Updated: On 15 June morning, a news went viral stating that a study by the Indian Council of Medical Research suggests that the peak stage of COVID-19 in India could arrive around mid-November.

Via an official Twitter handle, ICMR clarified that it had not put out such a report:

"The news reports attributing this study to ICMR are misleading. This refers to a non peer reviewed modelling, not carried out by ICMR and does not reflect the official position of ICMR."

A PTI report referred to a study conducted by researchers from an Operations Research Group constituted by ICMR, saying the "the peak stage of COVID-19 pandemic in India has been delayed by the eight-week lockdown along with strengthened public health measures and it may now arrive around mid-November during which there could be a paucity of isolation and ICU beds, and ventilators."
