    I get the frustration.. horrible what’s happening, beyond awful. But this really doesn’t help. It just gives the virus another last ditch chance to inflict damage before the final hurdle.

      2.3% of those tested have traces of covid DNA, the virus here to stay but is now no more fatal and life threatening than the Flu, and that’s a fact

        Do you have a source for that fact?

        Because otherwise I think we’d have to class that as an opinion.

        not as low as you think. governments are just saying that to make it seem as though they are gifting us the outdoors as a present, because they’ve closed everything else. its an attempt to appease. but still risky outdoors. sure its all over the world. the whole world didn’t just get it indoors. its licking through India outdoors.

          Have you been to India ? Are you aware how social distancing is a luxury accessible only to the rich ?

            I worked as a doctor in Mumbai for 2 years so I’m fully aware and it supports my argument that outdoors is also risky for spreading covid

            interesting, it’s usually the other direction the doctors travel :)

            So far, India has a lower cumulative fatality rate per million than UK, US, France, Germany and Canada and nowhere near as steep a rise as the first three. Of course there are those who say that India is not reporting properly but if that is the case- then who is?

            Source: https://ourworldindata.org/covid-deaths – Cumulative Confirmed COVID-19 deaths per million people.

            India is also the leader in treating people at home early before they become seriously ill. They produce four fifths of the world’s supply of Hydroxychloroquine and, recently licensed Ivermectin for Covid-19 treatment. A suspicious mind might conclude that is the real reason for the western media’s recent hysterical coverage- who knows.

            Their performance has been quite good given that unlike the others mentioned, the high numbers living in extreme poverty means there is little chance of social distancing or adequate sanitation.

            they also do rituals to boost their immune system, where they cover themselves in cow dung which helps a lot

            India’s rates are rising yes but they are also rolling out the drug promised to be the most effective against mild CoVid-19 disease. As I said they are nowhere near the others mentioned, despite having conditions which are perfect for a huge spike.

            As for the suspicious mind- FDA emergency use is only allowed when there is no effective alternatives- does Ivermectin work? The Indian government seems to think so. I prefer to take my cue from the Indian media rather than the Guardian, thanks all the same.

            ‘Seem to think’ is now doing the same sort of heavy lifting in reference to the Indian government as it did for Trump, I see. Frankly, it comes across as a desperate measure with the fatalities climbing.
