variant.

Yes, for single dose. Both doses: 92%.

I don't know how govt is planning vaccination. Right now 30cr got one dose. From Mid-may, focus is only on first dose. The second dose component is largely flat in the below pic:

I believe we'll get more vaccines in the coming weeks than current pace. Rishi bagree tweeted that we'll have 1cr doses/day from July 1. 1 week in July should focus majorly on 2nd dose. Also, those who got it in April, May will need the second shot soon, which makes it inevitable for the govt to focus on 2nd dose vaccinations.
Ramping up production is most important right now.
Latest reports also suggest that COVIshield is effective on Delta Plus.
By year end we should restart vaccine diplomacy!

cause of concern is delta+ variant which is already started in MAH .. i heard 40+ cases already . Not sure if covishield or covaxin are protecting against it.

Focus on first dose is there because it helps achieve the herd immunity early and will still protect many. with ramped up prod slowly started to tickling in by first week of July, we shud be able to do consistent 50-60L a Day minimum.

Centre taking over procurement was the master stroke, We wasted good 1-2 months in politics of state VS centre...
