so 6 days par lakh has been reduced to 4.5 days by mid July it will be 2 days per lakh. still we are better than other countries.
Also, add that India will pass Russia by next week to grab the #3 spot !!! And definitely No Community Spread OK ?
Don't worry. We will cross russia in a couple of days.
India is now in full throttle and will surpass US very soon
Now center will order to reduce testing..
Even if we overtake USA, still this Modi govt., will have finer things to say with dubious algorithms. Absolutely shameless.
And the govt will continue talking about the recovery rate. It seems that they are not concerned about the deaths of its citizens

Still modiji and amit shah will say . We have controlled these numbers on account of 4 hours notice lock down . Our ratio is better . We just floow what other countries does . Modiji always follows advice received from foreign friends

We will never know when the community spread started and ended.
india's population is its biggest enemy...one child policy is a must.
for a couple of years indians should have NO children.
The longer this continues the more serious damage it will cause to the economy.
We still hardly test 2,00,000 samples per day and we continue to register such an upsurge in infection numbers.

Master stroke by Modijee.
Total indiscipline and not following guidelines is the cause. The mass illiterate population is having a just don't care attitude.
Fake news by anti-nationals. We must trust Modi and his ministers, who speak the truth, nothing but the truth.
The police or other authorities cannot keep chasing a billion population. It is upto the citizens to follow rules and guidelines.
Many advanced nations.... are struggling now.... the virus spike is alarming in many nations.... why pick up only India - its numbers.....?
As they say sometimes ignorance is bliss, go nment is testing very low particularly in states like UP, BIHAR, that is when compared with how many tests conducted per million population. Stop testing, no cases, no trouble for people and go nment, everything will be fine. HAA, HAA.
Very interesting people objected during lockdown for facing hardship and defied lockdown guidance now blaming govt again.
indians should breed a lot less in the first place.
Yesterday only our Health minister was boasting that we are about to reach 1 Cr tests..
