Covid-19: Union Health Minister says 'India not in community transmission stage'
The Union Health Minister, Harsh Vardhan on July 10 stated that recovery rate among COVID-19 patients stands at about 63% and mortality rate is just 2.72% in the country right now. “Around 2.7 lakh tests are being done daily. Despite being such a large country, we've not reached the community transmission stage of COVID-19. Though there are some small pockets where there could be slightly higher transmission locally,” Health Minister added. “We are not concerned about the number of cases. We are ramping up testing so that maximum cases can be detected and treated,” Health Minister said.
