After being on a denial mode for several months since covid outbreak, Union health minister Harsh Vardhan agreed that India is in the throes of community transmission of the disease. However the community transmission is limited only to certain districts and states, the health minister said while responding to a query during his weekly interaction with his social media audience — ‘Sunday Samvaad’. West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee, had recently mentioned instances of community transmission in her state.”In different pockets across various states, including West Bengal, community transmission is expected to occur, especially in dense areas. However, this is not happening across the country. It is limited to certain districts occurring in limited states,” Harsh Vardhan said adding that as of yet, no mutation of coronavirus has been detected in India, which is either more transmission efficient or more pathogenic.
