Coronavir s: No evidence of community transmission yet, repeats go nment
NEW DELHI: The go nment on Friday once again reiterated that it has found no evidence yet of any community transmission in India and that the rate of infection remains low with just 2% of 16,002 samples tested on Thursday testing positive.
It also, once again, gave an assurance that the public would be informed if the coronavir s outbreak reached Stage 3 spread.
Responding to media reports that a study by the go nment-controlled ICMR based on random sampling tests conducted on patients with Severe Acute Respiratory Illnesses (SARI) indicated community transmission, Lav Agarwal, joint secretary in the health ministry, said that the report dealt with studies conducted in areas where prevalence of the disease was detected and not in new areas and that the positive rate revealed by the report was 1.8%.
‘Infection rate not high, yet dynamic’
At least 16,002 samples were tested on Thursday, of which only 320, or 2%, tested positive for Covid-19. Based on the samples collected, we can say that the infection rate is not high, although it is dynamic,” Lav Agarwal, joint secretary in the health ministry, said even as he emphasised the need for social distancing.
Referring to the ICMR study that shows 40% of SARI cases had not reported travel or contact history, Agrawal said the conclusions cannot be inferred as community transmission because the tests were conducted in areas where there were Covid-19 cases and people are often not able to recall exact events. “This needs further investigation,” he said.
Go nment experts said even a higher in dence of the disease in an area or clusters does not necessarily add up to community transmission. Several clusters in an area or a city with rapidly multiplying cases and transmission between them amount to community transmission at stage 3.
Offi als said the go nment is closely mon oring trends of serious cases of flu and respiratory diseases, sale of drugs relating to these conditions, and admissions in ICUs. They said a rising in dence of the disease cannot be hidden as patients with tell-tale symptoms will begin cro- wding clinics and hospitals.
“Today, the challenge is not local or community transmission, but whether we are following all the precautionary and containment measures. There is no community transmission in the country yet, but we need to remain aware and alert,” he said.

Joke...No travel history and no community spreading...that is contradictory isn't it? dont lie here please ...the deaths and rise in cases everyday tells the sorry state of affairs....the cases are rising even under lock- down...Height of faking
Go nment giving less number world should not believe this go nment
Why to fool and confuse people? Then how they will belive and obey gt instructions?
When Feku and his stooges still want to pretend to be asleep, it's very hard to wake them up. This mindset of denial also expns why India has wasted precious two months to prepare for the coronavir s.
Live in fools paradise.. This gt is fooling the people. First Modi said in 21 days I'll flatten the curve by lockdown. Nothing happened. Now extending the lockdown by 15 more days.. And this will continue indefinitely for an year.. People be prepared.. Don't be fooled by this fool. At the end of this, mire people die if starvation than coronavir s did.
Make a search in google for most intelligent prime minister of the world and most stupidest prime minister of the world. It will give you the answer.
U guys are fools if u dont believe that community transmission hasnt started yet . It started 2 weeks ago u fools when the lockdown was announced , live in a fools paradise foreover .
Brushing under the carpet? The facts are out there. Country has entered in community transmission zone. Need to go for 100% lock down and need to test at the least 2 million people a day. We are short of testing kits, but still meed to prioritsise testing and to reach rhe objective of 2million testing per say within a week or 10daya.
Gt is filled with uneducated monkeys
monkeys like you only ved them to power.
Gt is trying to keep uneducated people calm. That’s why even state gts are not declaring community transmission.
Many people who are testing positive have no travel history abroad or came in direct contact with a covid person. This means their Source of Infection cannot be detected.. Still go nment is saying we haven't reached stage 3. Are they in denial mode?
Why does everybody lie in this go nment ?

Gt is lying to our face. The situation is much worse.Trump gt too denied spread at begng
Authorities are trying to keep people calm. Most educated People who follow news everyday are aware that community transmission started atleast 2 weeks ago but are kee quiet because uneducated people will wreak havoc and cause trouble.
Modiji has vast experience in covering up his through lies
COVID-19 swee India. Prepare for worst. No point blaming current Go nment..
Narrenderrr Modi is biggest Bad Luck in India.....Narrenderrr must be sent to Jail for endangering Human Life
It is fine that go nment wants to hide the information of community transmission to avoid further chaos but then it should do much more to stop the spread.

A professor from PGI Chandigarh, has given an unoffi al report to Punjab PM. He said the peak of infection will be reached in September. 57 percent of Indians will be affected.
