Or, just maybe, your numbers are a myth? Go to India for THEIR assessment of their own stats. https://www.ndtv.com/india-news/why-official-covid-19-numbers-are-misleading-2329668

Hick from the sticks makes a fair comment although if the numbers are off that much, what about the body count? Pretty hard to hide that.
Jason the Hick doesn't like govts that don't honestly report Covid stats. Grrrrr.
Boy - if any large Dem state back east with a governor whose name sounds like Cuomo reported false stats Jason would be all over that like a flea on a dog.
Right, Jason?
Jason?

Now Scott, who cares about a bunch of useless old people. Dr. (And I use the title loosely) Ezekiel Manuel says they're useless and non contributors to society.

Scott O

Randy - Not totally useless. The Dems made good use of their stacked up bodies to stand on to denounce Trump.
Worked a treat!

Jason 539pm - The cited numbers are not 'mine', but issue from the ongoing labors at Johns Hopkins University. With a little bit of arithmetic, you can cipher out that even with the addition of the alleged 3.4M uncounted cases, India's C19 case rate is still far below that of other leading nations.

The point of my commentary is our country's travesty in not exploring all plausible and existential therapeutics as it claims to have lost over 400K people to C19. Testing a population subsample with such kits to measure its effectiveness is a no-brainer, but apparently still too risky (that it might work) for people pushing an alternative narrative.

Note from my own physician:
"We have not prescribed Ziverdo kit. Discussion became all the rage after an incorrect Facebook post about India's use of this combo."

On 9 October 2020, the government of Goa, on the southwestern coast of India, announced it was launching home isolation monitoring kits for Covid-19 patients. The kits would be made available for free to Covid-19-positive residents of Goa.

We could find no evidence that this Covid kit was being distributed by the central Indian government...

India’s state of Uttar Pradesh has also reportedly used ivermectin off-label to treat patients. Uttar Pradesh is the most populous state in the country, with a population of 237.8 million people. Goa has 1.5M.

But Uttar Pradesh has attributed its control of Covid-19 to several factors, including surveillance and contact tracing, and targeted testing of specific groups. It would therefore be misleading to attribute the decline in Covid-19 cases both in Uttar Pradesh and nationwide to the use of ivermectin without suitable research confirming a causal relationship.

EstonianF 754am - Thanks for that find Mr Fox. However, until the data published by Johns Hopkins is ascribed to some other causal factors, I'll go with the Indians being dispensed some form of the politically incorrect medicines like Ivermectin or HCQ to keep their numbers down. I don't believe their seeming high level of herd immunity is either race-based or due to the worship of the correct gods.

Apropos to all this, we visited our physician today, and in the inevitable C19 discussion discovered that he and colleagues have been taking a daily dose of HCQ for months. We will now join him in this regimen.

George... is your MD in a Dignity Health practice? Or a different large group practice?

George Rebane

Gregory 137pm - Not in Dignity Health.
