1. Have you been back to India?
I went back to India onJanuary 15th.
2. When do you think were the worst days of COVID-19 virus in India? What if compare with other countries like America and Italy?
Nowadays the COVID-19 virusis becoming worse in India yesterday I just watched on the TV and there were17,000 cases per day. Compare with America and Italy I think India is not that bad.I think India has already learned a lesson from American and Italy. Becausewe have seen that they are not doing good and not well prepared. So I think our administration has taken a lot of action.
3. What does the government inIndia do to control this virus?
Let me tell you the whole story. In India, before March 16th, there were only a hundred cases. After March 16th, the number of cases starts increasing. So India locked down from March 20th till yesterday. And then, till today they onward that they will extend the lock down to April 30th. This is the first step India is doing. Second good thing is that they are doing a lot of testing. Earlier, they didn’t got so many kits; now, they ordered a lot of kits, and a lot of kits are coming from China to India. Now they are doing more tests. Thus, the number of cases is also increasing because the test is more accurate now. The administration is doing their best.
4. Are you satisfied with the government’s behavior? If yes, why? If no, what do you think they should do?
If you talk about the way of my country’s administration, I think I am satisfied with it.
5. What is your opinion ofIndians reaction to this outbreak?
I am not satisfied with the people’s behavior. The way that people responded to the efforts taken by the government is not good. I think people should be more awarded. The situation is more serious now.
6. What is the most available effect for Indians?
I have told you that people didn’t aware of that, so they didn’t take the lock-down seriously. The government asked them to stay at home, but they got impatient, even some of of them became violent. When the doctors arevisiting them, they do not respond them well, either. I am not talking the whole India, just some worst places. Especially some poor places.
7. Did the government truly reported the situation of the virus?
This is another tricky question. The report of my country is not okay. Because there were still some people that haven’t been tested, the number of cases is not reliable. I think the real number of cases is more than the reported number, they are not balanced.
