Covid-19 growth rate in India appears to be stable in initial trends: Health Ministry

The government on Thursday said there was no hard evidence of coronavirus pandemic having reached the community transmissions stage in India and added that the rate of expansion of the disease appeared to be stabilising in the country. “While the numbers of #Covid19 cases are increasing, the rate at which they are increasing appears to be relatively stabilizing. However, this is only the initial trend,” said Lav Agarwal, Joint Secretary, Union Health & Family Welfare Ministry.
