Putin's remarks came on a day Russian authorities gave regulatory approval to a single-dose version of the country's Sputnik V vaccine.
Poonawalla defended his company and its ambitions. He had no choice but to hand over vaccines to the govt, he said. He cited a lack of raw materials, which he has partially blamed on the US. Making vaccines, he said, is a painstaking process that requires investment and major risks. He said he...m.economictimes.com
Another dickraa who's bitten off more than he can chew. I'm betting Modi & tem were sitting pretty conjuring up dreams of getting India completely vaccinated by Nov Dec 2021 till the crisis in March unravelled & they discovered Poonawallah the dickraa was talking thru his hat.

Hello Sir , Welcome Back
You were away for more than a month
Are our documented numbers believable? By even our population? By now majority of people have seen the devastation and under reporting, lack of testings intentionally all acorss the statues ruled by all political parties.
[/QUOTE]Oh dear! Ever the optimist. Thats not a bad thing given the current time.
My only gripe is we won't easily know if the situation has peaked. We are not tracking deaths properly, we are in high positivity region. We need to test 4-8 times more but we are no where close to that. We are basically flying with half closed eyes right now. We will know it only when the number of cases fall dramatically and our positivity rate falls due to rate.
I'm not the one saying it. Experts are.
A mathematical model suggests India’s coronavirus outbreak could peak in coming days, but new mutations can become a blindspot.www.bloombergquint.com
A mathematical model prepared by advisers to Prime Minister Narendra Modi suggests India’s coronavirus outbreak could peak in the coming days, but the group’s projections have been changing and were wrong last month.

In April, Vidyasagar’s team wrongly predicted that the wave would peak by the middle of last month. That was due to incorrect parameters as “the pandemic was changing rapidly, even wildly, until about a week ago,” he wrote on Twitter at the time. More recently, he told Reuters that the peak would be between May 3-5, and then the India Today publication that it would come on May 7.
You know this moral high ground is stupidity. Its like turning your face away from reality. The reality is that deaths and suffering in India are always celebrated in Pakistan and are always used for propaganda in China. In west it is used to feel good about their "western" self. Its about time we recognize it and hate the *censored*s in Pakistan back with equal force.You know very well why I felt disgusted not only as an Indian but also as a fellow human being.
Go to Post 4210 and read the last line. That you had wished for pendemic to spread in Pakistan and how much fun that would be for you. No matter what the enmity we might have with them, that's not what any sane person including Indians will wish for. Utterly disgusted.
Its the problem of order of magnitude.Active cases? No. It's impossible for any country to get an accurate number for this.
Its not passing the smell test (pardon my morbid language). 4000 to 5000 extra deaths cannot cause over flow of crematoriums all over India.Deaths? Not very accurate but should be quite close to the actual number.
From the very article you are quoting :
The truth is, data about extent of present situation is pandemic is highly unreliable. Only thing we know is that it is bad, really bad. What is the extent? No one knows. We are neither testing enough or capturing enough data about death and hospitalization or development of severe symptoms to comment on the disease.
Lastly, never compare predictions with past. Prediction are well unreliable for obvious reasons. Hence compare them to europe once it is done.
Remember, last year the same experts were saying the pandemic will peak in may then june then july. It went all the way upto october.
They were wrong then because everybody was wrong at that point, when they assumed it was the UK variant going around, not the double mutant.
Last year, they said it will peak in September and it did.
Well when districts say there are only 10-12 deaths a day and there are 30-40 pyres lit while equal number waiting for cremation, I don't see what else to conclude but that we are massively underreporting the deaths.Yes, it can. Our crematoriums have not been designed for mass cremations.

Are you trolling?
Don't just stop at the headline, look at who is doing the study first.
Most experts -- based on speculations around what'll happen after May 3 and the government's preventive strategy -- agree the COVID-19 cases will start peaking May-end or June.
Afair share of Indian population can acquire herd immunity probably by winter this year or early next year, said Professor K Srinath Reddy of the Public Health Foundation of India.
Reddy expects COVID-19 cases in the country to peak out by early May in an event of a successful lockdown.
Reddy, also a member of the National Task Force on COVID-19 management, says testing is a useful tool, but not a panacea to control infection.
The US-based Centre for Disease, Dynamics and Economic Policy (CDDEP), has in its report dated April 20 said India’s total SARS-COV-2 infections up to September could be as high as 111 crore, even with “hard lockdown, continued social distancing and isolation of cases”
The Indian Chest Society (ICS) has evaluated that India is likely to experience its peak in terms positive Covid-19 cases by the end of April.
The coronavirus epidemic could peak in India by the middle of May and gradually peter out after that
A report based on modelling exercise by international experts has predicted three different possibilities
Will those people be able to update the number of deaths reported by Ministry of Health each day? I doubt that.How do you under-report death?
Are people so stupid that they won't know the the reason for the death of their kin?
