The WHO urged countries to test more people to curb the pandemic, but so far India has not yet extended test.

Indian government had said they would expand testing of coronavirus, because most of the countries affected do, despite criticism that the limited testing could leave COVID 19 cases are not detected in the two most populous countries in the world.

Organization World Health Organization (WHO) urged countries to test the widest possible to curb the pandemic, but India has only been tested people who had traveled from countries affected or come in contact with a confirmed case and symptoms after a two-week quarantine.

on Tuesday, he added to the health workers who care for patients with symptoms of severe respiratory disease.

India is doing just about 90 test days, although it has a capacity for 8,000. So far, 11,500 people have been tested, according to The Associated Press.

Officials say the WHO guidance does not apply in India because of the spread of the disease has been less severe than elsewhere.

Bharghava Balaram, who led the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR), the top body of medical research in the country, said the guidance is “premature” to India, where community transmission has not been detected.

“It is therefore, create more fear, more paranoia and hype,” he said.

Last week, a British citizen who approached the public hospital in New Delhi for coronavirus test told he was not eligible under the Indian test criteria and were turned away.

woman, who requested anonymity for fear of the consequences of his master’s business, he told the hospital staff that he may have had contact with the infected person in the hospitality sector jobs, but can not be sure.

After trying and failing to be tested for the second time, he left India t week to France, where her family lives and where the President Emmanuel Macron has announced extreme measures to curb coronavirus.

Indian government has justified their restrictions as a way to keep the flood of people from demanding tests that will hurt the government needed to combat other diseases such as tuberculosis, malnutrition and HIV / AIDS.

ICMR said there was no need to expand the test. However, authorities said they were preparing for the deployment of the infrastructure community to strengthen their laboratory testing. India has 52 testing centers coronavirus.

As a result of the narrow testing criteria, the sick with potential exposure to coronavirus is being sent home, and some experts fear that the burden of India’s case can be much higher than government statistics show.

Bharghava, ICMR chief, said the virus infection in India can still be traced back to people who are traveling to the state of the affected local and testing protocols will be revised if community transmission is detected.

Coronavirus cases in India rose to 151 on Wednesday, a day after a third person, a man 64 years old, died in the western state of Maharashtra.

A total of 276 Indians have been tested positive for coronavirus abroad for the time being, an Indian government minister said on Wednesday.

majority, 255, were tested positive in Iran, with others in the United Arab Emirates, Italy, Kuwait, Sri Lanka, Rwanda and Hong Kong, V Muraleedharan, minister of state for external affairs, said in Par. Liament

South Asian country has closed most schools and entertainment facilities, including a cinema

Authorities said most infections have been “imported” -. Associated with traveling abroad or direct contact with someone who caught the disease abroad.

India has suspended all travelers entering and would bar non-Indian passengers on flights from the European Union, the European Free Trade Association, Turkey and the United Kingdom on Wednesday.

Tourists who come from or transit through the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Oman and Kuwait are required to undergo a 14-day quarantine when they arrive in India, the government announced on Monday.

immigrants from China, Italy, Iran, South Korea, France, Spain and Germany are already subject to the same restrictions, while the majority of border points with neighboring Bangladesh and Myanmar has closed.

But the concern is not detected communal deployment is growing.

“Given the pattern of disease elsewhere, and given our low level of testing, then I think that community transmission occurring,” said Dr. GagÄÑDËÉP Kang, director of the Translational Health Science and Technology Institute.

The WHO said that, while insulating themselves initiated by people with mild symptoms remain the most important human intervention, testing of all suspected cases, contact the symptoms of probable cases and confirmed, it will still be required.

“We need to be directed to respond to the situation that developed with the aim to stop transmission of COVID-19 in early to minimize the impact. … we must act now,” said Dr Poonam Khetrapal Singh, WHO director for the region ,

More than 400 million of India’s 1.3 billion people live in cities crowded, many do not have regular access to clean water, a condition that can allow the disease to spread rapidly.

“Community spreads very possible. But the only way to know for sure is through more extensive testing,” said Dr. Anant Bhan, a global health researcher in Bhopal, India.

virus causes only mild or moderate symptoms, such as fever and cough, for most people, but severe disease more likely in the elderly and people with existing health problems.

India has a lower proportion of seniors than other countries, but the limited health facilities and are already struggling to accommodate the large number of patients with other diseases.

“This, together with high population density, it can be a great challenge to us,” Kurian Oommen public health researcher told the Associated Press.

India has been reluctant to expand testing, do not want to trigger panic and overwhelm hospitals, but also because of the cost. While the tests are free for patients, their government costs about 5,000 rupees ($ 67) each

in the public health system that is already stretched and lack of funds, the money spent on the leaves coronavirus less for other public health problems. India spends only 3.7 percent of the total health budget.

The coronavirus can also be spread in India because health officials have struggled to maintain quarantine, with people fleeing from isolation wards, complained of dirty conditions.

In Maharashtra, five people, one of whom had tested negative and the rest were awaiting the results of tests, walked out of the isolation room last Saturday.

India has implemented an epidemic of the 19th century law which empowers public officials to enforce more stringent containment measures and impose penalties and punishment for the escape.

Lav Agarwal, a health ministry official, said authorities “often do not get enough support from the people”.

Similarly, in neighboring Sri Lanka, the government has ordered about 170 passengers who avoid screening service after returning from affected countries to report to the police or face financial penalties and possible imprisonment.

Aditya Bhatnagar, a university stud Indian ent studying in Spain, described the unsanitary conditions in the isolation room where he and 50 other passengers on the flight from Barcelona has been kept since landing in New Delhi on Monday ,

He says the rooms, each of which holds about eight people, did not have basic health like clean sheets and bathroom. He told the AP that the group, waiting for test results COVID their 19th, are not provided with a mask or sterile.

“I do not think these measures will be sufficient to contain the pandemic,” Bhatnagar, chief ICMR, said, adding that some passengers have chosen to move away from the ward and into a private hotel, paid 4,000 rupees ($ 55 ) per night for self-isolate for at least 14 days.
