CORONA – What India Faces

Checked the demographics of the developed countries of the world and was startled.

The population figures go like this –

USA – 33.1 Crores 
Russia -14.6 Crores 
Germany – 8.5 Crores 
Turkey – 8.4 Crores 
UK – 6.8 Crores
France – 6.5 Crores 
Italy – 6.1 Crores 
Spain – 4.7 Crores 
Poland – 3.8 Crores 
Romania – 1.9 Crores
Netherlands – 1.7 Crores 
Greece – 1.7 Crores 
Belgium -1.2 Crores 
Czech Republic – 1.1 Crores 
Portugal – 1.1 Crores 
Sweden – 1 Crore 
Hungary – 1 Crore
Switzerland – 0.9 Crore
Bulgaria – 0.7 Crore 
Denmark – 0.6 Crore 

*Total* – 105. 3 Crores

The rest of the 25 smaller European countries combined (there are 44 countries in the European continent) – 6 Crores

*Europe – 105.3 + 6 = 111.3 Crores*

Adding the populations of Brazil (21.2 Crores) and Argentina (4.45 Crores) 

111.3 Crores + 25.65 Crores = 136.95 Crores

Thus, finally you have arrived at India’s population figure of 136 – 138 Crores.

The implication of managing Covid19 in India is as enormous a task as managing it in the entire Europe plus USA, Brazil and Argentina.

It’s easy to criticise!!


Who says we haven’t saved million lives with lockdown?
Who says Govt had not taken right decisions at right time for lockdown in staggering the infected population? Eventually most people would be infected, yet our strong Medical system won’t crash with tsunami of patients by opening up.
The support package is overwhelmingly appreciated globally but naysayers will continue critisizing. Ignore them and believe in yourself, your country & our Govt.

Salutes & Gratitude to all those warriors who are working daily to serve this great nation.
