Kolkata, May  6,2020:The accusation of playing down the spread of the Covid-19 virus in the state, repeatedly hurled at West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee by Opposition parties ranging from the BJP to the CPM, was today echoed by the inter-ministerial central team (IMCT) sent to the state by the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA).

While winding up their two-week visit to the state, IMCT team leader Apurva Chandra wrote to Chief Secretary Rajiva Sinha that West Bengal was having the highest Covid mortality rate in the country. “The state needs to be transparent and consistent in reporting figures and not downplay the spread of the virus,” he wrote, putting the figure of mortality rate in the state to 12.8 per cent which was “by far the highest in the country.”

India's COVID cases to peak in June-July: AIIMS director

New Delhi, May8,2020:All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) Director Dr Randeep Guleria on Thursday said India may witness the peak of COVID-19 cases in June or July. "The answer of when will be the peak of cases of COVID-19 in India depends upon modelling data. National and international both experts are analysing the data. Most of them have guessed that India will most likely see the peak in June or July," he said.

Dr Guleria added, earlier it was analysed that the peak will be in May but due to extended lockdown the peak has also been extended.

It is a dynamic process that depends upon various factors. It is a long-lasting battle. Cases will come even after the peak is passed. People's lifestyle in terms of travelling and socialising will change," he said.

The AIIMS Director also said only with time the quantum of effect of the lockdown in the country will be known. The cases are increasing with the tally on Thursday at 52,952, including 1,783 deaths according to the Union Health Ministry data. The total tally includes 35,902 active cases while 15,266 patients have recovered from COVID-19.
