Local transmission of COVID-19 has been seen in Nagpur, some reports are claiming. As per news agency ANI, sources have confirmed that local transmission of coronavirus on a limited scale has been seen in pockets of Nagpur. 

The sources added that this cannot yet be classified as community transmission as that would mean a bigger area of spread of coronavirus.
