Head of epidemiology and communicable diseases at Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) Dr Raman R Gangakhedkar on Monday said said 80 out of 100 infected people do not show any symptoms.

The Union health ministry has issued guidelines to be followed on detection of suspect or confirmed COVID-19 cases in non-coronavirus health facilities and said hospitals located in proximity or catering to COVID-19 containment zones should treat all patients as suspect cases until proven otherwise.
