SGPGI senior virologist and former professor T N Dholay has said that due to monsoon due to moisture in the atmosphere, the spread of virus is increasing. He said, “This growth will continue and we can get more than 1,000 cases daily by the end of August. He also said that the rate of broadcast of Corona will increase in October. “
Experts cite three main reasons behind the rise of corona infection – first is the rainy season, second is the negligence of the security protocol and third is the delay in contact trace.
However, Chief Medical Officer (CMO) doctor Rajendra Prasad Singh has denied laxity in contact tracing. “More cases are being detected as we have increased our testing capacity to 5,000 per day which is double that of July,” he said.
Prof. Virendra Atam, in-charge of King George Medical Unit, Head of Medicine and Kovid Unit, said, “I see people in the crowded markets of the city careless and without masks about social distancing. Hand hygiene is also being neglected, which is increasing the spread of the virus. “
