The health ministry would say but the doubling rate is higher now. From 4.5 days to 4.54. Its this kind of nonsense we have been hearing from this jumla govt for the past 3 months.
Unlocking has been done without any plans. Both Gujrati are clueless.
UP is hiding numbers and soon they will no longer be capable of hiding a huge number due to its sheer population and density of the population..
not just UP. Most of them are manipulating numbers if we compare with population density in india
By hiding numbers we are but fooling ourselves.

We don't need external enemies to destroy India. 2 Gujarati are enough for that.
Huge thanks to doctors and health workers who are dedicating fully for the cause and even not returning to their homes
It is worse here than at the border.
So was Rahul Right? A failed lockdown?
BREAKING NEWS: PETROL DIESEL PRICES HIKED FOR 13TH STRAIGHT DAY IN A ROW.
wont be surprised if the India numbers hit 50000 a day if testing are done properly.
THE unplanned unlocking has inflicted terrible blows to the gains of lockdown.
Govt is responsible for that. The mishandling of the migrant workers are the only reason for the spread. Most irresponsible Govt. Modiji must learn lessons from new zend.
All the two lakh recovered patients are the proof of the country doing its best services on treatment
They have not recovered they are sent for home quarantine and marked as recovered and when serious symptoms develop they rush for ambulance i have seen many such instances in delhi and other cities.
The GOVERNMENT of India is making a, false cm that CORONAVIRUS is under control But then it is not surprising.
CASES ARE INCREASING EVERYDAY. WHAT CONTROL IS THE GOI TALKING ABOUT? PLEASE DON'T MISLEAD PEOPLE.
First of all a huge round of applause and best wishes to all the doctors and health workers hel to recover 2 lakh patients
Masterstroke by fekuji.
Unlocking was done in unplanned manner.
lockdown plan was a total disaster.
Just goes on to prove that the lockdown was an utter failure
forced lockdown are reasons are slow Indian economy... al peace out
The slowdown had began long before the advent of COVID.
Congrats to Modi Govt for creating new records everyday in no of infected
INDIAN numbers are limited by TESTING capabilities !
We are racing to be no. 1 in the Corona talley. NOT GOOD. People have to understand and follow precautions.
