I don't understand why this didn't happen 6+ months ago.

Just a friendly reminder that zero percent of patients given fluvoxamine at symptom onset have progressed to Severe Form Covid-19.  As to why, that is unclear.

Mister Buttons: I don't understand why this didn't happen 6+ months ago.


Because the variants that existed 6 months ago weren't as severe on people under 70.

India's life expectancy is 69y.

So there weren't that many cases that needed hospitalization, back then.

6 months ago the virus required close contact or whatever secretion it was that made 1/10 carriers far more likely to transmit the disease.  It doesn't need to rely on those superspreaders anymore.

"India saw a downward trend in infections starting at the end of 2020 but the numbers began rising again in mid-February.
Recent regional elections and festivals including the mammoth month-long Kumbh Mela are expected to accelerate the infection rate further, with virologist Shahid Jamil calling them super-spreader events."

You're right, that should be 31.8 million cases.

You know why? Because india isnt testing and the tests they do are shiat. Like 50% false negative shiat. And also several indian states/cities violate WHO guidelines on covid and if someone dies of covid, most of the time they ''didnt die of covid but of something else''.

Basically covid deniers run india.

Chances are, india is number one in dead from covid.

You would think that something that causes people to want to wash their hands less often would have the opposite effect.

But then again, since they're already infected, I guess it wouldn't make much difference.

A year ago I predicted India was going to be a shiat-show.  Given its caste system, covid is going to be used as a way to deal with the untouchables once and for all.  Then they'll make a big show of crying about the tragedy.

We have more people medicated with life extending drugs and infected with the Republicanism germ that the CDC is working on.

I sure do hope that those of us that warned about the repercussions on the other side of this event are wrong but it's not looking good.

Who would have thought that India had so many infected with Republicanism. Live and learn I guess.

Hopefully they can curry some flavor from the cows.

On track to have 1.6 million cases per day if it increases the same rate over the next month.

Doesn't seem imaginable, but the rate isn't slowing down at all yet. This could be by far the biggest disaster of the entire Covid epidemic.

And it's not limited to India.  Yesterday, I was reading that Hungary (and probably most of Eastern Europe) has made little or no effort to extend COVID testing or vaccination to ethnic minorities, especially Jewish and Romani communities.

No, it didn't.  I just wish it wasn't so expected.  The level of suffering is going to be unimaginable.

I bet two reasons: degrees of separation and ventilation. I would think that the degree of separation from one guy in Mumbai to another guy on the other side of Mumbai is >> that a Californian to guy in New York. Not even counting the even more insular areas. We saw something similar with small towns in the US.

Also, people underestimated ventilation. I would rather talk to a carrier, without masks, outside with a light cross breeze, than inside with masks.

plus about 100 other reasons

So a buddy of mine (bio-phd) was talking to me the other day about how bad COVID is in relative terms to the spanish flu.

By 1920 there were 675,000 dead Americans...the spanish flu was on its way out by then.

Today the US has 564,000 deaths to COVID and they have the benefit of modern medicine.

India had 17-18M deaths to spanish flu but so far have only reported 173,000 deaths.

So either they are doing really, really well. Or the shiat is going to be hitting the Ganges in a big way.

This is my suspicion, too. Doesn't mean it's OK for US to fark it up so badly, but the numbers from some other countries are not believable. Some countries did better than us from the beginning (like South Korea and Thailand until recently, apparently New Zealand is still doing good), but the rest are varying degrees of mostly terrible.

Remember when the religious nuts there were recommending drinking cow piss to protect yourself from COVID. India and this country have a lot more in common than we think.
