There Is No Community Transmission Of Coronavirus In India: ICMR

Mumbai: According to the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR), there is no community transmission of COVID-19 in the country on Thursday.

Professor (Dr.) Balaram Bhargava, Director General, ICMR, said in a press conference in New Delhi that the prevalence of infection is less than one percent in small districts, while it is just over one percent in urban areas.

“India is such a large country and the prevalence is so low that we have found that in small districts the prevalence is less than one percent, in the urban areas it might be a little over one percent and slightly higher in containment areas. India is not in community transmission,” Bhargava said.

However, he said that the country needs to continue with the strategy of testing, tracing, tracking, and quarantine and taking preventive measures as they have been successful so far. “The guards should not be disappointed anymore,” he said.
