The Numbers is coming down…they as won the covid war since the begining Of this year

  14. When India hits 2,000,000 deaths, it will nearly equal America's per capita death toll. Of course the India death toll only counts those lucky enough to die in hospital. Many, many more are dying at home and in the streets, because the hospitals have no room for most of those needing hospital care.
