Hardeep Singh Puri, @HardeepSPuri :
- Commentators around the world are eager to paint a motivated narrative of what without doubt is India’s exemplary & effective response to combat the #COVID19 pandemic. But facts speak louder than fiction.
- ICMR has already conducted a whopping one million RT-PCR tests for COVID19.
- A commendable effort by the team of scientists, doctors, field workers & lab technicians who have shown tremendous determination in these difficult times.
- Though every life matters & every loss of life is unfortunate, India has been able to restrict mortality at 0.76 per million.
- Compare this with the staggering number of deaths recorded in most other countries.
- Some nations have reported up to a staggering 630 deaths per million people.
- Let us stop picking holes & instead stand by our #CoronaWarriors in their remarkable fight.
