Corona cases rising in Bihar, NDA leaders have a different claim

In the process of the Bihar Vidhan Sabha election, almost all the parties have become so overwhelmed that no one seems to care that Coronavirus is still a major concern for the state. The cases have risen up to 2 lakh in Bihar and the death toll at 961, as of Wednesday. The situation is getting worse because of social distancing and other suggested measures being totally ignored because of the upcoming elections. Health infrastructure is in shatters, and people in the state are struggling with multiple problems ranging from the issues of farmers to the issue of unemployment.

If the world had to operate on whims and fancies, political leaders would be the absolute best in enabling such functioning. And Sushil Kumar Modi would be at its apex. He said that Corona is no longer an issue in Bihar. However, infection is still increasing. He further added that till yesterday, the opposition, which has made a ruckus on the corona, is no longer raising questions about the corona. In a state like Maharashtra, 40 thousand people have died due to coronavirus, while in Bihar only 961 people have died, unfortunately.

His analysis of what is bad and what is not is coming from a comparison that would benefit only his political interests and not do any welfare for the people.

Deputy Chief Minister Sushil Kumar Modi said that the Bihar government has made concrete arrangements regarding the corona. Beds in hospitals are empty. Now patients are not coming. This seems misleading considering he isn’t considering underlying diseases and other problems pertaining to health infrastructure.

He said that 85 lakh most tests of Corona has been done in Bihar so far. Only 77 lakh tests have been conducted in Maharashtra. It is not that the corona is finished at all. The return of Corona may also happen again, but the government has made complete arrangements for it. Only the test of time will visibly point towards the authenticity of such claims.
