As US Covid-19 cases hit 1M, many Americans opt to stay on in India

Many Americans in India who had signed up for airlifts back to the US are now deciding to stay back and "ride it out" during the Covid-19 pandemic, according to the State Department's top consular official.
Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary of State Ian Brownlee said on Tuesday that many who had enlisted for repatriation from India were not responding to offers of seats on the planes arranged by the department to take them home.

The number of recorded Covid-19 cases in the US reached 1 million on Tuesday, with 58,348 deaths, while India had only 31,368 officially recorded cases with 1,008 fatalities, according to the Johns Hopkins University tracker.

Brownlee said: "Two weeks ago, we had a list of folks and we were pretty sure if we called (the) folks they'd show up at the airport and say, 'Yes, please.' We're now getting to the point on that list, we're having to make multiple calls for individual seats because people are deciding 'No,' they'd just as soon ride it out where they are."

Last week he said that 4,000 Americans had been brought back to the US and 6,000 were waiting for airlifts.

Corona virus has exposed the us health care completely. It is an absolute disaster the way this crisis was managed at all levels starting from trump downwards.

Text book case of mismanagement !! Of course does not mean India is doing very well, we need to see how the situation evolves in the next month as lockdown restrictions are lifted.

The advanced countries were not prepared for a 3rd world scenario.
They were so used to a well developed state of living and were not prepared for a terror attack by Covid 19.

On the other hand being underdeveloped too doesnt help.

So again and again everything points to be on a middle path for being most conducive.

i agreed too...nice words.... i fee the same ....So again and again everything points to be on a middle path for

being most conducive.....middle path is always in common life too...india may reach same number...

Hi TBS garu,

Spore intially underestimated the Covid 19 cases and was not imposing a lockdown as they felt they can handle it.
They didnt screen the foreign workers and now the cases have spiked up lots and lockdown finally.

They too did the same mistake like the western countries but they are managing it fairly well now.

Frankly none of the countries can manage this scenario incl the developed ones.

They cannot build 1:1 beds with ventilators for the entire population say 10 million size. Or even half or quarter the population..

But being underdeveloped is very dangerous as they simply do not have he resources to even put up a fight.

Dear All Namaskaram
One of the countries which managed this pandemic is Australia which has been level headed unlike the US the results are quite good MSR
