Understanding Community Transmission of COVID-19

So far the 800 odd random samples tested by ICMR for COVID-19 have come out negative. More test results will come today.

For those who are unaware, COVID-19 can spread in 3 ways:

1) Actual Travel to one of the affected countries and local transmission from someone infected when there
2) Local Transmission in India - Infection through contact or droplets of someone who has travelled to affected countries
3) Community Transmission in India - Infection by being present in the same room or via air transmission from the infected person.

Per ICMR results so far, we are yet to see evidence of community transmission in India.

In addition, if one looks at the attached graphic shared by multiple members in circles, one can see that the biggest COVID19 outbreaks have been within the 5-11°C temp, 47-79% humidity band (yellow band, with black circles representing countries with significant community transmission). We are yet to see examples of countries in red zone with community transmissions.

Additional ICMR test results of random samples to be announced today will help in understanding if there is any evidence of community transmission in India.

We must maintain high levels of hygiene and sanitation, prepare and take necessary precautions but not panic.

Be safe and healthy everyone! more

Reaching to any collusion at this stage would be too early as our nation is just passing through stage two of the pandemic. Looking to the history of the worst affected nations, we need to be very careful and cautious while passing through stages three to five when the chaces for spreading the disease in rocket speed are very very high, which is making our government worried forcing them to declare different kinds of precautions with appeals to people for strict adherence.
As per reports coming in, its a matter of great concern that some of our so called educated people holding respectable position in the society have acted in most irresponsible manner by showing complete disrespect to the instructions and guidelines of the respective authorities exposing the entire nation into danger. more  
A Team of 150 Train travelled fr Del to Hyd etc. 11 are Positive.. Rest to be found and Checked . It's a Religious Summit BUT TV DID NOT NOTIFY . more  
Excellent info. Hope the Govt is being honest in picking samples more  
We should commend our doctors, health and other officials/police/security agencies at a large number of other locations for their work in trying to contain the spread of virus. Hats off to them more
