Tonight it was reported on the news that PM Boris Johnson has cancelled his planned trip to India because of the massive surge in COVID-19 cases there. The usual fear porn report was given by the lamestream media. They blamed the rapid increase on the Indians not wearing masks nor socially distancing. What a crock!
One news report stated:
… the country’s coronavirus situation continues to worsen, with over 273,000 daily cases registered Monday. The rising cases have resulted in shortages of beds, medical oxygen supplies, and treatment drugs like remdesivir in various parts of the country.
India has a huge population, but needless to say, 273,000 daily COVID cases is a lot. Why did this happen?
Based on the latest Worldometer data, the following is a plot of the COVID cases recorded in India since February 2020. India started its mass COVID vaccination program on January 16th 2021 as indicated by the arrow on the graph below. By the end of March, India had administrated a total of 55,800,000 first doses and 9,300,000 second doses. (wikipedia)
