  • The Mrs. says: My Husband almost died within probably that night he would have left this material world and me, his wife of over 37 years, I called 911 and they were here with in minutes he had two collapsed arteries from his heart. I was so scared that this was it, and cried in such fear and was shaking and praying so My deepest heartfelt sympathy goes to all those unfortunate families that lost one of their own, it's more then what those poor people need to endure. It's never going to be the same when you lose that person that is your rock and part of your life, I feel so bad for India and pray and cry and hope this nightmare will go away soon.

  • Please, I am from Brazil and we are also suffering a lot here. I would like to talk about a very simple and cheap recipe. An elderly man with covid-19 was short of breath and breathing hard but he asked not to take him to the hospital. He didn't want to be intubated. So the family learned a recipe which is: in a 300ml glass put two fingers of apple cider vinegar, two fingers of water, the juice of a lemon and a clove of garlic. Beat in a blender strain and drink. The gentleman who was sick took this once for three days and had no more breathing problems and today he is doing very well.

  • That hope of Sachin to make his child a civil servant is so beautiful and painful both at the same time. Good luck Sachin. God will help you . Aap apna bacche ko hamesha yaad dilayiga ki unhe ladna hain apna desh ka system thik karna hain. Kaash hamara desh ka system sudhar jaaye kisi din. There are many Sachins' and such children in our country. It literally bought tears into my eyes.

  • Please, inform yourself. The Sun and The Guardian, with other media elsewhere too, are involved in a scam, one of the many attempts in Britain, to keep the population in fear. There is no problem in India. See the deathrates also, in my other comment below. Here are the facts about conditions in India. The general media is now having a go with India, exactley the same as what they did with Wuhan, just have a look and make up your own mind. Scenes put in place for extra money and help for those who want us to believe differently. ugetube.com/watch/nothing-special-going-on-in-india-just-the-previous-same-scam_VhFhM36WAwpH2yG.html

  • Success is dependent on the action or steps you take to achieve it. Show me a man who doesn't have an investment and I will tell you how soon he'll go broke. Investment is building a safe haven for the future: with the right choice of investment that has at least 1% minimum risk and with an Expert guidance, profit and interest should be 💯 guaranteed.

  • Modi is more interested in holding rallies and seizing power or for that matter instigating people to fight against each other in the name of religion. This is a wake up call for all people. Modi has blood on his hands for the death of innocent people who have lost their lives due to his miss-management. The saddest part is that he and his party will blame it on the system or on the opposition or even Nehru! Wake up people of India, wake up! Work for a united India and a strong India. Get rid of people like Modi who use you and destroy you.

  • That putrefying Chinese Communist Party is going after the countries they hate the most. First, they want to bring the economy down of the countries surrounding them, and from there, they are going after countries that can destroy china, like the North American Countries and the European countries. So they will continue to manufacture diseases not known by humans in their labs in order to get rid of countries they hate. There is one problem with this before they can succeed they will be dead... I have never fought in a war, but I will be the first one to enlist to destroy China Communist Government.

  • There are 50k foreign medical students graduated from MCI and WHO recognised universities and Indian government is still blind over these doctors and introducing non medicos, dentists, ayush and so on. While with one step 50k MBBS graduates can get into field for this fight they are sittiing home being punished because they decided to study medicine abroad then paying dowry to the Indian private medical colleges. The unfair treatment towards FMGs needs to be highlighted before its too late

  • I'm tired to see human pain and suffering that could have been avoided if they had a proper government who cared. If you look at management of Covid by sensible caring people like New Zealand Prime Minister, the death toll is ridiculously low. Now ask yourself what Brazil and India have in common?? Politicians who don't care who they hurt in order to get to power, play divisive policy making (In Brazil against Indigenous people, in India against Muslims and Dalit), who let big political rally with no Covid restriction like social distancing and mask wearing, who led almost no restriction based on sciences and facts. Now the irony is that Saudi Arabia is sending so many tons of oxygen and yet some Indians view Muslim as this evil that needs eradicating, their mosques destroyed to build temples. Stop playing into these politicians that divides your nation while letting you all die regardless of your religion. In the end of day, Muslim, Christians, Hindu, Indigenous people of Brazil vs Portuguese descendants, you are all human and Covid does not discriminate! So why should you?!

  • Feeling all senses continuously in your body, then you'll control each breath, each body moving. I hope that the methodology of variability in Yi-Jing could help you pass covid-19 desease. To explain some phenomenon, all substances around us have negative and positive effects, called a consequent of yin-yang. When a body is infected by a strange virus, the system of whole body would be upside down, especially hard to control breath under the condition of normal air. This is a phenomenon of exchanges between yin and yang in the body, leading to shutdown some functions of senses. So, the methodology of variability in Yi-Jing repositions the state of this exchange to exploit an equilibrium of body...

Politicians should be held accountable. These situations Wont change unless we has a people choose right people as our leaders who can make some positive changes..We need leaders who care about the people and their life's. People should also follow our public health guildlines and held accountable for their actions.. stricter rules and restrictions needs to be implemented if we have to save more lives
