Coronavirus infections have not reached community level: Harsh Vardhan

Union Health Minister Harsh Vardhan on Friday said coronavirus infections have not reached the "community level" and asserted the government is trying to use "good information" in the best manner to deal with the situation. "We are in touch with everything going on the research front," he said.

The number of coronavirus cases has crossed 190 in India and at least four people have died due to the infection. The minister told Lok Sabha that there is a well-defined protocol and scientific advice on who needs to be tested for the coronavirus infection.
