No decline in positive cases in Bhubaneswar before Dussehra this year.

Bhubaneswar:30/9/20: As COVID-19 cases surge continues unabated, it seems like there will be no decline in positive cases in Bhubaneswar before Dussehra this year.

According to an analysis by the RMRC, the COVID situation will continue till the one-fourth population in Bhubaneswar gets infected with the deadly virus.

“Novel coronavirus is a mysterious virus. It is very hard to make any assumption about the virus due to its many mutations. Therefore, the spread of infection due to Coronavirus can only be brought under control if antibody will be developed in a number of people,” said Bhubaneswar RMRC Director Dr Sanghamitra Pati.

As per serological surveillance conducted in August, only 5.15 percent of people have developed antibodies for COVID-19 in Bhubaneswar, which shows a very low prevalence. In July, it was only 1.2%.

The virus could be controlled in the city if around 25% to 30% people develop antibodies, she said.
