Nearly 70 per cent people affected with coronavirus either exhibit mild or very mild symptoms of the disease and may not require admission to dedicated hospitals, the Union health ministry said today in a guidance document for management of COVID-19 cases. Senior ministry official Lav Aggarwal, however, said a recent study by the ICMR – the nodal agency for battle against COVID-19 — shows that if one patient who doesn’t follow lockdown orders or practice social distancing, can infect 406 people in 30 days.
