Randeep Guleria AIIMS

New Delhi, April 7 All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) Director Randeep Guleria said that several places in country have turned into the hotspot of the virus as community transfer has started in those places but still the situation in India is much better as compared to the world.

Gulerai said: “In India situation is still better when we compare the virus outbreak across the globe. However, some places have become the hotspot which is matter of concern but if we can contain the community transmission then we can maintain the stage two in the country.”

The stage two of the coronavirus is when the infection is limited to those who have come from abroad and their near ones. In stage three, this infection starts spreading in people who are not in direct contact with the infected person.

Guleria said the condition in India is between stage two and three. He said: “It can only be contained by following the lockdown properly. People should stay at home so that the chain of coronavirus spread can be broken.”
