A WHO official praised the Modi government, saying that a lockdown like the one in India would open soon.
World Health Organization (WHO) official Dr David Nabaro said the number of coronavirus cases in India was low because the government had taken steps to prevent it. Speaking to leading media, he said the disease would be at its peak in July before it was brought under control.
He said more cases would come once the lockdown was lifted but people should not panic. There will be more cases in the coming months but there will be stability.
He said that due to the lockdown, the spread of Kovid-19 has stopped spreading. But it has also spread to some urban areas, including Maharashtra, Gujarat, Tamil Nadu and Delhi. But with immediate action, India has not allowed it to spread. Where there is such a dense population it is very difficult to control. He said that the number of cases in India at present is very low in terms of population.
Dr. Nabarro says that many elderly people have died due to this disease but this figure is also very low in India. Notably, 56,000 cases have been reported in India so far, in which 1,850 people have died.
