Coronavirus disease

Till the midnight of 8-9 April 2020, there has been a total of 6129 new Chinese Virus deaths across the globe. Of these , the US, Canada and just 9 West European countries accounted for 5398 deaths or just over 88 %. Among the developing countries, Iran and Brazil are at the top with 121 and 114 deaths respectively. As against this we lost 18 of our countrymen yesterday. Every loss of human life is tragic, but given our humongous population, India’s total death toll till now accounts for just 0.1 per million of our population. That’s right 0.1 per million. No mean achievement this, despite all the predictions of gloom and doom. While China gave the world the virus, India’s hydroxychloroquine remains till now one of the best available drugs to fight the pandemic. This is clearly one for the history books. The US President thanks India for helping humanity!
