Concerns are growing about what happens if the public transmission takes off in crowded area of ​​the nation’s second most-populous in the world.

By, and

NEW DELHI – Over the weekend in Lucknow, one of the major Indian cities, young people packed into the pub. Although the Indian government scrambling to lock things up, some in the arena bar taking a very serious coronavirus.

“I’m not afraid. I eat, party, sleep, ” said Akshay Gupta, an accountant who bar hopping on a Saturday night. “Scaring is overhyped.”

India has reported about 125 cases of coronavirus, and it was a bit of a mystery how the nation’s second most-populous in the world, with 1.3 billion people, remain relatively unscathed while the number of cases exploded to the east and the west. Which has spawned a sense of almost disbelief about the crisis in some circles.

Doctors say it is good that there are more cases in India that have not been detected, due to difficulties getting tested, or that India has managed so far to escape the worst, probably due to rapid and rigorous efforts from the beginning.

in Kerala, in the south, believed to be the first person infected here. They returned from Italy at the end of February, and in a few days, the medical team to spread to all the places they have visited, including banks, restaurants and churches and quickly quarantined nearly everyone they come in contact with -. Nearly 1,000 people

India is also one of the first countries to essentially shut down its borders, canceling visas and deny entry to all but a few select foreigners. Some states, such as Kerala, began to beef up the internal borders, taking the temperature of a passenger in the car and screening people on the train.

However, the containment measures have been perfect and fear has begun to spread.

In the state of Maharashtra, which has recorded many cases in India, at least 15 people escaped from two hospitals, according to Indian officials and news outlets. Most of the patients have been found and returned to the quarantine. Dr Devendra Paturkar, a medical officer in the city of Nagpur, said four patients fled the hospital there since tested negative for coronavirus.

So far, most if not all cases of coronavirus Indian traveler has come from – an Italian tour group visiting Rajasthan alone deploy many cases. But public health experts fear what will happen if community transmission began to take off, especially in urban areas packed with poor sanitation and where so many people live face to face.

“The challenge of a great country like India with a population density is that some people will always slip net, wherever you put it, ” said Dipanjan Roy, an epidemiologist India who has worked for the Center for Disease Control and Prevention and the World Health Organization.

He also worried about the so-called “let’s wait until tomorrow” attitude. Indian health officials had to put the hard quarantine applies in February, he said.

“That cost them a month, ” said Dr. Roy.

But he and other doctors say India offer certain advantages, including a decent track record of containing the flu epidemic and the fact that India is one of the world’s largest manufacturers of generic drugs.

Antibiotics are often shared here without prescription, worried that some medical professionals. But in this situation, experts say it might help: Many people died of coronavirus give up on secondary infection, and some of them can be treated with antibiotics

Demographics also works to the advantage of India .. people here far younger than in countries with the most severe, and young people have a much better chance to overcome the virus. Another possible factor is that Indian weather is warm – and that is to get really hot -. although it has not been clinically proven to have a major influence

State authority throughout India now booked the same type of restriction as in the countries most severely. Schools shut down. So the pool, a gym, athletic arenas, malls and movie theaters. Marriage and other public gatherings are banned – although people continue to do so

On Tuesday, officials of the Taj Mahal, one of the world’s premier tourist destination

In many places it .. life as usual. In New Delhi, capitalismtal, and other major cities such as Lucknow, the restaurant may be a little more quiet, but many people are still going out. There is still a traffic jam, even though the traffic was noticeably lighter Monday in Mumbai and commuter trains are mostly empty. online shopping services such as Amazon and digital grocery store BigBasket see orders surge as buyers rushed to stock up on food and supplies without leaving their homes.

Dr. Henk Bekedam, the World Health Organization representative in India, said cases of coronavirus in the country all “tracked” and that there is no evidence yet the public transmission or the number of patients no higher official.

She said India has so far managed to keep the lower case by responding quickly and aggressively to coronavirus, and urged people to practice social distance.

“I have been quite impressed with India,” said Dr Bekedam. “From the beginning they have taken very seriously.”

The government has been trying to get ahead of the rumor -, is “Say No to Panic, Say Yes for Prevention.” But some supporters of Mr. Modi and even officials in his Bharatiya Janata Party, or BJP, which confuses people.

During the weekend, the famous Hindu nationalist groups were held, said that urine has medicinal properties and drink that can ward coronavirus. has pronounced the same, leaving many people wondering if it could be true. Other party leaders continue to hold large rallies, with people flocking in.

In India ,. Many Indians believe you can catch from eating chicken coronavirus. Wholesale chicken prices have fallen more than 50 percent because of misinformation has been circulating on social media that eating chicken or other meat can spread coronavirus. Various government agencies have issued a statement to convince people there is no relationship between coronavirus and chicken, but it did not help.

The test also has been a problem. Until last week, it was hard to get tested in India for coronavirus unless the patient shows symptoms and have traveled abroad or close to someone who has. While South Korea has tested more than 4,800 people per million and Italy more than 1,000, India has tested approximately 5 per million.

But government scientists insist that India has enhanced testing kits it from 20,000 in January to now about one million, and that the tests are more widely available and can be processed within a few days on a network of more than 50 national laboratories.

However, one after trying to get a patient tested.

After Dr. Shinu Syamalan, a general medical practitioner, called a patient who has a fever and has been returned from the Middle East to the government’s health department, the owner of a private clinic where Dr. Syamalan worked fired him.

“the owner said people would stop coming to my clinic if they knew the patient coronavirus here. She was very rude to me, “said Dr. Syamalan.

The state health department refused to take the case seriously, he said, and patients walk away untested.

Shalini Venugopal and Hari Kumar contributed reporting from New Delhi, and Vindu Goel from Mumbai.
