Don't worry India might touch 1 Lac cases per day soon. We are not very far from 1 lac cases per day.
Also we will be no 2 in few days and looking to touch the moon no 1 position
Modiji is busy in feeding Peacocks Pigeons Sparrows Ants and other birds by wearing designer dresses. If you feed them you get punya. The world will remember him as the bext Nero who was feeding birds when people were dying of Corona.
When the entire world was constructing hospitals we were constructing temples and statues. When the entire world is blaming China we are saying it is an Act Of God. i was thinking only Modi is afraid of uttering word China but now i know the entire Cabinet is afraid.
Really hope the COVID situation improves soon! Sad to see the economy take such a large hit!
When Rome was burning Nero was Fiddling
when India was dying of Corona Modi was feeding Peacocks in designer dresses.
It seems that the prediction of MIT Scientists of Daily new 2,87,000 cases by March 2021 is going to be true if people don't take enough precautions. People should take these Scientists seriously. Afterall they are scientists from one of the best University in the world. They won't publish some vague report without proper mathamatical backing..
Mr. Modi Ji is the most intelligent person on the planet coz he was able to befool citizens of a country whose citizens are the most intelligent people on the earth.
Big worrisome figures.
No rules followed by the common people
The situation is horrific and terrible, yet undaunted, the Modi govt., is still in a self-congratulatory mode of the purportedly better management of the pandemic situation espousing flawed narratives and deeply flawed one-sided statistics to buttress its claim that things are under control.
Cases are rising because people have become complacent
Nor there is social dostancing nor people wearing mask and there is no body to force them to wear mask
PM is feeding peacocks so everything will be ok.
BY THE TIME VACCINE HIT THE MARKET, MILD COVID19 INFECTION MAY DEVELOP ANTIBODIES IN EACH INDIVIDUAL ALL OVER INDIA. THEN VACCINE S WILL BE USELESS.
deaths are increasing as well as the cases as covid has hit community spread
Current India numbers are worst in world as most of the countries cases have significantly reduced.
Still many chaddis believe vaccine will come by the year end.
People need to follow rules for their own safety otherwise everyone will suffer
Modi modi modi - we want to see peacock dance
It will soon reach one lakh cases per day by middle of next month
It seems we have to live with the virus in future also as nothing progress on vaccine seen

Almost all other countries in world have shown sign of decline in covid numbers except India. We are growing as if there is no tomorrow. We are nearing to beat Brazil.
