Due to fear of this pandemic people feel fear inside them which is the main reason ur immune system gets affected or gets weak due to fear which is a negative thought or feeling for people getting affected with covid-19. A person who takes precautions & does not take the negative thought of fear inside them will not get affected with any kind of pandemic like covid-19

Amid the surge in coronavirus cases, the Uttar Pradesh government is providing oximeters and thermal scanners for cows housed in the state's 'gaushalas'. More like this  From Mata to Menace: How the holy cow may end up 'eating' votes  IMAGE: Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath feeds cows at Gaushala in Gorakhpur. Photograph: ANI Photo A recent press release from Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath's office also said the state government has issued instructions to set up help desks in every district for the welfare of cows, taking forward its cow protection agenda. The government has issued instructions that all cowsheds must strictly follow the COVID-19 protocol, and made wearing masks and frequent thermal screening mandatory there.    It is providing thermal scanners and oximeters, apparently to detect early symptoms in animals of COVID-19, which authorities said Thursday had killed 353 people in the state over the past 24 hours. There are reports of hospitals turning away patients and long waits at crematoriums at several places in the state as it battles the second wave of the pandemic. The press release on cowsheds said the 'gaushalas' will be 'equipped with all the medical equipment such as oximeters and thermal scanners for cows and other animals as well'. 'In view of the current Covid situation, a total of 700 help desks for the welfare of cows have been set up across the districts of the state. With this, 51 oximeters and 341 thermal scanners have also been provided to ensure better animal care and testing,' it said. The statement said stray cows in large numbers are being given shelter at the 'gaushalas' due to the efforts of the chief minister. The government is also rapidly increasing the number of the existing cow shelters to deal with the stray cattle menace, it said. Giving overall figures, it said 5,268 cow protection centres have ensured the well-being of 5,73,417 animals so far in the state. Apart from these, there are larger cow sanctuaries as well in the state.   The statement also referred to 'fodder banks', set up during Adityanath's tenure. There are 3,452 of them, feeding stray cattle. Under the 'Mukhya Mantri Besahara Gauvansh Sahbhagita Yojana', the UP government gives Rs 900 per month to farmers who take care of stray cattle. In 2020-21, the state government gave Rs 38.98 crore to 130 cow shelters.

People will die of deadly diseases. (Jeremiah 16: 4) 10. They will be not be able to mourn for their dead. They will not be able to bury their dead. Jeremiah 16: 4 11. They will not go to the house of sorrow. And will not show sympathy. (Jeremiah 16: 5) 12. Big and small, old and young will die. There will be no one to bury them. (Jeremiah 16: 6) 13. It is forbidden to go to a feast/celebrations. (Jeremiah 16: 8) 14. Come, my people, enter your chambers, and shut your doors: hide thyself for a little while, till the fury pass away. (Isaiah 26:20) 15. The pride of men shall be humbled, and the lofty shall be humbled. (Isaiah 2:11) 16. Wash your hands so that they do not die. (Exodus 30: 18-21) 17. Keep distance if you have symptoms. Cover Mouth and Avoid Contact (Leviticus 13: 4,5,46 Mask) 18. Whoever is sick should stay inside their tent for 7 to 14 days (Leviticus 13: 4-5, )

Our polticians are responsible for this wave of covid. 3 Months Ago the health minister claimed victory over Covid, political parties like BJP, TMC, etc. held huge and massive political rallies which became superspreader events. Truly our country's politicians are pathetic.
garyish Ай мурун
Yes but there's a thing called individual responsibility. Mumbai is doing better than Delhi because of both BMC and because almost all Mumbaikars have been masking up. Something you didn't see in north India where everything from holi to nizamuddin to kumbh to election rally was going on like it is 2019.. I support Modi's reform agenda but I have attended ZERO rallies. Support doesn't mean stupidity.

Earlier, for many decades, I heard that there were far more births in that country than deaths. Up to about 2019 and earlier, all over India, in a city where 100 new babies were born overnight in 10 hospitals, about 5 Funeral places in that same city wound have about 5 people to bury or cremate each of the five funeral homes or funeral pyre places. In other words, in India, there were way more births than deaths in that country for the last 100 years or so, every year. Even in 2020, there were relatively few coronavirus deaths in that country, and there were more births in uneducated families. From April of 2021, or from about April 1st, 2021, every thing changed and there was a surge of coronavirus cases in India in industrialized states and cities. In places with many cases, there were many interactions by local employees with multinational companies and with countries such as China and all other advanced countries of the world. For decades in India the state government officials or ministers used to say they fear asking uneducated people or poor people to have less babies, as this results in less votes from the public to the political party of their liking.
