Modi is doing everything possible to contain the spread of this evil...........................

Modi is doing everything possible to make life miserable for his people. It is for the Indian people to decide whether they want such an incompetent pm to lead. I do follow a little bit of Indian politics. It is all, religion caste, and ultranationalism. I do not see any real agenda for improving the lives of common people.

If numbers are truly 300k, I would not be concerned considering the size of the population and available basic health infrastructure. Around 25k thousand people die in India on a regular day. However, the true numbers are far more, and most likely passed one million in last December. There is a deliberate attempt to underreport both numbers infected cases as well as death numbers.

Posted in: Bodies of COVID-19 victims among those dumped in India's Ganges: gov't document See in context

Images of corpses drifting down the Ganges river, which Hindus consider holy, have shocked a nation reeling under the world's worst surge in infections.*

correction: which many stupid

It is one of the dirtiest rivers in the world (probably second most after  Citarum River, Indonesia).

What else one can expect when their "supreme leader" is so incompetent. It is a crime, no less than genocide. I am feeling sorry for the Indian peoples.

I do not know, but I just read it on the internet "India currently spends about 1% of GDP on health, among the lowest for any major economy." Is not it true?

Prof. K. Vijay Raghavan is a great scientist, including other advising committee members to the govt. They warned long before. Prof. Menon predicted what could be the severity of the problem. In the first place, somebody (the head of the govt) should have the capacity to take that advice. It is no less than a genocide.

This is the situation in Delhi. One of the leading media reports;

Posted in: India tops 200,000 dead as virus surge breaks health system See in context

@Cognac; India does not have a proper death counting mechanism. Only 90-94% (6-10 % missing) of total deaths are reported, and the cause of death is reported only for those who died in hospitals. Overall, it is 60-65%. Many states (southern ) do it better; however, for most North Indian states, it is hardly 30-40%, and the covid data shows low death % in the north Indian states, which is a clear indication of fudging and undercounting. With 6-10 % missing numbers in normal circumstances, nobody will ever know the actual number of covid deaths in India.

The actual number of deaths could be 3-5 times higher. Of course, there is fudging, and a lot is missing as many people are dying untested. The number of cases could be 30-50 times, god knows.

Posted in: India's crematoriums overwhelmed as virus tears through country See in context

It is true India is underreporting death from the beginning. The estimated death numbers are between 3.5 to 5.2 times than the reported ones. It is also true India does not have a proper death counting mechanism even in normal circumstances. Many poor people in the rural parts are dying unnoticed. The situation is really dire. The second wave is clearly mismanagement. Probably, the incompetence of Mr. Modi is adding fuel to it.

Another meaningless state of emergency. The country with enormous resources could have inoculated a substantial amount of the population by now. I am angry with these hopeless politicians.

Posted in: India records world's biggest single-day rise in coronavirus cases See in context

The US in its peak had 297K. Compare the proportion of the population. If you really want to compare India with any other country compare with entire Europe. Avg 30k death per day is normal for India. It is alarming but just do not go by the absolute number. Also, it would be interesting to see:

Number of cases in Japan(population of India/population of Japan)(no of test conducted per million in India/nos per million in Japan)

547000(1.45 billion/126million)(200000/87000)=54700011.52.3= 14.45 million (cases in India 15.50 million)

When we are entering into new waves, and they are over, nobody knows. I see the same situation as at the beginning of last year, and all experts and politicians are going around the circle. Japan is doing best if not the best, we are worst, etc etc, blah blah.

Posted in: Some remain skeptical as Japan set to roll out vaccines on Wednesday See in context

japan's COVID-19 cases are relatively low compared with other countries, standing at around 415,000 in total with over 6,900 deaths.

It would be interesting to see data from the serological surveillance study, whether the spread of the virus is really low in Japan. Until now, Is there any data that has been published?

Posted in: Tokyo reports 307 new coronavirus cases; nationwide tally 1,300 See in context

As if viruses travel only in the airplane. It is for sure there are many mutants in every country. Locking down everything is certainly not a solution and how long it can be continued. The rate at which inoculation is planned or possible, it will take years to vaccinate at least a large chunk of the population.

The more you test, the more you know the severity of the problem. It would be interesting to see if stringent testing restrictions are relaxed.

No offense to any decent Indians; I do believe the majority of them are very decent. In general, complaining about racism from Indians do not go down well. It is a part of everyday life. Indians can not differentiate between what is racist and what is not. Many of them say offensive words as being ignorant.

The place is just behind the Hongo campus of our university. Therefore, I can guarantee that it is an isolated incident; Yes, we must remain vigilant even in Tokyo. I think we should not equate crime with poverty.
