    Covid-19: The Great Pandemic 

    Remember when old folks mentioned The Great Depression?

    I believe we now have The Great Pandemic.

    During my lifetime people have talked about SARS, swine flu, MERS, Ebola, and Zika.

    But this – this isn’t SARS or MERS or Ebola. No no no. This is far more dangerous. And I think we’ve just scratched the surface of a very bad nightmare.

    When the news of the pandemic spread early last year, I thought the R factor was 4. Some doctors, scientists and researchers calculated it to be somewhere between 1.5 – 2.5. Another had it at 5.7.

    If the R factor lowered, it means there were external factors that either slowed the spread of the virus, or people had gained immunity.

    And I don’t think people have gained immunity towards this one, vaccinated or unvaccinated. But the only way to know this, is to test it on humans. Luckily, there are a lot of stupid people in this world, so one can judge the spread of the virus by observing people’s behavior and the statistics.
    This is why health officials have recommended people to keep wearing masks even after being vaccinated. Because they don’t know for sure, if the vaccines will provide 100% immunity to other strains of the virus.

    But there are some governments who decided to manipulate the numbers, to give people a false sense of confidence. China, Russia, Brazil, Ecuador, India…and the list goes on.

    Now we have a problem, don’t we? 2 weeks turned into 2 months, then 6 months, and now, it’s been more than a year.

    When the government manipulates the numbers, it doesn’t magically end a pandemic.
    The governments are only buying time. They’re buying time to keep the economy running, at the expense of people’s lives.

    How many people have died in this pandemic? So far, it’s only 2,877,768, IF, I were to believe those numbers. But China stopped counting after 87K. They wanted me to believe that 1.4 billion people, somehow managed to thwart a virus that was consuming a population of 332M like a bowl of fruity pebbles. Because China has higher living standards than America. 4,636 deaths in China. Compared to 569,282 deaths in America, so far.

    Now let me tell you something folks. No matter how bad things get in the USA, it’ll still be not as bad as China. America still has some accountability and transparency in the system. Even with all the school shootings and racism and riots and murders, Americans still have some accountability in the system, when it comes to the lives of their citizens.

    China is completely opaque. The government is all-eyes everywhere. Yet the citizens don’t have a clue as to how badly they’re getting fucked by Xi Jinping. You can’t pick a booger from your nose in China without someone noticing. Yet their government managed to detain over a million Uyghurs in concentration camps without so much as a whiff from the public.

    21 million cellphone users disappeared in China during the start of their epidemic. Yet some pricks in the mainstream media, tried to explain it away by saying those were the users who cancelled their subscriptions.
    Who cancels their subscription in the middle of an epidemic? What sort of person goes, “Oh gee! There’s an epidemic that’s dropping people on the streets around me! Let me cancel my mobile subscription since I no longer have anyone to call or any news to surf at this particular point in time!”
    Does it make sense? If your nation was put in a state of emergency, would you want to call people, get in touch with your family and friends, check the news, and keep your cellphone near you at all times, OR, cancel your mobile subscription and throw your cellphone in the garbage?

    To put this into perspective, let me tell you about myself!
    I have NO ONE, absolutely NOBODY to call or text. I don’t even pick up my phone most of the time. I may have called like 10 people since the pandemic began. Most of those calls were one time only. I’ve gone months without recharging my phone. Yet, I – a person who has absolutely nothing to say on the phone – still haven’t cancelled my mobile subscription.
    I’ve got no job, no money, yet my phone number is still active, and accessible to be spied on, by the government.

    21 million Chinese people, cancelled their mobile subscriptions within a period of a few months! In the middle of a horrifying epidemic where people were spasming in hospital beds, and dropping in the middle of the streets – 21 million folks thought of cancelling their mobile subscriptions; that they had no use for them. Not even to call an ambulance or check on their spasming friends and relatives. Not to even inform anyone they’d lost a family member or friend.
    Now this, is what I call the pinnacle of BULLSHIT. This is top-tier bullshit, Grade A bullshit, only the best bullshit- made in China, served by retarded mainstream journalists in other countries.

    When it comes to pandemics, I have a rule – DTA : Don’t Trust Anybody, especially if they’re some corporate journalist crook who has a story to submit on a deadline.

    The news has become a business. A business for advertisements. A business for waging political warfare. A business for manipulating the emotions of people. A business for serving propaganda. A business for causing riots or maintaining peace. A business for serving useless fucking information that nobody asked for. A business for making money. The mainstream media has become a misinformation weapon. Nobody cares about the truth. Nobody cares about humanity. It’s all about the money!

    Have you ever scrolled down a news website? And you scrolled and scrolled, headline and headline, until you asked, WHERE THE FUCK IS THE NEWS? And what the hell is this fucking bullshit? There’s a lot of useless information in the news. It’s 1% news, 99% load of crap that you were better off not wasting your time clicking on.

    If the mainstream media served actual fucking news, there’d be 3 or 4 new articles daily, at most. On some days, there would be no new articles. At least that’s the way I feel about it.
    I’m sure a lot of people feel different about this.

    So, back to the pandemic.
    I spent a huge portion of my time last year documenting one country in particular during the course of the pandemic: India.
    And my reasons were simple. I’d been there. I’d seen their lifestyle. I’d seen the unhygienic ways of millions of people. I’d experienced the culture of not giving a fuck. And I knew, if there was any country that’d be a perfect petri dish for the Coronavirus, it was India.
    And I was right. Until November last year. At it’s peak, India hit a million new cases in 10 days. That’s an average of ~143K cases daily.
    What’s the highest number of cases the US has had? I believe at some point last year, it had an average of 200K daily?
    That was peak transparency. At a period of time when India was at it’s peak hypocrisy, covering up the cases, manipulating the numbers, faking statistics, to avoid overtaking the USA for it’s number 1 spot.

    By all means of mathematical analysis and prediction, India was supposed to overtake the US by November 1st 2020.
    That was exactly my point in selecting India for a case study.
    And India lied. People died, India covered it up.

    My disappointment was immeasurable. India was cheating. Just like China, Russia and Brazil. But while Russia and Brazil tried to make the numbers believable, India’s numbers dropped from 100K to 20K in a few weeks, with no lockdown measures, no mask enforcement, a raging protest in it’s capital, and basically, total freedom.
    In fact, I was beginning to think that maybe India was the land of the pious. Maybe Covid-19 wasn’t going to infect religious people who didn’t consume wild animals like in China.
    But I was wrong. India is the land of rapists and liars. The dropping Covid-19 numbers were just a big lie by the government to keep the economy running.
    Did you know that a woman gets raped in India every 15 minutes? Just think about it for a sec. Let it sink in.

    Did you know that India has the highest number of scam call centers in the world? Scam call centers are a legitimate business in India, complete with the paperwork needed. A scam call center in India looks just like a regular office on the inside. You wouldn’t know all the employees sitting at the computers were scamming innocent Americans unless you looked at their screens.
    “Hello sir, you have a virus in your computer…”
    It’s a lie. Don’t fall for that bullshit.
    And stop using Windows. Use Linux.

    There’s a documentary about rapists in India – India’s Daughter. I highly recommend watching it, for what it’s worth.
    The documentary has been banned in India. Of course. India is China’s younger sibling in the world of surveillance and censorship.

    Recently it was brought to my attention that India’s numbers had spiked again.
    Two days ago, India had 103K cases, as opposed to 47K in the US, and 31K in Brazil.
    So, what happened?
    I’ll tell you what happened.
    While the Prime Minister’s government was busy shilling their vaccine donations and exports worldwide, the number of people showing up in hospitals doubled, then quadrupled. There’s no way in hell, they’d be able to explain the crowded hospitals and morgues without raising suspicion. They especially wouldn’t be able to explain the sudden rise in funerals across the country from all the maskless people dropping dead due to Covid-19.
    That’s where you get 103K from.
    That’s also where the government begins to consider a lockdown as an insurance policy.

    Unfortunately for Indians, their government has imposed a night curfew. What the fuck is a night curfew good for, when most of the people will be fast asleep?
    Several countries in Africa have also placed night curfews to curb the pandemic.
    Is it just me, or do these governments have a bunch of retards making all these dumb policies?

    I come here for a lockdown, alright? A proper lockdown with some proper restrictions. Like in the movie Contagion.
    Have you heard of it? No? ‘Cause you were too busy fucking scrolling through Facebook, weren’t ya?
    Do you call yourselves politicians? Fucking nonces.
    A lockdown, right, is a fucking lockdown! Like a prison.
    Wankers!
    Fucking embarrassing.
    Waste of my time.
    Fucking waste of my time!

    Covid-19: Moving Forward 

    It’s been a while.
    I’ve been in self-isolation for 5 months.
    Nothing’s changed.
    If at all, the pandemic is continuing to ravage most nations.
    The worst part is, all my predictions stand true.

    Let me go back and confirm my journal predictions about the pandemic.

    Tuesday, 31st March 2020: My prediction still stands. 10K infected cases in 2 weeks. 1M countrywide in 2 months. 1B global in 2 months. Yep. That’s 1 Billion infected Covid-19 cases worldwide. It may take longer than that, but it’s definitely on the horizon

    Thursday, 9th April 2020: This pandemic is far from over.
    I predict a billion infections worldwide by the time it’s all over.
    This won’t be over by the end of April.
    It’s going to take several months.
    The governments will have no alternative but to lift their lockdowns and restrictions. People will keep getting infected.
    The statistics are there for everyone to read. Even after many countries imposed lockdowns and quarantine zones, the infected cases just kept rising… This is a classic case where, once you fail to act on time, nothing else matters. You’re done. The governments have failed. Now, they’re done.

    Sunday, 12th April 2020: These lockdowns will have to be extended until August at the very least; which would not be feasible for any country in the world. Either that or they lift the lockdowns to save the dead economy and the numbers will spike even higher.
    There’s no winning in this one. Not for the humans.

    Sunday, 3rd May 2020: With more freedom comes more cases of infection. Time flies, and it seems to me that this lockdown may be extended from August to December. The only way to justify such a long period of lockdown would be 1 Billion infected cases and over 1 Million deaths.
    Now these are ridiculous numbers, even to me, yet somehow, they don’t seem to be unrealistic.
    I did predict 1 Million infected cases in this country alone. And at this rate of spread, the pandemic might as well push through December.

    Sunday, 10th May 2020: Russia and India are quickly climbing to the top. My predictions for Russia go as far as 1M, matching the US. But India, is going to see 200M cases. Now I predicted that number weeks ago. And I don’t see things happening any other way. Just wanted to state it for the record.

    Monday, 18th May 2020: It’s time to focus on the Billion cases I forecast several weeks ago and watch how the world reaches that.

    Sunday, 24th May 2020: India has entered the top 10 Covid-19 race. All nations step aside. This is going to be historical. 400M cases for India.

    Sunday, 19th July 2020: So, 300M in India and a billion cases worldwide – my prediction still stands.

    Okay, so I’ve been pretty unclear of the total number of cases India might end up with. I started with 200M, then doubled it, then reduced it by 100M.

    Monday, 3rd August 2020: The number of cases are dropping.
    Yet individual reports on social media show that the cases are rising, hospitals are full and unequipped, and people are being turned away.
    I think the governments worldwide have gone on full China-mode damage control.
    But that won’t make the pandemic disappear.
    Until now, patients were being recorded officially. Moving forward, people will just get infected and die, and there will be no records to prove anything. Exactly like China did.

    Tuesday, 18th August 2020: The daily cases dropped the past 3 days and I thought the world was done with Covid-19. But nah, everything is just as it was for the US, Brazil and India.
    Oh well!
    Looks like India’s been leading the cases for a few days now, and will continue to do so for the rest of the year.

    Thursday, 27th August 2020: India is still the global leader in daily cases. How many weeks has it been? 2 or 3? Well, it looks like India will continue leading for the rest of the year.

    As of this writing, the world has crossed 25M cases with 848K deaths.
    That’s a lot of deaths. Looks like my prediction of 1M deaths will hit sooner than I’d thought.

    Looking at yesterday’s numbers (because today isn’t over), USA crossed 6M cases, Brazil sits at 3.8M cases and India has crossed 3.5M cases. If this keeps up, India will overtake Brazil in 2-3 weeks.

    India has been leading the world with over 70K cases daily. And as of today, it doesn’t look like India will slow down any time soon.

    In my posts on this site, I predicted 400M cases for India. So let’s give it an upper margin of 400M and a lower margin of the initial 200M.
    This is huge.
    What makes this a pretty big deal is that the pandemic isn’t over until the last nation in the world gets rid of any infected cases.
    As long as any nation has an infected person with such a highly contagious virus, nobody is safe. This has already been proven at the start of the pandemic.

    Why am I so focused on India?
    Because India is just about a 3rd the size of the USA, with a population that is 4 times that of US.
    The US is currently the world leader in the total number of cases, but for how long?

    Anyway, numbers aside, I’m tired of this self-isolation.
    I tried to keep myself indoors all the time but it hasn’t been possible. In fact, I’ve had more exposure to high-risk places and people than I would have had, had I stuck to my pre-pandemic life and moved into the temple.

    The reason for staying at home was to protect myself from exposure to high-risk situations but that’s become increasingly difficult with my responsibilities and activities.

    Everyday I have to drop off someone who works at one of the area’s largest hospitals. The smart Covid-19 precaution would be to stay as far away from hospitals as possible. Because hospitals have Covid-19 patients and all sorts of other patients as well. One could easily be exposed to some dangerous virus at any moment.

    So the risk is always there. Even when I go out to buy milk and groceries and fill up the gas.
    I’ve noticed most of the locals don’t even wear masks. So when they go to buy milk/groceries from the local stores, they could easily infect the shop-owners who could then infect other customers.

    The biggest problem that I’ve noticed is that people don’t know how to wear a mask. If someone doesn’t wear a mask properly, I don’t want to be near them.

    Anyway, my grandfather passed away recently. For 14 days I cannot even worship my deities at home. This is frustrating because now even my spiritual life has been impacted quite negatively.

    My life has become stagnant. Some people have suggested that I move elsewhere and get a job. Well, I had a job before and it sucked. I’m not a corporate guy. I’m not a capitalist. Unlike most people, money holds very little value to me. It’s still very crucial and I am still indirectly reliant on money to stay alive. But I don’t want to make it my primary goal in life.
    In the ancient times, people were self-sustaining because they had their own farms and livestock. They lived simple lives and didn’t have to work very hard to live pleasantly.
    I would very much appreciate such a life, especially in this day and age, even though it could be a difficult transition. I think in the long run, it would be beneficial and very healthy.

    I don’t want to announce my plans yet. But I’m moving away soon.
    I’ve had days when I was very frustrated and irritated for no apparent reason during these 5 months.
    I can’t sit at home and wait for the pandemic to get over when everyone else is continuing with their lives and making progress.

    We’re all going to die one day.
    I would hate to die like this. I’ve got so much potential and skills and talent. I could accomplish so much more before my time is up. And I want to set a record that will remain unbreakable for decades to come.

    This Covid-19 is scary. I haven’t read the news for the past 2-3 months. But I’ve been very careful about my hygiene. And I will continue to maintain my precautions and hygienic standards and hopefully, I will outlive this pandemic.

    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

    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.

    Covidiots And The Moronavirus 

    It’s been 10 weeks of lockdown. In the beginning, there were a handful of cases. Now, there are thousands of new infections everyday. And I’m left wondering: How could there be so many new cases when the government has asked everyone to remain quarantined in their own homes?

    The answer is simple. There’s a large group of people, who believe that the virus will not get them. This strange belief is based on the fact that they don’t know anybody who has the virus. And this belief has made them brave and bold. This belief has led them to walk in the public with no masks on. This belief has led them to ignore basic sanitation advice.

    Officially, people are supposed to be practicing social distancing and isolating themselves as much as possible. Unofficially, there is no such thing as social distancing. Businesses are now open. People are going out and about their lives. The only places remaining closed are religious institutions, educational institutions, gyms and theaters.

    I just talked to someone who frequently goes outside. I advised them to wash their hands and feet when they enter their house. And they responded that it was too much work, a waste of water, and no locals had been infected with the Coronavirus. This false sense of security is the reason why the curve is exponential.

    I have no doubt that the thousands of people I see going back to their normal schedule have the same conviction. The virus may be there, but it’s nowhere near them. And so it won’t infect them.

    The lockdowns can no longer continue. The governments across the globe have been forced to reopen the economy. And the Covidiots have resumed their regular life. Meanwhile the virus continues to rampage across continents.

    I’ve seen clips of people protesting lockdowns on Liveleak. What intrigues me is the sheer number of people walking around without masks on. And the idiots can be seen holding up signs with stupid slogans like

    • “I need a haircut!”
    • “don’t cancel my golf season”
    • “let my people golf”
    • “Give me liberty or give me death!”
    • “Massage is essential”
    • “Are face masks the new condoms?”
    • “Fear the new normal not the virus”
    • “Stop the Covid con job”
    • “Sacrifice the weak”
    • “Fear is the virus, end this lockdown”
    • “Give me Liberty or give me Covid-19!”
    • “Jesus is my vaccine”
    • “God gave us an immune system for a reason”
    • “My body My Choice – Trump2020”
    • “The curve is over”
    • “Freedom over safety”
    • “I prefer dangerous freedom”
    • “Fear is the real virus”
    • “Covid Slave”
    • “Legalize the constitution”
    • “The cure is the disease”
    • “Legalize hugs”
    • “Quarantines are for sick people”
    • “Be like Sweden”
    • “#fake crisis”
    • “Covid-19 is a lie”
    • “My body my coice #nomask”
    • “End lockdown No vacinne”
    • “Open or we all do Acid”
    • “Social distancing = Communism!”

    I’ve seen clips of people in Spain protesting by banging utensils on the streets. Wasn’t this the same thing that was used to appreciate the healthcare workers?

    I don’t have a problem with the protests. I don’t have a problem with the citizens demanding their freedom. I don’t have a problem with people who don’t wear masks or refuse to wash their hands and feet or just have a terrible hygiene in general.

    I made my predictions when the lockdowns began. As of this moment, the world has crossed 6M infected cases. The United States, where all the above slogans originated, has 1.8M cases and 104K deaths. Brazil has overtaken Russia with a margin of 71K. India ranks at position 9, and will overtake Germany by midnight. By the end of tomorrow, India will have overtaken France as well.

    For the genius who wants the US to be like Sweden – Sweden is right behind Ecuador. Remember the country where dead people were left to rot in the streets? Yeah, I’m surprised they only have 38K cases. Perhaps they have a different strain of virus there – Covid-1984.
