AIIMS director Randeep Guleria warned that the corona infection in the country will only increase further and may reach its peak in the next two-three months. Dr. Guleria also said that just testing in the fight against Corona will not work. People have to follow social distancing seriously. India has now reached number five on the list of countries most affected by Corona, beating Spain.
In the last 24 hours, 9971 new cases of corona have been reported in the country, which is the highest number of new patients in a day. During this time 287 people have also died. With this, the total figure of corona patients in the country has increased to 2,46,628. Of these, 120406 are active cases and 119293 patients have been discharged. So far, a total of 6929 people have died due to corona infection in the country.
AIIMS director Randeep Guleria said in an interaction with NDTV that the corona infection could increase further in the next two-three months, that is, August-September. In India, it is still in its early stages. However, he also said that the corona infection has not yet reached the community transmission level in India. Community transmission is possible in the hotspot areas of the corona.
Dr Randeep Guleria also criticized the Delhi government’s decision to seal the border to prevent patients from other states from coming to Delhi. AIIMS director said that it is immoral and no such patient should be stopped.
The World Health Organization (WHO) has said that the condition of corona infection in India is not yet explosive. However, he said that there is a risk of removing the lockdown. Michele Ryan, executive director of the WHO’s Health Emergency Situation Program, said that it is taking about three weeks for corona cases to double in India. Michelle Ryan also said that the impact of this scandal is different in urban and rural areas in India. The WHO stated that the pace of the spread of infection from the lockdown has been low.
