There has been some decline in the cases of coronavirus in the country since last month. This decline is despite the easing of travel restrictions and other works starting to return to normal. More interestingly, the scientific committee appointed by the government which is observing the growth trend of Coronavirus in India, said that the disease was at its highest level last month. The committee did not give information about why the decline in corona cases is coming. According to a report by the Indian Express, two members of the committee have received some reactions to this.
Reduced ability of people to infect others
According to the report, committee member Professor Manindra Agarwal said that some case studies have been done in Andhra Pradesh and Tamil Nadu region. The journal indicated that 70 per cent of the people infected with COVID-19 are no longer passing the infection on to other people. The virus was spread through a small number of people, also known as super spreaders. Aggarwal said that these people are usually infected in the initial stages of the outbreak and it is likely that people were infected earlier and have now become immune. There are very few people who will infect others with the virus. Aggarwal said that this could be a possible reason behind the falling cases of India’s coronavirus.
Explain that super spreaders can infect large numbers of people. Aggarwal said that super spreaders interact with a lot of people in a day, so the chances of transmission are less. When they do not have the ability to spread the infection, the new number of positive cases decreases.
People fell apart
Another member of the committee, Professor Gagandeep Kang, an expert on infectious diseases and a professor at the Christian Medical College, Vellore, said that with the imposition of the restrictions, people are only interacting with those who are close to them. Because there is not much communication with unknown people (for example, in trains and buses), the transmission is in small groups.
Kang further said that many things are still not clear and more data is needed to explain the reason. He said that it was experienced some time ago in European countries.
