What's happening in India is horrific.

According to the BBC stats show More or Less, there will almost certainly be more Covid deaths in 2021 than in 2020. India is a big driver in that fact. The deaths per capita are still way below the UK and the US, but 1. it has a population of 1.4b and 2. it is believed that lots of Covid cases and deaths are undiagnosed b/c of the limits of the Indian medical system

>India

Saw some of the BBC coverage on that. The scary part is that the cases are still spiking so fatalities will inevitably rise.

Read a fair bit of vaccine nationalism in the UK (particularly wrt to the EU to justify Brexit apparently), hopefully the wider world population can quickly catch up with the %s seen in UK, Israel and the US.

India sittiing on about 10% of its population vaccinated. Must be a huge operation to vaccination ~1B adults.
