The WHO said on Friday that the number of coronavirus cases in India is doubling every three weeks but still the risk has not reduced. It is still expected to spread.
More danger in a densely populated country
Dr. Michael Ryan, executive director of the WHO's Health Disaster Program, said on Friday that cases of corona infection in India are doubling in three weeks and there is still a worry for the densely populated countries. If the virus starts to infect at the community level then it will spread very fast.
Now a large number of people are returning to work. Also, millions of workers are being voiced due to which the risk of infection has increased.
It is necessary to monitor the speed of doubling of cases
WHO's Chief Scientist Dr. Soumya Swaminathan says that the number of cases of coronavirus in India is not more than the population of 130 crores but still it is important to pay attention to the doubling rate.
Ayushman will get help from India
The WHO has praised the Ayushman Bharat scheme, saying that if implemented quickly it will help in tackling the corona. This could be an opportunity for India to step up the Ayushman Bharat scheme.
