We India's are trying to save the planet,for people here a mask means cover nose and mouth to prevent infection,,a fairly good quality mask would be $4,no one throws it,even hospitals in India lack ppe,in many places hospitals doctors and staff are seen walking in the hospital without any mask or protection,so normally people dont dispose their mask the same one is worn every time,its very difficult to change the way people think thats why the pandemic is not going to end soon its very tough to control it within a certain limit
Most people eat vegetables because its healthy but you cannot stock it,one can stock grains pulses but one would have to go to a physical store and spend some time because lots of expired stuff are there which would be useless,last Sunday I went to a supermarket early but couldn't find many things that I usually use,slowly the problem of availability is increasing,panic buying can be quite worthless thats why how much can one stock,this panic buying has made some small shops very prosperous because they were always excempted from the lockdown traditionally they were just running a normal business but the Covid19 has changed their fortunes ,I was amazed to see some of them had the means to redo their shop stock more things,they never did so well they look happy
Cases in India now rise to 8,17,000 ,27,000 new cases in the last 24hours,more than 100 soldiers from the armed forces tested positive,its now spreading within communities one person gets infected infects one or two more athome
Some countries that did not oppose the Chinese Law in Hongkong Saudi Arabia,Isreal,the age old silk road route which China is modernising will reduce the time required to reach countries in the far east making trade faster,Isreal has good relations with China and India but in the recent developments Isreal refrained from supporting anyone,maybe their strategic location will benefit them in the long run,the distance showed in the map will be significantly reduced between Isreal and China when the Silk route is completed
Taiwan Philippines are all supporting the US openly they have allowed American bases thats why the US has a huge presence in the S.China sea ,nothing will happen to them,America is supporting them,so that open support has to be there to get protected,Shri Lanka in the Indian Ocean is supporting China they get the much needed help from China in return for Chinese presence in the Indian Ocean
54 countries are supporting Chinas new law in Hong Kong,and only some European countries and the US oppose it whats more amazing is India is neutral,which means we are non alliened we dont take a one sided view on many International issues its always been this way,we are just reacting to a situation politically within our country,maybe that will still work in India's favor with China for not opposing Chinese law in Hong Kong,that is also the main reason why India gets isolated when it needs support like the one with China no European country has reacted to it only Donald Trump has used it to get Indian American votes.
All we India's understand is that 59 Chinese junk apps got banned,what were those apps ment for,China has banned many American apps like Google Facebook Twitter they say these sites collect sensitive information,that is exactly what Chinese apps were doing,in normal times even the Indian government did not care,its just to entertain public hype that they had to do something wortless,but we dont talk about what will India loose,I have mentioned in a previous post that China funds many Indian firms and start-ups all that will stop without China creating a drama ,all the start-ups will have financial support problems in difficult times many will close down due to lack of funds,European and American firms will review India's way of reacting to a situation they would think politics should not effect investments.
But he bought it from India when the situation was not bad in Brazil and he believed Coronavirus was not dangerous he even thanked the Indian Prime Minister,the Indian government has not claimed that Chloroquine is effective against Coronavirus,India is only selling it to other countries
For many members here who have been for longer than two years are finding it very difficult to overcome the memories of Clixsene,those days are never going to get back so its better to move on,Darkstar2 is a very good example he was doing very well but slowly his earnings came down to less than 50%,I can understand how he felt being here longer than most of us,its very unfortunate an old member has to stay away from the forum,but rules are same for everyone,as Tasman1 has mentioned location country is very important.

The economy is opening up but its spreading the virus much faster,I mentioned in one of my replies to a post many offices where people spend 6-7 hours a day have found positive cases despite the government rules of safety employees are being told not to talk about it outside,everyday is a nightmare which one cannot avoid,other public places can be avoided it all depends on an individual,its been four months I have not had a haircut and have no idea how to get one without someone turning my head,since the opening up of the economy numbers are creating new records in the past 24 hours India has had 24,000 new Covid19 cases
I was watching Al JAZERRA some US allies were asked to comment on whom they could support INDIA or CHINA all refrained from answering,how time changes everything some of US allies have sold very sensitive defense technology to China they could be moving closer to China for their long term economic benifits,if they choose China if the situation demands the US would have to take a neutral stance to protect its own interests,one country that has a very good relationship with India and an traditional allie of the US is also tilting towards China is China aware of it and is it the reason why they feel more powerful,most amazing is the US has never given India any defense technology because of it policy they have transferred lot of defense technology to Pakistan in the past.
