Been a busy week and was watching Vice news last night. Couple of Indian Americans commenting yet again on how India under Modi is guilty of criminal neglect for not addressing the crisis during the second wave.
Have just been looking to some of the stats on the below sites. What I think NDA did under Modi to manage the second wave is truly remarkable. I also think that it is really remarkable that the statistics have been as accurate including test positivity rate and new cases. Of course, there is going to be some degree of underreporting, but the numbers are really astonishing.
Just to try and keep things in perspective. During the middle of March is the pandemic are starting to take off, approximately 1% of the population at that time or 37 million people at least one dose the vaccine.
Fast forward to now and we’re looking at 320 million people or at least 18 to 20% have at least one dose of the vaccine.
The top two states have always been Maharashtra and Kerala where the NDA had little influence with regard to vaccination rates.
From a peak of over 400,000 cases a day, we are now back down to approximately 48,000 cases a day. Unfortunately, we all know people that passed during the second wave, but it really should be seen as an accomplishment to bring down such as surge all across India.
None of the statistics are really commented on. International news agencies continue to feed on the death crisis approximately a month ago and still trying to blame it on Modi’s trips to West Bengal and allowing the Kumbh to continue.
The statistics really show otherwise. Out of the top 5 states where the virus really surged out of control being Maharashtra, Kerala, Karnataka, Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh, it is only Karnataka where the BJP holds government.
UP as run by Yogi, was another remarkable achievement in bringing down the case positivity rate immediately. All of these facts I believe should be regularly highlighted.
I have taken vaccine, so has my mother; don’t believe rumours: PM Modi

Modi also highlighted the union government’s efforts to ramp up the vaccination drive. He hailed the administering of over 86 lakh doses in a single day on June 21, the first day of the new phase of vaccination in which the Centre is procuring 75 per cent of vaccine stocks for distribution to states.
