New Delhi, July 20
The Centre wants to simply accept that group unfold of the coronavirus is going on within the nation and comply with Delhi’s lead in containing the virus by ramping-up testing “on a large scale”, senior AAP chief Sanjay Singh mentioned on Monday.
The Rajya Sabha MP mentioned persons are not realising that the group unfold is underway and therefore contracting the virus.
“(If) you are not able to find information on the source of the infection so that is community spread,” he mentioned at a press briefing.
“The Centre needs to accept that community spread is taking place and ramp-up testing on a large scale and more testing kits must be made available. They must replicate what the Delhi government did,” Singh mentioned.
Hitting again at Singh, Delhi BJP General-Secretary Rajesh Bhatia mentioned that AAP is “running away” from its obligations in Delhi.
“First a person died in waterlogging within the metropolis on Sunday. When we questioned them, they mentioned the Kejriwal authorities was busy dealing with coronavirus, so it couldn’t take note of desilting of drains.
“Now, they are saying there is community spread, if it is so what were they doing to stop it. The thing is COVID situation had gone out of Delhi government’s hands and was brought under control by Union Home Minister Amit Shah,” Bhatia mentioned.
Singh additionally mentioned admitting that there’s a group unfold of the virus would require testing to be accomplished on a big scale.
“In terms of testing if you compare, India is far behind. In the US, 1,47,000 tests are conducted per million while in Russia over 1 lakh tests are done per million,” he mentioned.
“Meanwhile in India, just 9,000-10,000 tests per million are being conducted. It means enough tests are not being conducted and the country is being run on the formula of ‘no testing-no cases and no FIR-no crime’. Two states of UP and Bihar are the biggest examples in this respect where testing is being carried out just for namesake,” he mentioned. PTI
