  • The Lancet has criticized India’s tackling of the coronavirus outbreak saying that the country has put “a too positive spin” on the situation of the virus.
  • The editorial, published in the journal Lancet, also expressed its concern over the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) “straying from scientific evidence” approach in order to alleviate fears.
  • The editorial, however, appreciated India for its lockdown measures that were put in place in March this year.
