Community transmission in India? Harsh Vardhan says it’s restricted to sure districts

Union Health Minister Harsh Vardhan on Sunday admitted that India is locally transmission stage. However, it’s restricted solely to sure districts and states. The assertion has come within the backdrop of West Bengal’s Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee’s admission on Monday that the group transmission of Covid-19 has began within the state.

Vardhan’s assertion was a response to a question made throughout his weekly webinar, ‘Sunday Samvaad’ the place he interacts along with his social media viewers.

The question was “Mamta Banerjee has said there are instances of community transmission in the state. Are there other states with community transmission as well?”

To this, the minister responded, “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.”

The admission comes after months of denial. This is the primary time that the well being minister has acknowledged the group transmission.

Earlier this week, Banerjee had urged folks of West Bengal to take care of warning forward of the upcoming Durga Puja season.

“I ask everybody to follow the Covid-19 safety protocols during the festive season. There are instances of community transmission of Covid-19 and also the contagion becoming airborne,” Banerjee was quoted saying.

In July, the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare had launched a steerage doc which had inadvertently revealed that group transmission occurred in India as early as April.

The doc was later taken down from the web site of the union well being ministry.
