COVID community spread in Bengal started early April, biweekly lockdown of no help: Virologist

The Bengal government has largely failed to address the COVID-19 crisis, and its recent decision to impose complete lockdown twice a week till August will be of no help in stemming the community spread in the state, noted virologist Dr Amitabha Nandy said on Tuesday. His assertions, however, were rebuffed by senior TMC leader and Rajya Sabha MP Santanu Sen, who claimed that the "unplanned approach" of the Centre towards the pandemic was to blame for the spike in coronavirus cases across the nation. According to Dr Nandy, community transmission of COVID-19 had started in Bengal way back in early-April and matters have only gotten worse primarily due to the "bizarre attitude" of the implementing agencies and the citizens.
