Niti Aayog Member V K Paul has said that the mortality rate in coronavirus pandemic in India is not "severe" and the impact of the disease is "very very limited" going by the size of the country.

"We are very very certain that it (COVID-19) is not an outbreak that is causing severe mortality in any part of the country. We also have not heard anecdotes that intensive care units (ICUs ) are filled up in government or private hospitals like what had happened in Europe where all ICUs were full," he said while addressing a virtual session on the theme 'Covid-19: India Fights Back - Strategy and Way Forward'.
