- After getting the first infected in Indore, the number of patients has increased by 540% since Sunday.
- Risk of corona stage 3 infection due to increase in number of patients despite not finding source of disease.
27 states in the country are affected by Coronavirus infection. Madhya Pradesh is at number ten in this. But, talking about cities, Being Corona free till March 24, Indore has come at number eight in the list of most infected cities in the country in the last five days. The country’s first patient appeared in Kerala on 30 January. Patients started arriving in Maharashtra and elsewhere in the first and second week of March. The rate of increase in patients in Indore which was 380% till Sunday has now increased to 540%.
The reason for this increasing number of infected in Indore is believed to be not following the lockdown. Hundreds of citizens of the city had gathered at the historic Rajbada in the evening on the day of public curfew. Patients from Kerala, Maharashtra, Delhi to all other major infected places came to know that they were infected when they came from abroad or came in contact with a foreign person. The primary source of infection was found at these places. However, so far the history of any infected going abroad or coming in contact with them has not been identified in Indore. It shows community transmission of the disease i.e. stage-3 infection of corona.
Administration wakes up when conditions worsen
The Indore administration has been investigating all the people, their neighbors, who met positive patients since Monday. These people are being kept in the Quarantine House. People from Ranipura, Nayapura, Chandan Nagar, Khajrana areas are being kept here.
