New Delhi: AIIMS director Dr Randeep Guleria on Monday said that there is not “much evidence” to confirm whether there is any community transmission of coronavirus at the national level.
“There is not much evidence that there is community transmission happening at the national level. But there are hotspots, even in cities where there is a spike of cases and it very likely that local community transmission in those areas is happening,” he said at a press conference.
“Certain areas have hit their peak. Delhi seems to have done so because the cases have declined significantly. Certain areas have yet to reach the peak. Cases are increasing in certain states. They will reach the peak a little later,” he added.
India has so far registered more than 11 lakh coronavirus cases and over 27,000 deaths due to the highly-contagious disease.
