A detailed thread to dismantle Jim O’Neill’s bigoted claim “thank god this didn’t start in India”. This will show how India has dealt with the treatment of COVID-19 with far greater tenacity and firmness than ALMOST ALL countries.👇

#CoronaOutbreak
#coronavirusinindia
1.Firstly,despite sharing a border of 3,488 km with China, India hs only reported 78 cases & 1 death- compare that with 596 cases & 8 deaths in the UK.

2. India is the only country in the world to evacuate its citizens 6 times and evacuated the most number of foreign nationals.
3. The Indian Air Force evacuated a total of 723 Indians, 37 foreign nationals from Wuhan. India evacuated 119 Indians and 5 foreign nationals from Japan IAF also evacuated 58 Indian pilgrims from Iran on the 10th of March. Total: 900 Indians and 48 foreign nationals.
4. India is leading the fight against COVID-19 in the South Asian region, offering diplomatic, humanitarian and medical assistance to its neighbours.
5. A total of 56 Virus Research Diagnostic Laboratories (VRDLs) have been set up in India to test its citizens as well as foreign citizens in a record time, with a plan to build 56 more VRDLs in the next month. This insane level of efficiency hasn't caught the eye of the media.
6. India currently has one of the world’s most efficient and reliable testing systems, reducing the time taken to get test results back from 12-14 hours to four hours. US health officials have admitted that their system is failing and has testing has been very sluggish
7. As a result, from Iran, Afghanistan up to Timor Leste, countries in Asia have been requesting India to help set up testing facilities in their countries.
8. India has sent 6 top scientists to set up a make-shift lab and testing facility in Iran to test 6000 of its citizens because Iranian officials refused to test Indians due to their high load. India plans to send 3 more airplanes in the next week to airlift its citizens.
9. India has provided 15 tonnes of medical assistance comprising masks, gloves and other emergency medical equipment to China.
10.India hs sent Maldives a 14 member medical team comprising of pulmonologists, anaesthetists, physicians & lab technicians & also a large composite of COVID-19 medical relief to assist Maldives health authorities
11. India has screened 1,057,506 people frm 30 airports & 77 port
12. India has suspended all visas to India as well as visa-free travel facility fr OCI cardholders. It has closed its border with Myanmar. The Indian nationals coming from COVID-19 hit nations after 15 February will be quarantined for 14 days.
This in contrast with the UK with far more cases but no quick action whatsoever.

13. India has the world’s biggest state-sponsored health assurance scheme, covering over 500 million beneficiaries (approximately 8 times the size of the UK).
14.Indian drug prices r among cheapest in the world.Medbelle ranks us as one of the 5 countries with the lowest median prices fr drugs arnd the world due to an elaborate price control mechanism fr drugs & the government’s Jan Aushadi project to provide cheap affordable medicines
15. China had silenced the doctor who identified COVID-19 & he died 6 weeks later. China let this brew. On the other hand, when Nipah virus was found in India in 2018, 3 doctors identified it and authorities immediately reported it to WHO.
2000 quarantined and 17 died in total.India would have NEVER allowed it to become a pandemic.

The Indian civilization, being one of the most advanced in the world, has been way ahead of its time with gifting the world the Namaste- which is now propagated by every world leader.
Ancient India idealised vegetarianism and expounded Ayurveda, and as a result, did not come in contact with any serious threat from plagues/ diseases in its millenniums of existence. India NEVER created any pandemic in the history of its existence.
