    He had corona already once but no antibodies or immunity developed. He has already taken corona vaccination long back, that too is of no use. The bottom line is nobody has understood the corona virus behaviour.

    My granny says in old age one should sit home retire from public life and pray for all prideful and selfish actions of youth (if any). After living an eventful life, its better to rest in old age. Our dear CM will recover, the Creator will not let go of your side easily.

    Our country is doing great under our beloved chaiwala or should I call chowkidar or sona (gold) maker, who promised Sonar Bangla. Bhakths like Kirana, don't think I am right?? See the statistics and decide yourself... If Covid was an Olympic game, then we have First place (GOLD) in New Cases, Second place (Silver) in New Deaths, again SILVER in active cases, another SILVER in total cases and we are in the race for BRONZE in total Deaths. Congratulations should go to all bhakths, Chaiwala alias Cowkidar and Motu bhai.

    Tested positive twice . Testing positive is different from getting infected.One can test positive when the virus is on the surface of the mucous membrane and not entered the body tissue,as the swab only detects the presence of viruses in the nose/nasopharynx or throat. Infection means the virus has entered body tissue. It can be determined by blood culture of the virus and some other tests only. He has taken a vaccine also, he will have enough antibodies and will recover soon.

    @Prabhu. The fact that we are a democracy means that everyone who is a citizen of India has the Right to question the Government including and especially the Prime minister who is the face of the Government. No queations asked means we have reduced to authoritarian dictatorship or communism ( which translates to dictatorship). We prefer being a free Independent Democracy. Many have suffered and died for our freedom. Let us show respect to our Motherland, our India.
