Indian origin home minister, Priti Patel, must explain as to how this Indian variant endup in UK. Why India, despite being epicenter of covid and now having it's own variant is not in red list of countries?

It is beyond being criminal negligence.

@waz Does this give you idea of the Indian soft and hard power. Pakistan was banged up on red list two weeks ago. India glowing red hot with covid radiating like a nuclear fallout and now we even have a Indian variant detected.

Yet India is still not on the red list.

True, and this has now hit them in the faces. You should see the comments section on some of the right leaning papers.

We had heard of super spreader individuals but this is turning out to be a super spreader country.

Hear what sky reporter said, why Pakistan and Bangladesh is on red list and India isnt?

This is criminal negligence by Boris government and now heads must role. It's not like no one knew about India being epicenter of covid but reports of "Indian virus" was already known. There is no excuse on this, atleast priti patel must be fired.

Indian variant COVID virus is like the ISI: unable to detect and can bypass the immune system!! It’s like the death warrant from the virus being issued at its will....

Put RAW/RSS/Hindutva agents in high places, and see the ISI reaction....

This just keeps on getting worse. Boris you moron....

Scientists said the appearance of the "double mutant" strain was a "disaster" and branded the prime minister "crazy" for still considering a trade trip to India later this month.

Experts have questioned why India has not yet been added to the red list of countries given the concern over the strain.


Professor Christina Pagel, professor of operational research at University College London, had previously branded the the prime minister's planned trade trip to India "crazy".

But she said even though it had already been detected, it did "not make going okay".


Deepti Gurdasani, senior lecturer in epidemiology at Queen Mary University of London urged the government to act, tweeting: "Not only do we are we continuing to see rises of the so-called South Africa variant, despite efforts to contain it, we also seem to have imported the double mutant from India – with *77* cases identified so far.

"When were these identified? And why isn't the govt acting?

It's more than criminal negligence, despite Pakistan being put on red list with much lower number of cases compared to India, India still remains on the green list, I would not be surprised if Boris announces further Covid restrictions.

Let us compare Pakistan, BD and India in terms of the virus situation:

Pakistan has stabilised at 2.3 new daily cases per 100,000 population.


BD peaked at 4.2 new daily cases per 100,000 population and this is coming down now. It is now at 3.6 cases per 100,000 population.


India is still climbing steeply and is at 12.5 new daily cases per 100,000 population and no sign of any slowdown in the rapid increase as of yet.


So BD and Pakistan that are both in much better positions get put on the UK "red list", but not India which is in a much worse position. :cheesy:
