Community transmission of coronavirus seen in many States
At least in some States there is community transmission of coronavirus, going by the statements of the concerned authorities. But the Centre refuses to take this, and the political debate goes on! After all, what is community transmission?

NEW DELHI, June 29: Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia has repeatedly said that there is community transmission of coronavirus infection in Delhi. Health Minister Satyendar Jain has corroborated that: "There is community transmission." The source of infection is unknown in most of the thousands reporting sick in a day in the national Capital, he said. There were 3,460 new cases in Delhi on Sunday and for half the cases the source is not known.

However, Union Home Minister Amit Shah has asserted, it is not there in Delhi. "There is no need to worry," he said.

Community transmission is said to be there when a substantial number of patients do not have an inkling of the source of their infection. "We can consider that we are in the community transmission stage only when there are about 20 to 30 per cent cases with no clue on how they got the virus," the Health Ministry said in a statement.

It was reported that the ICMR admiited, "it is happening locally."

In Guwahati, Assam Health Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma said he feared it is prevalent in the State Capital. A 14-day lockdown has been ordered in Guwahati from midnight Sunday and a 12-hour curfew in the whole State as the coronavirus cases are shooting up.

In Goa, Chief Minister Pramod Sawant has admitted, "community transmission has occurred." In April, Goa was declared coronavirus- free and till May end there was not a single casualty. Today the cases are mounting. There are 1,128 cases and two deaths reported till today in such a short period.
