Does Delhi have Covid community spread? State health minister comments

Delhi Health Minister Satyendar Jain spoke on Covid-19 situation in the city-state. Jain reiterated that there is community spread in Delhi. He said that the large number of cases point to community level spread. Jain, however, added that only ICMR or Centre can comment on this. "People in such large numbers are getting infected in Delhi, other states. It should have been admitted that there is community spread. But this is something on which only ICMR or Centre can comment. I can tell you that there is a spread inside the community. This is a technical term, scientists will be able to tell this better," the state health minister said.
