India's Low Number Of Coronavirus Cases Could Be Result Of Low Testing

India has sent over 6,700 samples for testing, placed around 42,000 people under surveillance, detected over 80 coronavirus cases and has had two deaths. The number of cases and the death toll are low for a country of 1.2 billion people, especially when compared to countries like Italy, Iran and South Korea which have far less people and far more cases.

But experts say one reason for India’s low figures could be its narrow criteria for testing people, which the Government of India needs to broaden in order to detect how far COVID-19 has truly spread. By way of example, South Korea, which has a population of 51 million, has tested about 250,000 people since 20 January, many in drive through testing centres that have been set up especially to combat the pandemic.

In a conversation with HuffPost India, public health expert T Sundararaman, former director of the National Health Systems Resource Centre, a government body, and former dean of School of Health System Studies at the Tata Institute of Social Science (TISS), explained the trajectory of the disease, how many are at risk, and why the Indian government needs to start testing more people and soon.

“This is the beginning of the pandemic. Once the community spread starts in India, it will go up substantially,” said Sundararaman. “Is the community spread already happening? We can’t be sure.”

Westerners and indian leftists of huffingpost.in, are unhappy and disappointed that indians aren't killed off in thousands by this Virus. Who would have thought that Gomutra is so powerful?
Wait! may be they tested only a few. They don't have sufficient testing kits.
They are hiding the real number of those tested positive and those dead. Anything is possible except that India has very few cases or that they are testing all potential victims.

India has an innate, natural defence against coronavirus?

There is a spike in the number of the infected, and apprehensions over hidden, hitherto-undetected infections are rising. In other words, fear now has a new name. But there are experts who see it differently. India is largely safe, and this relative safety lies in its
weather which acts as a defence against the virus, says one of them.


India probably has an innate, natural defence against the deadly coronavirus (COVID-19) after all, if one goes by the latest theory that some experts have propounded.

This could sound highly anomalous at a time when India's worst coronavirus fears are seemingly coming true. Going by the Health ministry's update that puts the number of infected in India at 73 now, it appears that after infecting nearly 1,20,000 and killing over 4,200 worldwide, the virus has now begun giving India the full play.

But there are experts who see it differently. India is largely safe, and this relative safety lies in its weather which acts as a defence against the virus, says K K Aggarwal, president, Heart Care Foundation of India.

That could be exactly the reason why Ebola, yellow fever, SARS and MERS — which took a high global toll over the past one decade — had negligible impact on India, Aggarwal told ToI.

“This is the beginning of the pandemic. Once the community spread starts in India, it will go up substantially,” said Sundararaman. “Is the community spread already happening? We can’t be sure.”

I think The reason for low level of testing is to prioritize attention to people with known travel history and focus on treating them. But if community spread and containment needs to be done at large scale, testing is the only effective solution as proved by success of Taiwan, singapore and South Korea. South Korea introduced Drive thru testing. Even US and Europe have been complacent and reacted late.India is very late as per above article.
Yagnas may give us hope and Divine intervention but Gomuthras and Quack ayurvedic remedies are not scientific solutions and we should not bring ridicule to ourselves. The virus treatment regimen as used in China and then Italy/Spain is combination of retroviral drugs to treat pneumonia and throat issues and also plasma from cured patients to develop anti bodies. .
Now once detected, the next issue is the cost of providing ventilators etc for very critical patients and drugs for large number of patients is the nxt challenge. As cirtizends the onus is on us and it is out responsibility to avoid social gatherings/Travel unless it is very critical and important and seek medical intervention.

Will warmer weather stop the spread of the coronavirus?

Does the coronavirus get weaker when temperatures rise? Virologist Thomas Pietschmann explains why spring really gives hope and why women have a clear advantage in the fight against the COVID-19 disease.

Would warmer weather slow the spread of the coronavirus? If all goes well, the new virus SARS-CoV-2, may behave like the influenza virus. Then spring, with its rising temperatures, would kill the pathogens - and stop the spread of the COVID-19 disease. The coronavirus season would pass away just like the annual flu wave, which starts to ebb when winter ends.

Spring may be the season of hope, but it's still too early to say accurately whether SARS-CoV-2 behaves as the influenza virus. Virologist Thomas Pietschmann says, experts can't yet predict the trajectory of the virus because "honestly speaking, we do not know the virus yet."

Pietschmann is a molecular virologist at the Center for Experimental and Clinical Infection Research, called Twincore, in Hanover, Germany. He researches so-called RNA viruses, including for example the hepatitis C virus. SARS-CoV-2 belongs to this group.

This whole thing is a hoax created by the UN, WHO and the money masters to keep you busy with nonsense and panic. While real movers in the world are planning the next war to kill of millions in this world. Read Gerogia Guide stones prophecy. Nothing is done by accident or chance in this world.

Too early to say this...,and I may have to retract later...depending on how the situation turns out..

I think the immunity of Indians has either already stemmed the spread or will stem the spread and contain it.

India has faced numerous such community outbreaks of diseases cholera, malaria, TB, dengue, chickengunia and what not etc..for over 70 yrs. And almost all Indians have grown up in dust, grime, and eat in most unhygienic road side shops, etc..

I "believe" that Indians grown up in Indian environment will be able to manage this without any issues.

And I hope I am correct for the sake of all of the people.

Its simple..even Africa is having very few cases.
Its because foreign travel is not too rampant in these two countries.
Even Indonesia is having less cases compared to Msia cos they dont travel as much as Msians.

The 2 deaths in India so far has contact with foreign travel..one man was in saudi for 1 month and he came back to india and died.
One woman came in contact with her son who came back from Italy and Switzerland ...again exposure to foreign travel.

we are not finding covid-19 in villages cos they dont travel.
Tribal people too not having it.

Logically its just exposure.

Good to know this!
That the X chromosome has "maternal" effects that it is protective and since a woman has XX she is more protected from Covid 19 than a man who has only one X chromosome.

Well..an eye opener for some who think all that the world needs is a Y chromosome for lineage and only a man can teach a woman this or that or who to marry or how to behave.

Looks as if the very survival of a human is in the X files!

Double X chromosome and estrogen

Fever, pain and chills are typical symptoms of a viral disease and a sign that the body is fighting off the invaders. How successful this fight is depends not only on the age and health of the infected person, but on his or her gender. In the case of the coronavirus, the data shows that women have higher survival chances than men. At 2.8%, the mortality rate of men is significantly higher than that of women, at 1.7%.

According to Pietschmann, this difference can be explained by genetics. "Some immune-relevant genes, for example genes that are responsible for recognizing pathogens, are encoded on the X chromosome. Because women have two X chromosomes and men have only one, the female sex has an advantage here."

Fox News, the rightwing channel that is a favorite of Donald Trump and conservatives across the US, spent the first weeks of the Covid-19 outbreak downplaying the threat of the virus.

Hosts often claimed that those warning of the danger were “panic pushers”, or engaged in “mass hysteria”. Some on Fox News even claimed it was all an effort to try to bring down the president.

But in recent days Fox News has performed an abrupt U-turn, and declared coronavirus a crisis.


On Tuesday, the three hosts of Fox & Friends, Fox News’ flagship morning program and a known favorite of Trump, co-hosted the show while practising social distancing, appearing on a split screen instead of their usual format of sitting together on a couch.

“We have a responsibility to slow down this virus and to think of other people during this time,” Ainsley Earhardt told viewers. “So if you can keep your distance, and prevent someone from getting close to you that might be sick, you can save your family, you can save the elderly, and help our country as a nation.”
