The above projection is as per the ‘most likely’ scenario; the SEIR model, on the other hand, puts the peak at 10.15 lakh active cases two days earlier, on September 1.
The projections are based on research and data analysis by the Times Fact-India Outbreak Report, a joint effort by data research firm Protiviti and Times Network.
