Amid rising number of coronavirus cases across India, Professor Giridhar Babu, an epidemiologist who is also member of the National Task Force Research group, has said that community transmission may have taken place in containment zones of metros as early as May. This inference, he has drawn, based on the results of the national sero-survey conducted by the ICMR. The survey claimed 64 lakh Indians had been exposed to Covid by May.
