modi govt.did a tremendous job in containing the pandemic! given the size, population India would have topped the list.where highly developed countries with state of art modern hospitals and facilities are struggling India when compared stands out!!
Relax. India has over 1.3 billions people. Lose 55,000 is nothing to be worried. If discounting natural deaths, the toll due to corona virus is very low. Besides, Modi has done the greatest job ever.
People themselves are responsible for this high rise of number. Govt. did its best by imposing lockdown in March-April-May-June.
let us not forget , we are the second most populated country in the list of 155 countries. and TB alone claims 5 lakhs lives every year in india. aren't we living with TB since decades. ?
by which strech of imagination are we projecting corona as a deadly virus. ?
how many lockdowns have we observed fearing TB. ? none !!
The nation cannot be put on a halt.
no pblms. if we reach no 1 pos. then icmr and govt will say in mars there are more cases
The gr8 efforts of Modiji are bearing the fruits. Soon we will be No. 1
if the figures given are correct we could already be no 1 never know with this Govt what is true and lies more interested in celebration the arrival of the new Jets like they have won the war or something
Don't worry. India is fast overtaking one by one in race to get the most infection and casualties. Thanks to modijis first lockdown. Still he says India is better off than any there countries in the world.
He himself breaks the lsocial distancing law by visiting ayodhya.

India is shining at 3rd spot. However Pakistan could not even maintain her meagre 12th spot and droped to 13th spot. India is now having about 50 times more cases than Pakistan. This is VIKAS, Modi way.
But we get to hear in Godi media that the entire world is looking upto feku how he is leading this nation out of this pandemic...
3 months back bhakts were making fun of Italians. Sambit Patra was passing sarcastic comments about them on TV channels. What do they have to comment today about their own Feku who has proved to be Yamraj the messenger of death?
India's new Corona cases have now reached 55000 per day.
That is more than 15 lakh cases every month and perhaps even more as the lockdown is further relaxed.
New daily deaths are rising too.
Who's responsible for all these deaths?
Economy is important. But life is more important. If everybody has to tighten their belts for a few months that should be done.
Bhakts will be happy because soon modi will make India no. 1 atleast in covid
Dont lose hope! Modi and shaw working hard to make it number 1
BJP - No community transmisson ! Our doubling rate and recovery rate better than NZ !! We have flatten curve!
Modi won't stop till he gets top spot
Thanks to charismatic Leadership Feku Modi India is Heading towards Number 1 position. Effect of Tali Bajao, Thali Bajao, Mombati Jalao and Go CORONA Go. We salute you for the same.

It quite stupid to compare the death toll without reference to total population. We should not take China into account here because news are controlled by the State.
Pretty serious condition, hope the politicians, Government, medical professional will work together to find a solution for the people of India. Simultaneously, Indians should be more responsible for their health.
PM should take responsibility and resign, let someone educated handle this crisis.
ar this rate we will be world championship
Wait for 15 more days. Feku promised on 15th Auguest he is going to announce medicine for Covid.
