Sudip Barman told, “I have placed some demands to chief minister for the sake of State’s welfare. The COVID-19 positive cases are massively increasing. The cases which were only one till April 6 and on May 26 it was only 232. But now in June month it has crossed 800.”
“Around 603 coronavirus cases are still active. Everyday, there are huge numbers of cases reported. The reason behind such a massive outbreak is suspected as community transmission, because the Government has failed to complete everyone’s tests. The asymptomatic patients are spreading the cases as carrier as the Government has not done any test to maximum returnees. Secondly, they should not be sent to Home Quarantine. Till the tests’ results come, they should be kept in institutional quarantine,” said Sudip Roy Barman.
The CPI-M state secretary Gautam Das also alleged that community transmission has started in Tripura.
