Till…’No Community Transmission’

India already crossed 53 lakh covid positive cases with average 88000 cases per day. Despite the rapid spike in the number of cases and deaths due to COVID-19, Authorities are still denying community transmission. The Ministry of Health & Family Welfare reiterated that there are clusters of cases and pockets of localized transmission but they denied any community transmission, citing that community transmission is not defined by the WHO on July 22. According to a study conducted by Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) among patients with Severe Acute Respiratory Illness (SARI) in 52 districts of 20 states/union territories of India, reported that around 40% patients with COVID-19 reported no contact with any confirmed cases or international travel history. The current situation has raised several concerns over planning and utilizing the existing resources of the country to fight coronavirus when disease status in India is still being debated.
