Coronavirus: India

More than 24,000 new cases of Covid-19


Aces and there is 1 problem the second is the stigma attached to this many people do not want to be tested because they think they'll be isolated and taken to some government run centres so many people have many places where do you see in apartment blocks the families are being isolated so that is a stigma attached is a corona white assessment even though the government has come out and given a lot of help to the sub migrant workers and pull people in terms of food grains and economic assistance they gonna put to keep the whole thing locked up for nearly like for 34 months because India is a developing country millions of people that depend on this daily rate is that's why the government is very keen to revive the economy and remove the restrictions so that they can make people to earn more money but at the same time the challenge is how they're.

But what happened was after a month they started relaxing some of these the restrictions and in some states but they've been having a very good placing method on testing that that they were testing and placing people in isolating for example in a state like kind of like in the south but as in other states a number of days but very very low so what the experts are saying is due to the lack of you know tracing and also testing people that has led to a resurgence office of light is not able to make spreading to many parts of the country for example in the state of Maharashtra and also in the capital Delhi and in states like to.
Numbers have gone up for the past few days we are seeing a new record like 20 2020 3000 and now it does almost a 690000 it has now overtaken Russia the challenge for the opponent is is India's public healthcare system is overstretched and Italy nonexistent in many many parts of India now people with money can go to the private hospitals but many of those middle class and low income people based on depend on the government's healthcare system the government has done in a really really well you know across India registered governments they have given a lot of head support but you have to think 1.3000000000 people and some of the cities are having like 1516 0 people under a congested areas and that's 1 of the reasons why you know these number of cases are going up really really very fast and a virus and is there any indication like we see in other parts of the world the some of those look down restrictions could be brought back in now given that the cases arising.

That's what some of the states in India.
Okay in the southern city of Chennai the numbers are going up that it lacks the restrictions for a few days but what happened was people started thronging to like markets like the kitchen market the fish market and then the numbers started going up they lean post logged on for example in the city of Chennai and also in northeast of India now they're talking about the V. imposing these very very strict measures in different cities across India but what is now happening is but that the government needs to understand whether this is communicated that the second is the stigma attached to this many people do not want to be tested because they think they would be isolated and taken to some government run centres so in many people have many places out in the city in apartment blocks the families are being isolated so that is a stigma attached is a corona white assessment even though the government has come out and given a lot of help to the sub migrant workers and pull people in terms of food grains and economic assistance they gonna put to keep the whole thing locked up for nearly like for 34 months because India is a developing country millions of people that depend on this daily rate is that's why the government is very keen to revive the economy and remove the restrictions so that they can make people to earn more money but at the same time the challenge is how they're going to.
The moment we're talking about around 200000 tests per day and so far they have been about 10000000 test but that is nothing compared to the size of the country on the population we are talking about 1.3000000000 people so it is basically running about 4000 about 4000 tests per 0 but as the world averages nearly 30000 so testing is a big issue because when you look at is how this pandemic started in India the number of tests are very very low now they have increased and that's why you are seeing more and more cases are coming out but the challenge for the authorities what is happening in the rural areas of this country because many people would hesitate to go to any hospital saying that a no I have a virus because there is a stigma attached to it many people what.
Ought to come out of the house that they fear that they might be taken to some of this quarantine centers that they would be kept for 14 days so what experts are pointing out is like what is happening in India at the moment just wanted to put the ice but and the peak period is yet to come in India probably you know end of July or even August or September and I'm embarrassed I'm briefly when you mention the reference of the scale of India presumably was saying some states doing better than others and some local decisions being better than others as well.

Yeah for example if you take a state like Caroline's south and they have only 26 tests on about 5000 Texan but as if you see the neighboring state of Tamil Nadu without more than 100000 cases the difference is Kevin love was adopting did very very stringent policy often testing people placing them as soon as they reach the state they were able to trace those contacts and give them the treatment what is in time allowed to stay for example that it lacks the log down and then people are going to the market space markets and vegetable markets and then it started again that's why they had to reinforce locked out so any particular situation doesn't apply to one particular part of India however that what you thought to be surfacing that challenges that convincing the people that you should come and test so that we can give you the proper treatment ambassador throughout and thanks for bringing us up to date on this story.
And teen centers that they'll be kept for 14 days so what experts are pointing out is like what is happening in India at the moment just wanted to put the ice but and the big **** yet to come in India probably you know end of July or even all the star September AmerisourceBergen when you mention the reference that the scale of India presumably was saying some states doing better than others and some local decisions being better than others as well.

For example if you take a state like Caroline the south and they have only 26 deaths and about 5000 infection but as if you see the neighboring state of time not of that more than 100000 cases the difference is Caroline was adopting the very very stringent policy often testing people placing them as soon as they reach the state they were able to trace those contacts and give them the treatment what is in time allowed to stay for example that it lacks the lockdown and then people are going to the market space markets and vegetable markets and then it started again that's why they had to reinforce locked out so any particular situation doesn't apply to one particular part of India however that one yet thought to be surfacing that challenges that convincing the people that you should come and test so that we can give you the proper treatment.
