The Indian Council for Medical Research (ICMR) on Sunday said there is no evidence as of now that Coronavirus was airborne. "We need to understand that in science whoever does experiments, there will be different opinions, but we need to take a balanced, evidence-based approach,” an ICMR official said.
"For example, if it was an air-borne infection, then in a family whoever has a contact they all should come positive because they are living in the same surroundings as the patient and the family is breathing the same air. When someone is admitted in the hospital, other patients would have got exposure (if it was airborne) but that is not the case,” the official said.
