  1. These people were tested (and incidentally identified as positive) only because they traveled. It is shocking that so many of those people are turning out to be positive. This means a lot of people who are not tested are already positive and we may never know which means we are actually in the advanced stage of community infection.

  2. Majority of the population may have already had the virus come and go and nobody, including the host, would have noticed it. It’s no different than people getting a lurgy every winter. It comes, the body immune system fights it off and it goes. You don’t create quarantine, test etc.

    How long is it going to take for the country to realise this is all a farce? Are they going to continue to lockdown as soon as they lift it and more arrive from the outside state and we go into a never ending loop? If this continues we will soon have a civil war breaking out because people will get to the street just to find food.

    I repeat again, if this virus had plague-like symptoms, no amount of lock-down would have contained it and we would have already lost half the population. Indian government should stop listening to the West and their puppet WHO. They are playing their own globalist games – it’s a power-play. They don’t want to Trump coming to power again while the socialists in Europe are losing it due to their decades of mismanaging the EU. They want to put a system in place where people can not get to the street to protest. European banking system is bust. It’s only a matter of time. Why is no one trying to put two and two together?
