What’s Happening in India?

QUESTION: Marty; Your model had forecast that there would be a more serious epidemic in 2022, not 2020. Is this what is unfolding in India now?

ANSWER: It appears that there is another corona-type virus which they are calling a variant. This is misleading insofar as they are portraying that somehow COVID is the first coronavirus. The common cold is also typically a coronavirus. The rising number of claimed COVID-19 cases in India is being presented as a much more infectious and probably a far more deadly variant. It is driving hospitals beyond a crisis point. The flu also attacks the ability to breathe, which impacts often the elderly the worst.

There is no absolute proof that this is a variant-driven crisis that is much more infectious and probably far more lethal than the first wave. It may simply be a new strain altogether. There is no question that this outbreak has left hospitals experiencing shortages of supplies, including oxygen.

Out of a population of 1.4 billion, there have been 17.6 million infections to date, which is 0.0125%. That number could be higher because people with COVID-19 often do not have symptoms other than a running nose. The total deaths have been often reaching almost 3,000 per day, and the total deaths have reached 198,000. While that does sound like a lot, it is still 0.00014%.

We have to be concerned about the media exploiting this to further the Great Reset. Burning dead people makes for perfect images to cause panic.
