    Why cases are increasing? If These RTPCR tests positive for common cold and flu then definately cases increase during this rainy season as common cold are also corona viruses. This is how Western liberal elites and communist chinese make use of slightly modified common cold with the hyped number through these cold and normal flu figures using RTPCR test, to raise fear to force equally deadly and infecting adeno virus vaccine and other vaccines to spread the virus even more, to make more billions dollors in vaccine business, same time depopulate billions to save planet from so called global warming? And we indians including, doctors, media, politicians, administration blindly assisting them in their crime against humanity? And their plan looks like with vaccines reduce immunity and then bring some other strong virus monkey pox, ebola, small pox to reduce population in the name of saving planet from global warming ? Same time gobble world resources and to bring comminist new world order ?

    Time to nip the virus in the bud. Close the border for all unessential traffic . Commuters who have received the two dozes of the vaccine only be allowed in. better safe than sorry.
