Fear of community spread as India sees highest single-day spike of 34,884 corona cases

NEW DELHI, July 19: India is already the third worst-hit country after the US and Brazil in the number of coronavirus infections. While the cases have reached 10,38,716, the count of deaths so far is 26,273. The Ministry of Health said on Saturday that India witnessed the highest single-day spike of cases with 34,884 cases reported in the last 24 hours.

The widespread surge in the infection rate is exponential and has become a causative factor of community transmission. It threatens to go out of control in the rural areas of India where there is no mechanism existing to help in its prevention.

Dr VK Monga, chairman of the IMA Hospital Board of India, told reporters that the disease is spreading to the villages on a large scaie. There is a serious threat of community transmission.

Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan had said on Friday that community transmission has started in the State. He cited some places in the coastal areas of Thiruvananthapuram district like Poonthura and Pulluvila as examples.

The coastal area from Edava in the north to Pozhiyoor in the south has been declared as critical containment zone (CCZ) and will be under complete lockdown from Saturday midnight to July 28 midnight, District Collector Dr Navjot Khosa said.

The Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) said that it is ramping up testing facilities regularly. At present, 885 Government laboratories and 368 private laboratory chains are conducting covid tests in the country. As many as 1,34,33,742 samples have been tested till July 17.
