About the author


  1. On this planet Earth, only Chinese government is capable of containing the virus perfectly for a very populous country.

  2. I can’t understand why there exists a legion of people getting all offended by the report. The cases are increasing (as is the testing). All you have to do is talk to the staff at the Covid hospitals/centres and you will understand that the gov is preparing for a surge in cases.
