    Many people are saying 2% fatality rate, it is less and so on.
    Now see if 10 crores gets infection meaning, fatality will be 20 lacs.
    That will be a huge number.
    So people need to unite and fight this..

    Your figure of 10 crore for India is very high. We hope we get some vaccine in place before that happens. And also pray for our immunity to grow as well.
