    Covid-19: India’s First Milestone 

    I didn’t really want to type another Covid-19 post. But one of the world’s alleged superpowers just crossed 1 Million cases of Covid-19. I think that deserves a post on it’s own merit.
    Congratulations to the most densely populated country on the planet.
    A few months ago, I’d predicted at least 300M cases in India. Now, I’m no astrologer, but for every Millionth milestone that India, and any other country reaches, I will push out, at the bare minimum, a post acknowledging the numbers.

    And before anyone calls me a hater, perhaps they should focus on the people who are actually to blame – the governments and the people spreading the virus.

    How do you achieve the feat of hitting 1M in mid-July from a few hundred cases in mid-March?
    It’s pretty simple actually. You take a nation full of self-absorbed morons who only care about their status and looking good in front of others, and you combine that with the ultimate ignorance and arrogance that can only be surpassed by a Brazilian or an American. And of course, the Chinese, except that the Chinese have mastered the art of lies, deception, murder and betrayal as well.
    The Chinese government led by Xi Jinping, is actually so dangerous, that they killed all the doctors, nurses, journalists and activists who leaked evidence regarding the Coronavirus when the Wuhan epidemic was initially discovered.

    If a pandemic consumes a nation, who is to blame?

    I believe the people are to blame. It’s the citizens who are to blame. Not all citizens, but the majority of them will directly, or indirectly, have contributed in some way or form to the spread of the pandemic.
    So the majority of people have nobody to blame but themselves.

    India is a third world country. And it doesn’t look like that’s going to change any time soon.
    Of the 1.3 Billion people, how many of them are wearing masks, isolating themselves and socially distancing themselves at home, on the streets, and at work?

    There are a lot of Indians walking on the streets without a mask on because they think they’re invincible to the Covid-19. These people think they’ve got some kind of superpowers or something.
    Reminds me of one recently deceased ISKCON sannyasi from Mayapur, India, who went to Florida during the pandemic on June 3rd, where he of course, contracted the Covid-19 and later died from it.
    Then there’s another Sannyasi in Europe who inspired devotees to gather in the temple and chant the Hare Krsna maha mantra during the pandemic.

    I think both the Indians and Brazilians have a lot in common when it comes to ignorance and arrogance.
    Perhaps the Americans aren’t too smart either since they thought it was okay to protest in large crowds but totally not okay to go to the gym during a pandemic.

    Does anyone still remember the leaked CCTV clips of various Chinese people spitting on elevators and spitting on their hands and rubbing them on door handles and so on?
    I’ve got a bunch of those videos stored somewhere so when the next ignorant moron comes and calls me racist or a hater, I can slam the evidence on them.

    The citizens elect the politicians. The politicians make policies that affect the nation.
    And if we have a look at the leaders of these nations, it is a sorry sight indeed.

    The best that Brazil could come up with is Jair Bolsonaro. That is the cream of Brazil. Jair Bolsonaro is the best Brazilian of all the Brazilians.
    This is what the entire nation of Brazil could come up with during their elections. They elected this fool. They voted him in. And look what’s happened to Brazil now. They’re close to 2M cases now. While the Indians celebrate their first M, Brazil is about to grab it’s second.
    And how did that happen? An absolute fool was the chosen leader of a great nation, he completely disregarded health experts, and now he’s down with the Chinese flu.
    Does anyone feel sorry for Jair Bolsonaro? Anyone?
    Someone send him a “Get well soon” card maybe?

    Then you have Trump, the greatest American of all Americans. Donald Trump defines the new generation of Americans. Long gone are the well-spoken, thoughtful, insightful, wise, respected leaders of the world’s greatest nation. Now you have a fool who gets mocked by every other American citizen on social media.
    And who elected this guy? Jehovah? Jesus Christ?
    Oh no! It was the people, the great American citizens who somehow wanted to make an already great nation great. How do they do that? How do you make a great thing great?

    The media doesn’t respect Trump. The politicians don’t respect Trump. Even the little kids don’t respect Trump.

    What good is a leader who isn’t respected by anybody?
    And I think leadership is about respect. One quality of a great leader is that everyone respect him. Not fear, but respect.

    Xi Jinping is not a respected leader. Xi is a feared leader. If you call him a fat ugly bear, he’ll get you killed. If you call him an incompetent moron who betrays his own nation, you might have to remain in hiding your entire life.
    That’s not respect. That’s fear, driven by cruelty. And it only lasts long enough to build indignition and rebellion that results in a bloody coup.

    If you wait for a dictator to grow invincible, you’ll never be able to get rid of him.
    The Chinese waited for too long, and now they’re paying the price of their laziness by kissing Jinping’s hairy butt on Wechat and watching the Chinese government’s propaganda on TV all day.
    Perhaps the Chinese could import a few dozen balls from the HongKong protestors before those become extinct too.

    Narendra Modi is on the way to culling India as well. And if the Indians don’t wake up now, they might end up losing their balls just like the Chinese did.
    There’s enough censorship on the Indian internet. I don’t know if Modi picked up a few tips from his Chinese neighbor’s walled garden, but it looks like the Indians don’t care about freedom anyway.

    And now that I’m discussing Modi, this is the guy who locked down the nation when there were a few hundred cases, and then reopened the nation when there were several thousand new cases daily.
    This man had no strategy going in. And he had no strategy coming out of the lockdown.
    And all these guidelines issued by the health ministry held as much value as a donkey’s balls does to a squirrel.

    However, Modi isn’t as dumb as Bolsonaro. Neither is he going senile like the silver-spooned Trump.
    In terms of intelligence, Modi is comparable to Vladimir Putin. The man knows how to survive and stay in power.
    But he knows that a third world country could never survive a long period of lockdown. So he pulled a genius move and let the country open up, leaving the people to fend for themselves. In this way, people can neither blame Modi if they caught the Coronavirus, nor could they blame him if they stayed home and became broke.

    Since the Covid-19 has been on the news since January, I’m beginning to think that it’s serving a purpose here. Quite clearly everybody is aware of the virus at this point. People are aware of how the virus spreads, and they are aware of how they can protect themselves.
    So, if somebody gets infected by the Covid-19, it raises the question – How?
    How did someone get infected by the Covid-19 if they had been taking all precautions?
    And if somebody is found infected due to negligence of the safety measures, then perhaps it’s time to rename to Covid-19 to the Stupid virus; if you catch it, you must have done something stupid.

    Does anyone remember back in March, when all the governments and various health organizations were insisting that masks don’t work? Does anyone remember health experts recommending healthy people NOT to wear masks unless they were tending to an infected patient?
    The official narrative keeps changing.
    Every day, doctors, researchers and scientists are discovering something new about the Covid-19. So officially, there is no concrete information available on how dangerous the virus is.

    Covid-19: India2020 

    The first case of Covid-19 in India was in the state of Kerala on 30th Jan 2020. In early January and February, thermal screening was implemented in select airports across the country, which proved to be insufficient.

    In early March, the Indian government’s strategy was to only test the foreigners and Indian nationals who arrived from abroad. The government refused to test the local citizens, claiming that there was no local transmission. The government has also denied the effectiveness of masks worn by the public and advised against hoarding of masks. The government claimed that wearing masks by the general public was unnecessary as they were not in contact with infected people.

    On 16th March, the government shut down all academic institutions.

    On 19th March, the Indian government announced a emergency curfew for 22nd March to see how the population reacted. The Prime Minister urged everyone to go outside their house and clap and bang utensils to applaud the healthcare workers. There was panic buying on 20th and 21st March as the citizens cursed the Prime Minister under their breaths. Modi had a reputation for blindsiding the citizens with emergency announcements that caused chaos on a nationwide scale. On 24rd March, the Prime Minister announced that a complete lockdown would be in effect beginning at midnight. Those who had not stocked up on essentials were screwed. The government declared this sudden announcement late in the evening. The first lockdown was implemented for a duration of 3 weeks. At this point in time, the rate of Covid-19 infections was approximately 100 new cases daily.

    On 28th March, the PM CARES fund was launched. Hundreds of ignorant citizens rushed to donate money to the Prime Minister’s fund. Although there is no transparent statement regarding how much money has been accumulated, the news media mentioned several businessmen and influential people who donated “crores” of rupees to the fund. I wonder how many of them regret their decision.

    On 3rd April, Prime Minister Modi asked everyone to turn off their lights and light candles on the 5th of April at 9:00 for 9 minutes. His genius followers decided to light fireworks to celebrate the stupidity of the government, ignorant citizens, and their terrible fates in the foreseeable future.

    Here’s the timeline of infected cases in India in the initial phase:

    • 29th March – 1K infected cases
    • 2nd April – 2K
    • 5th April – 4K
    • 7th April – 5K
    • 10th April – 7K
    • 11th April – 8K
    • 12th April – 9K
    • 13th April – 10K
    • 14th April – 11K
    • 15th April – 12K
    • 16th April – 13K
    • 17th April – 14K
    • 18th April – 15K
    • 19th April – 17K
    • 20th April – 18K
    • 21st April – 20K
    • 23rd April – 23K
    • 24th April – 24K
    • 25th April – 25K
    • 26th April – 28K
    • 27th April – 29K
    • 28th April – 31K
    • 29th April – 33K
    • 30th April – 34K
    • 1st May – 37K
    • 2nd May – 39K
    • 3rd May – 42K
    • 4th May – 46K
    • 5th May – 49K
    • 6th May – 52K
    • 7th May – 56K
    • 8th May – 59K
    • 9th May – 63K
    • 10th May – 67K
    • 11th May – 70K
    • 12th May – 74K
    • 13th May – 78K
    • 14th May – 82K
    • 15th May – 85K
    • 16th May – 90K
    • 17th May – 95K
    • 18th May – 100K
    • 31st May – 188K

    From 1st April till 15th April, many banks and post offices remained closed.

    On 8th April, there was news that the Government might extend lockdown till the end of the month.
    The media was reporting on Government crackdown on mainstream social media like WhatsApp and Facebook to arrest those who spread false information regarding the Covid-19 pandemic.

    By 9th April, the government had finally made it mandatory for people to wear masks in several cities. This came after several weeks of denial of the effectiveness of masks worn by the public. At this point, the government established containment zones throughout the country. The government was suppressing official statistic in a desperate bid to avert nationwide panic.

    By 11th April, there were 33 Covid-related apps on Google Play Store specifically for India. 90% of them were operated by various state govt agencies and tracked the users.
    To put things into perspective, no other country had that many apps to track Covid-10 patients.

    On 12th April, all grocery stores remained closed in most parts of the country. Many states had decided to extend the lockdown till the end of April.

    On 13th April, banks had resumed services with limited operating hours. Grocery stores were open with limited supplies.

    On 14th April, the government extended lockdown till the end of the month.

    On 25th April, the government slowly started to open up some important sectors.

    By 27th April, many politicians were in favor of extending the lockdown, but the public was brewing up for a major revolt.

    On 28th April, lockdown violators were attacking cops.

    On 1st May, the government decided to open up almost every important sector of the economy except for educational institutes, religious institutions, hotels and restaurants, cinemas, gyms, sporting events and mass gatherings. Local travel would be relaxed.

    On 31st May, the government announced that India would begin opening up in stages, with religious institutions, hotel and restaurants set to be open on 8th June. By this time, it had only recorded 5358 deaths.

    While the Indian government bragged about the country having the lowest death rate in the world, hundreds of infected people continued to die everyday without ever getting tested. Many patients who were sick and requested getting tested for Covid-19 were ignored and left to recuperate on their own or die trying. The thousands of ventilators the government bragged about stocking up lie unused in the hospital store rooms.

    Covid-19 patients in the hospitals are not fed well. Many of them die of hunger and starvation.

    There was a clip on Liveleak showing a poor migrant eating a dog’s corpse in the middle of the highway.

    I remember seeing a clip in early April of an infected Covid-19 patient in India laying on a makeshift bed in the sun, while the cops and healthcare workers waited for him to die at a distance. Nobody dared to approach the dying man, lest they got infected. The ambulance was there, the paramedics were present, but they all blabbered from a distance while the dying man gasped for breath and raised his hands toward them, begging for help.

    That one clip sealed the fate of every Covid-19 patient in India from that point forward.

    Anyone who’s familiar with India as a country can easily predict how bad things are going to get. India is a country where no sensible man would put his faith in the government, the legal system, the infrastructure, healthcare facilities and the politicians.

    Now that the government has decided to open up the country, India will finally realize it’s dream of becoming the number 1 nation on the planet – both in terms of infected case and the number of deaths.

    I find it slightly amusing how childish the Prime Minister of India is. When the country barely had any cases, he shut down everything, plastered himself all over the media, and gave himself a pat on the back for a job well done. And just like a foolish child, little did he know how long the pandemic was going to last. The man had no plans for the country. When the economy collapsed and the virus soared, when the government failed to contain the pandemic, he disappeared from public view and ordered the government to let the citizens decide their own fate.

    400M infected cases. That was my prediction months ago. I still don’t see any change in that.
