    Title itself is deadly 24 deaths in 25 days. Almost 1 death per day!!! Any data on whether double or tripple vaccinated ? Because of 1st wave deaths, either forced or fear of virus people got vaccinated. Results, deaths during 2nd wave increased by 130% again with booster we will have to wait and see what is the increase? Looks like Western countries communist mRNA vaccine boosters will have high death rate, luckily we are using same boosters so may be less here but again these western designed SPIKE generating vaccine instead of spike suppressing how they act we will have wait and see because these are emergency approved experimental vaccine with no long term study or recently just got full authorisation. (only 1 year) What will happen if repeated vaccination, again wait for another year!

    @ Shashikumar, if you were treated properly then you would have been like us having all those symptoms only for 15 days. Overdose of toxic drugs cripples patients like you. If you had citrus fruit juices and coconut water then the cytokine storm created by the body to destroy cells infected by the virus wouldn't have damaged normal cells too. It's not too late start DIP diet and vegetable juices to help the body heal faster.

    Don't be under the impression that the milder Omicron has taken over from Delta, it's resurfacing it's ugly head again if you were to believe in the gene sequencing report! 49% of Karnataka's Covid samples in December-January had Delta. Only gene sequencing can differentiate between both while we are under the impression that Omicron has taken over Delta? The highly transmissible Omicron variant was found only in 27 per cent of the samples (766), other variants accounted for 24 per cent (670) Suraksha P, DHNS, Bengaluru, JAN 23 2022, 00:1...

    Omicorin or any version which is come now is not good. The fever last only for 3 days but , the after effects are for long. I was infected with COVID positive end of december and even today i am unable to walk more than 500steps - i get tired very soon and feel congestion in my chest. the taste is gone for good and my smell is very sensitive - better precaution than suffering.

    @ Francis Lobo, don't believe either papers or MSM as they are paid to create fear psychosis to market vacs. More people died due to fear and mismanagement of viral infections and experimental use of drugs like Remdesiver which is imposed through WHO by fraud Fauci which has known mortality rate of 12% while corona has mortality rate of only 0.003%. They banned alternative treatments like monoclonal antibodies, Ivermectin and HCQ. Why daily deaths are same in last few years? Where did the extra deaths disappear? Find answers then only you can understand about plandemic nubers getting daily count as if scorecard of a 20:20 cricket match.

    Dear Dev, I have seen my healthy neighbours & family member dying due to 2nd wave. When schools reopened children brought corona home and parents & grandparents got affected and died. They had to put on ventilator and could not come back even after 30 days. By the theory of Mr. Trump - which he abounded later- you are making a grave injustice to the families of the people who died due to covid. Hope you get well soon from this statistics bigotry

    I feel sorry for those who died but certainly not due to covid and you still believe healthy kids or people bringing disease fake theory. US CDC stats or statement of corona is same as seasonal flu or less dangerous than seasonal flu with recovery rate of 99.997% is a lie according to the fake media or you? No scientists or doctors were able to isolate corona virus to prove it causes infections and deaths till today. A fake test and a lie of asymptomatic healthy people spreading the infection is already bust and those countries which didn't lock down are doing better, why? In 2 years only few have awakened while majority are still believing in paid media and vaccine mafia. For your information all 4 members of my family had both covid Delta as well as omicron and we didn't take a single pill only citrus fruit juice and coconut water and sunshine healed us within 3 days just like seasonal cold. Finally unnecessary treatments like oxygen and intubation has 9 out 10 mortality rates along with the high doses of toxic drugs administered and blame non-existent corona is the truth.

    These data are highly exaggerated all over the world to create fear psychosis to market vacs. In US investigations have begun to findout the real numbers. Even before the findings are out reported deaths are only 6% . That too never proven as due to covid but with covid. People with comorbidities and are on last lap are tested with defunct tests and are added to the list is well known fact. Very strange fact well hidden by media and health authorities is despite all the number of deaths the average death rate for a day, week,months and year are same when compared to the previous years. I request them to reveal how many are vaccinated and unvaccinated among the number of deaths.

    @ Ajay Rebello, some data are in public domain you can get by visiting official websites of CDC and VAERS. Some are well hidden by MSM and TV media as they are on payroll of vaccine mafia controlled by Bill Gates and Big Tec who are biggest investors in vaccine industries, for this reason they censor and delete any true data by scientists and doctors in the field. They are now on those websites and apps that don't interfere. If you don't believe try posting anything against vaccines and get immediate censorship and banning your account like Twitter and Facebook do. Why Natural immunity posted videos by doctors and scientists get deleted? Now Research reports substantiate natural immunity is 13& half times more powerful than vaccine induced, another Israel study too found in unvaccinated but infected people had 6 times more stronger immunity against mutating viruses which is for lifetime unlike vaccine induced which lasts only 3 to 6 months. Do your own research and ask questions with any data put forward by governments or any experts who are funded by Gates Foundation in the past. Finally read what Monty doctor states as he writes from his experience and in no way stands to gain or lose anything.

    Agreed.If government was to give adequate compensation for death due to Covid ( eg. 15 L each) the Covid death figures will come down dramatically. It is different to die WITH Covid and die BECAUSE of Covid.

    Hope that you survived this Pandemic . Otherwise, you would have been accounted for regular death due to comorbidities and no compensation. Please do not fool people with bogus statistics. Please read what appeared in Gujarati newspapers during the second wave of pandemic how many died and how many were reported. This is the fate of each state . People died due to Covid and gone and even death certificates were issued as normal death to keep your statistics down. Hope people learn from this Pandemic or wait for a bigger one to learn the lessons.You are fit for a Padma Bhushan or Padma Shri
