NEW DELHI: About 0.73% of the population appears to be exposed to COVID-19 infection, according to the results of the first part of the sero-survey conducted by the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) in 83 districts.

The low prevalence made the government state that there was no community transmission in India, although incidence may be higher in containment zones or hotspots. ICMR Director General, Dr Balram Bhargava said, “…..India is such a large country and the prevalence is so low. In urban and containment areas, it may be slightly higher. But India is definitely not in community transmission.” (ET Healthworld – TNN, June 12, 2020)
