This time, the wave is not only different but it also is spreading much faster. During the said period, 5,865 new covid19 positive cases were identified. Out of them, Covid continues to be active among 4,181 persons. Out of 5,865 people, 2,672 are women. The officials say that the infection can be contained only of the people get themselves vaccinated, and follow Covid appropriate behaviour like wearing of masks, remaining at home, maintaining social distancing,, using disinfectants when washing hands etc.

The health department officials believe that the corona active cases are more in the 21 to 30 age group because young people in this age group generally feel that they will not face problems even if they are infected, and this age group is hesitant to follow Covid behaviour. Therefore when they come in contact with people in other age groups, others also get infected. In the third wave, seven persons aged over 70 have died, the officials point out.

    This is nothing but "kall dakkuni", "fator udonvcho" or stone throwing hoping it will hit the right target and keep the fear mongering alive among the public.

    Real Kujuma, foul mouthed people like you are actually very low on knowledge. Data around the world clearly suggests that vaccinated deaths are almost none or negligible. Whatever you are saying here is from underlying beliefs that come from your faith.

    Real data from most vaccinated countries are 86% people in hospitals and deaths are among vaccinated. What real kujuma stated isn't foulmouth but reality as I too have come across more vaccine injured, they were healthy until they believed media and the government only to find they have abandoned their cause once they had strokes and some lost their family members. Even adverse effects reporting system which is routed through local to state bodies goes to central committee which has members from Bill Gates funded orgs in the past who just reject the reported cases as not due to the jabs to reduce the numbers. Tentacles of vaccine mafia are too compelex and well disguised. You can read Yohan Tengra's article exposing these from 20 years. How our sovereignty was lost through successive governments sans the party they belonged to are horrifying to learn. WTO is used to control these along with World Economic Forum, Mukesh Ambani is founding member of that group which is trying to bring in New World Order through this plandemic.

    Quoting a medical journal from Medscape since I cant post it here -New research shows that adults who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 rarely die from the disease, although the odds of severe outcomes and death are higher in older adults and in those with compromised immune systems and underlying conditions.
