    High Numbers ? Count using which tests ? If one says with these RTPCR tests whose validity got over on 31st Dec 21 as per US CDC emergency usage guildlines document, (common cold) cases count would naturally increase during winter. Mafia doesn't want these tests to go, good lab, mask, vaccine, sanitizer, thermal scanner, ppe, expensive drugs, ICU, online business and good commission to stakeholders?... CDC believes in 3 waves but greedy mafia influences and wants common viral RTPCR tests countinue till the common cold and flu gets vanished from this world and to sell more boosters, more hospitalization for fear of virus?

    Karnataka administration under capricious leader Bommai does not have any clear strategy to tackle with Covid..... On one side RTPCR certification Is insisted for other state travellers which is just to hoodwink the state people and on the other side 90% of the state population freely roam without masks..... Even the policeman checking RTPCR is found without masks..... Congress did padayatra and the weak administration could do nothing..... Neither administration is able to inspire people nor people have fear or respect for the administration.... Bommai will soon add a feather in his cap overtaking Maharashtra
