Modi's plan; depopulation.

This is his Great Leap Forward, if you will.

6,000 recorded. Looks like a lot of that was catching up on old paperwork.

Even if it was 6,148 out of a 1,393 million population, Paraguay is doing worse with 134 deaths out of 7.2 million. If that rate were scaled up to India's population it would be over 25,000 dead.

Seriously though, if you want to know how messed up the situation is over there, I was on a team call and had colleagues from India online and one of them mentioned how her uncle was in a hospital but slowly recovering and his oxygen levels were improving...until the hospital ran out of oxygen.
72 people died.

/not sure how people are not taking to the streets or asking the heads of health to resign...it's not like they didn't have time to gear up for this

In India? Most likely because the Delta variant spreads easier.

Good thing it's not spreading here and never will. Covid has been solved in America once and for all.

Because it takes so long for Bill Gates/George Soros/Jeff Bezos/Insert some other boogyman here to complete their study in the first country before unleashing it on another country for the next study.

Not sure there is only one, but a big contributor is poverty/income. Further down the food-chain limits your options. Having to work in a crowded warehouse or food processing facility and shop n crowded markets is going to produce very different outcomes than office workers that can literally work & shop from anywhere with internet. The balance of the economy toward the latter will have better outcomes.

Sorry, to clarify, I meant all countries.
Even the ones that were saying "wow...we are somehow immune to this!"

Here is a freakin link from the BBC titled Coronavirus: Are Indians more immune to Covid-19?
It didn't date well, and it's only from Nov of 2020, not from early in the game.

Not really.

Covid is the common cold with a little English on it.  Even the worst Avian flu strains are only 50% fatal.

If Gaia was sick of our shiat she'd send Don Cheadle.

A billion people live in India, and nearly ten percent of that population live in extreme poverty. Like 12 people living in a space designed for 3, outhouses, limited safe food access and struggles to find clean water-level poverty.

That's 10 million more people than Texas, New York, and California combined. If they're struggling to find safe quantities of the one thing no person can live without for more than a couple of days, hand sanitizer is way down the priority list.

China is solely to blame for this.

Regardless of the country of origin the administration in the US is the blame for how poorly the response was handled.

Maybe not. The "original" covid from china was kind of weak compared to the one that hit europe and us... and this delta variant is much worse than all of em so far.

And 6 000 dead per day from covid. Sure bro. Usually, India has 25 000 dead per day, you gonna tell me all hospitals and morgues were overwhelmed and that they needed to expand their "burning pyres" by 10 times and tell people to burn their family members in the backyard because of a mere +25% in deaths? Suuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuure​.

This.

This entire pandemic is the fault of the People's Republic of China.  They lied about it and suppressed information about it, even arresting doctors who were trying to warn other health professionals about it.

Regardless of whether the ultimate source of it turns out to be from the wet markets of Wuhan or the Wuhan Institute of Virology, the PRC owes the World a huge apology.

There's a theory that it's also linked to the much lower average lifespan. Not as many "olds" per capita.

I still have a feeling of dread, like a variant will emerge from India or the UK that remains contagious on surfaces like cardboard for 20+ days. My Amazon habit will be toast.

I told my sister sho still isn't vaccinated that a person in India would kill for a vaccine and she re-assess her first world problems and get vaccinated.
