Various factors have contributed to this spike in cases.
Few of them are:-
1. Covidiots galore
2. Government’s both Central and State level failure to comprehend and take preventive measures
3. COVID fatigue leading to people giving up and taking unnecessary risks.

Lack of oxygen and few medicines is poor foresight of those responsible for these commodities. I have seen even some young people in 30s loosing their life. The mutated variants appear to be more lethal. People need to keep following COVID protocols.

The silver lining in this entire fiasco is vaccine manufacturing capability of India. By stopping export of COVID vaccine India is in a good position to vaccinate and control it’s spread. India has already vaccinated 135 million people. That’s a large number but percentage wise just about 10%. That would probably get things under control inspite of gloomy circumstances right now.

Situation wouldn’t have reached this dire straits if there was better planning and a little lesser stupidity.

Canada and UK have now put restrictions on travel to and from India. Few other countries have also done the same. Hopefully this would put to rest the conspiracy theories which is the basis of this thread.
Although, I would love to believe that India has so much soft power that nations would put their well being at bay to please India.

Maybe they also look at how many tests are being done in each country. Tests are a way for nations to confirm Covid cases. India does some testing (196000 per 1 miillion). Pakistan not so much (50716 per 1 million).
That is what Trump was talking about...."Of course we have lots of cases, we do lots of testing." or something like that.
India is a much more polluted country ... Open public defecation is part of their culture... Never see that in Pakistan.

Indians are known for being very unhygienic...

Same as what you are claiming, it's entirely possible for a government to under report deaths. Why should Pakistan be the exception here?
Because you can go by what doctors and hospitals are reporting. They are not turning down patients, they are not running out of oxygen, and they are not as packed as India.

India has 200,000 cases per day
Pakistan has 2,000-3,000 cases per day

:coffee: One of those cases where Canadian Government made wrong moves
It's not the no of cases which matters. It's the positivity percentage which is a important metric.
Usually the outside world puts indians and pakistanis in the same basket that's why we too have to face all that stigma unfortunately.

Some Indians posters seems to towing this line that the Pakistani figures are wrong, or they are lying.
Just a little research of the disease itself will tell you that it disproportionately impacts older people, so hence hospitalisations and deaths are far greater in the older age range e.g. over 50’s.
India’s population is very old for a developing nation with an average age of 30 and near above. Hence their population will be hit harder. Pakistan’s population is far younger and more resilient against the virus, and this has been cited by medical experts as well. Hence the deaths and worst end hospitalisations are lower.
There may be the case of low testing, but many of the young shake it off and carry on.
India average age is 27

:meeting: Unsure how Canadian Government works

Also the reporting on Canadian TV groups Indians with Pakistan , Pakistan has a different level of Sanitization

It was not Pakistani who were celebrating Holli or other festivals , dunking up and down in river in India with no mask

Pakistani Government should raise the issue to clearly set Pakistan apart from the troublesome nation next door

Our foreign office/diplomats are almost none existant. They are mostly on their posts due to political connections and could care less about the pakistani community in the countries they are stationed in.
What will they do? Beg the Canadians? You cannot just blame foreign policy, it depends on the stature of the country. No matter how good diplomats or foreign policy u have, if u are poor and have weak economy, u would be treated as such.

However, they admitted that in recent weeks, 50 percent of travelers arriving in Canada who tested positive for COVID-19 came from India, even though those flights were only 20 percent of all international arrivals. And an alarming number of positive cases also showed up in travelers from Pakistan.

I agree with the Government of Canada 1000%...

Do you have sources to prove covid related deaths in Pakistan are definitely low apart from what's being officially stated?
There isn't a source in this world that will satisfy Indian minds in regards to any positive Pakistan news. You will either disregard them completely or come up with some illusions to boost your ego, like the BS about low test numbers.
