States are equally responsible, but there's a clear selective bias ongoing. 

 

This is just dirty politics. No excuses. In any western country, this would be genocide.

Lol. You think with population of 1.4b and per capita income of less than Bangladesh we can just give everything free. 

And despite having world's biggest public Healthcare program, ayushman Bharat.


Damn..

how bad is our economy if it’s lower than Bangladesh… our economists must be sh*t… 


the cost of not doing enough to stop this pandemic is going to be catastrophic

It's not about if we can or not, it's about what should be done. This is the worst pandemic the world has seen in recent times. India is the worst affected country. We should not even be debating this. Vaccines should be free and mandatory. If not, we're looking at very bad 3rd and 4th waves.

 

It would be cheaper to vaccinate everyone for free than what it's costing the economy right now.

Bhutan achieved 100% vaccination for free. I mean, dude I gave you the math. It's peanuts for our economy. 

But it actually needs some critical thought so I don't expect the government to follow through. 

So much economic damage yet the government gave zilch in terms of economic support. 20L crores stimulus lmao.

Our per capita is lower than Bangladesh, our economy is much much bigger.

If you divide any number by 1400000000 its going to drop like a rock.

Even the common man understands how the government is operating, only issue is they keep forgetting once they go to vote.

We are excellent in cooking books, pathetic in execution. 

Have some insights into AB. Some seniors are leading it at district levels in UP. While most workers are trying their best, it's marred by the usual bureaucracy, VIP-ism and slow speed of government work.

Yup I meant per capita only 👍

 

Then it'll always be on the lower side because of our population and agrarian economy. Even when we become a 5-7-10 trillion economy those numbers will be low.

Absolutely,  but where we gonna get funds from. 

 

And if we do, we don't have stockpile. 

I mean the major f**kup has been not to take early call and block supplies for India. It's Poonawalla whose gamble has saved our a*s. But he has his limits, his overseas commitments are just suspended not dismissed. 

 

I think things would've been better had we gone capitalistic way, that is to let ppl buy vaxx of their choice from January itself, we wouldn't have been in such mess. And we could have managed free vaxx for rest of the population, going by priority groups.

Well, kudos to the IT cells. 

From the poor to the learned just thinks "Modi nahi to kaun ?" while voting. 

I'm sure all this will be forgotten in 2 years. Human memory is short lived. People will get on with their lives.

Last mile delivery will never be great in a socialist setup ridden with beurocracy, the person sitting across the table expects something. 

Make it legit, and systematic. No one would mind paying 1000rs after having a bypass surgery which cost 2.5-3L.

This 1000rs will go long way in ensuring quality of service.

Bro loan leke aao. Koi badi baat nahi hai. 

India is not Zimbabwe. There are lots of sources for funds. Print money, float bonds, divert funds from defense budget, take loan from world bank, suspend non essential projects, etc. etc. 

If I can find a way to buy OLED with my measly fresher salary, government can find a way to buy vaccines for everyone. 

It's all about priorities and intent.

Don't think funds are the problem, stocks are.

 

See we were always going to have shortages of vaccines and even last year before the vaccine was out everyone was saying that india would take years to vaccinate everyone. The governments biggest mistake was to not place a big enough order with SII and BB even after approvals so that the companies could scale up production.

Pretty much this. We have failed at planning for the future. Our mistake was to rely on just 2 manufacturers for vaccination of an entire nation.

we were sleeping…other countries were prebooking vaccines while we were celebrating victory against covid… 

 

I read India is the largest producer of vaccine in the world… now that hurts seeing the current situation…

Should have straight up funded the expansion of facilities in exchange for lower pricing. 

There are 50 different ways a crisis could've been avoided if the administration could take some effort.
