The Maharashtra Health Minister Rajesh Tope on Thursday said, “I think there is no community spread of coronavirus in the state.”
Speaking on the COVID-19 update, Minister Tope said, “The state government has been able to trace almost every COVID-19 patient and his or her source of infection. Hence, in my opinion, there is no community spread in the state.”
“The data shows that most of the COVID-19 positive patients are those who were earlier placed under institutional quarantine, home quarantine, or had some contact history. Therefore, there has been no community spread in Maharashtra so far,” he added.
