In the wake of India fighting hard the pandemic Covid-19, a new revelation came from Dr. Girighar Gyani who was appointed as the convenor of a task force on the Covid-19 hospitals.

"Yes, we are calling it Stage 3. Officially we may not call it - but it is the beginning of Stage 3," he said.

Dr. Gyani, who's the founder of the Association of Healthcare Providers has also participated in the video conference of healthcare professionals with Prime Minister Narendra Modi on 24 March.

Stage 3 in the pandemic talk about community transmission. This is cited as the critical stage in this outbreak where the virus spreads very rapidly and it turns out to be very difficult to find out the original transmission source.  

We are running short of time in preparing COVID-19 hospitals as the outbreak in India can happen any day in the coming weeks. We do not have enough trained medical staff and COVID-19 hospitals yet," Dr. Gyani added.
