Coronavirus 2019-2020 thread (no unsubstantiated rumours!)

The crisis China previously faced is quite different from the pandemic China was facing last year in the way how some countries not only did not offer any help but instead come charging in to stab her in the back with the worst kind of scapegoating, in addition to calls for boycotting China as the world's manufacturing base.

The attacks have seemed so methodical and interconnected, one has to wonder the crisis was all preplanned including the outbreak of the pandemic itself.

Noticed the same where is was very coordinated and malicious.

How come it's always Uttar Pradesh that has all these crazy news?
Maybe because Uttar Pradesh is led by its Chief Minister: Yogi Adityanath

This man is infamous already in India for being the tyrannical CM of UP. He is a typical BJP minister. Religion-first, ruthless but incompetent, and not too bright. Google Yogi Adityanath, and you can find all kinds of nasties this guy is getting accused of. Especially during the Covid-19 second wave in India.

1. Well its the most populous state of India (200m+)
2. It houses Hinduisms most religious sites.
3. Worst Literacy rates of India.
4. Always ruled by uneducated despots
5.Its basically India compressed into 1 state. You find everything here. Casteism, sexism, communalism, illiteracy etc

There's gotta be a stronger word for karmic irony here.


I dry retched at seeing the indians swathed in cow shit.
Well Indians (Hindus to be precise) dont care . You must remember that Cow is Mother for them, it is form of a goddess. So they take pride in being swathed in shit from a goddess.
There's a reason why beef is banned in India. Cant exactly allow someone to eat your goddess can you....

Singapore's Straits Times article quoted from Bloomberg. Nothing new, but there are some interesting points discussed. The rest of the article contains the usual condescending rebuke of China's 'low-efficacy', 'non-transparent', and 'political' vaccines. Which is expected from an article coming from Bloomberg. But here are the earlier mentioned interesting points:

is increasing its geopolitical clout at a time when the US and the EU have been slow confronting the global pandemic as Covid hot spots rage out of control in India, Brazil and elsewhere.

Compounding the difficulties, India's crisis has dried up vaccine supplies and prompted many countries to turn toward China. Amid this backdrop, the US, for months preoccupied with its domestic vaccination push,

at the expense of a global response.
Well that's the hard truth, Bloomberg. Didn't think you would admit that. Yet another own goal for Team Democracy!

The country has already shipped out about 240 million doses, more than all other nations combined, and has committed to providing another 500 million, according to Airfinity, a science information and analytics company. India, the world's third-biggest supplier after China and the European Union, had exported 67 million doses to nearly 100 countries until the devastating Covid-19 outbreak

If you're a Jai Hind or Bhakt, close your eyes. This is not easy reading, coming from the Bloomberg. What happened to: the Serum Institute of India (SII), the "world's largest vaccine producer"? What happened to: "India, the world's largest vaccine producer who will save the world"? China had, with much less fanfare exported nearly 6 times more vaccines than India. By what merit then is India the largest vaccine producer in the world? Its a hollow title!

SII is indeed the largest vaccine producer in the world as one company alone. But that is just one giant company monopolizing the production of Astra Zeneca vaccines (aka Covidshield) in India. This bottlenecks the scaling up of production. Combine this with the fact that the Indian government didn't invest in SII or other Indian vaccine makers to expand their capacity. This bottlenecked production issue is not going away anytime soon. China does not have one super big vaccine maker, instead it has many relatively smaller ones. And they do receive generous assistance from the Chinese government to scale up. Hence, this has allowed their combined output to vastly exceed that of India's.

This is the Statista figure back in March about vaccine production by country. Figures have changed as of now off course. But even back in March, India was only 4th.

That's all the more reason for China to seize the moment while it can. Foreign Minister Wang Yi vowed last week that China would

during a call with counterparts from South Asian nations.

On the same day, Chinese Defence Minister Wei Fenghe secured an agreement to enhance military cooperation with Bangladesh. The country later approved emergency use of the Sinopharm shot after 15 million doses it paid for from the Serum Institute failed to arrive.
Absolutely damning. Bangladesh had paid for 15 million doses of vaccines from India's SII, but it failed to arrive.

India is confident it can ramp up supplies again in a few months once the current outbreak is contained, according to a Foreign Ministry official in New Delhi who asked not to be identified. The government sees China trying to exploit India's crisis but is confident that other countries understand its predicament, the official added.

"The shipments are being repurposed for domestic purposes given the demand," said Indian Foreign Ministry spokesman Arindam Bagchi. "We have already stated that our external supplies would be done keeping in mind our domestic requirements."
Off course, China is always the big bad evil. Like India was so innocent, that it didn't exploit China's Covid-19 crisis earlier. :rolleyes:

India is confident to ramp up supplies? But India had always been confident! Just like India was confident that it had 'defeated' Covid-19. India was confident that will supply the world's demand for vaccines. India was confident that it will overtake China's economy by 2020. Confident, confident, confident... Pathetic! When China has become the new pharmacy of the world, then we'll come back and see how much worth is that Indian confidence. To make this even more insulting, this changing of hands of the 'world's pharmacy' is happening not out of China's desire to screw India. But because of India practically surrendering this title to China through self-inflicted failures. Jai Hind!
