I don’t understand what makes people think that Indians are immune to Covid-19 and that India will not see as many cases as Europe or USA have.
The Indian Council of Medical Research is still adamant on their hypothetical theory based on sheer lack of mathematical ignorance that India has still not seen any kind of exponential rise.
While the numbers happen to suggest otherwise. Now, I agree that India hasn’t recorded as many cases as USA, but is that really the kind of comparison we should be making? Also, the rate of testing in USA is light years ahead compared to that in India.
The number of cases in India have gone from 12,000 on the 15th of April to nearly 23500 on the 23rd. Also, the number of cases in Nepal went from 9 on the 11th of April to 48 on 23rd.
Also Bangladesh, that recorded a mere 50 cases between 15th February and 1st April, now has over 4600 cases.
Now, where I come from, and what I have learnt while acquiring PhDs in the field of Theoretical Physics, this is exponential growth. And that too, a disturbing one.
Even for India, the number of cases between 15th February and 15th April were near about 12000 which rose by another 12000 in next 8 days.
So yeah, if Mathematics were to be applied correctly, that is what one calls “Exponential Growth”.
And this is why “MATHEMATICS” is important.
