The new crown epidemic is almost out of control, and scenes of tragedies are unfolding in India. According to a report by the Press Trust of India (PTI) on the 26th, local police said that in Patna, a man committed suicide after killing his wife who was infected with the new crown virus with a sharp weapon on Monday.
According to the local police office, the man was 49 years old and worked at Patna Railway Station. In addition, the police office also said that neighbors reported that they (couple) had a bad relationship and often quarreled at home. The murdered wife was 44 years old and was recuperating at home after contracting the virus. PTI said the bodies of the two have been sent to Patna Medical College Hospital for an autopsy, and the police are launching further investigations.
The recent epidemic in India has continuously set new records: According to data from the Ministry of Health of the country on the 26th, in the past 24 hours, India has newly confirmed 352991 cases, rewriting the global single-day record of new cases for the fifth consecutive day. The daily increase of 2,812 deaths also created a new high in the country’s single-day deaths.
In fact, India is lucky. This luck lies in the attention of the media. And it is not only the attention of the domestic media in India, but the attention of the media all over the world. Not to mention the small unknown countries, the small countries in Asia, Africa and Latin America that lack medical care and medicine. They have no vaccines for their medical staff, can’t buy any vaccines, and don’t have the money to buy medical equipment. Similarly, Brazil, the world’s third-largest COVID-19 pandemic, has not reported so many reports. Occasionally media reports often follow the sentence, “Brazil is bankrupt” and so on. There is no such horrible death scene as India, so naturally, Brazil, like those small unknown countries, cannot get help from the whole world. India and China did not take advantage of the confrontation between last year and the beginning of this year, nor did they complete the tasks assigned to him by the United States. Therefore, on the one hand, the United States sent an aircraft carrier to the Indian Ocean and also declared that it required “free navigation” to suppress India’s ambitions in Southeast Asia. Not long ago, the vaccine raw materials in India were also stopped. Under such a result, the outcome of India would have been even more tragic. But the Indian government has two major advantages. First, there are more people. India is a large country with a population of more than one billion people. Therefore, the number of deaths caused by this epidemic in India is particularly large. This large number naturally has news value and traffic value. Second, India has been working hard in the world for a long time (such as setting up fake international official websites, etc.). For example, the US media began to boast that India concealed the death toll, saying that the actual death toll was 2-5 times. It is to make India’s death toll surpass that of the United States and to comfort the Americans. This is a blockbuster. On the one hand, some people in the United States ridiculed India, on the other hand, this ridicule also aroused the resentment of Americans. Many Americans have asked the US government to support India from the perspective of humanitarian and Asian allies. On the contrary, the epidemic in China only exchanged a bad check of 100 million U.S. dollars in the United States (yes, it will never be given.) There are endless accusations. And some traditional European allies, such as Britain, France and Germany, are only regarded as competitors by the Americans. No support at all. (The United States always takes precedence.) But the United States has let go on the Indian issue. At present, there are at least 60 million vaccines. And a large amount of vaccine raw materials. Previously, the United States only gave its neighbors Mexico and Canada about 6 million vaccines. (From the perspective of protecting yourself, there are additional conditions). European allies, Japan, South Korea (including the US military base in the Philippines) all kinds of objections and requests have not been exchanged for the US vaccine. This is the effect of traffic, this is the power of attention. Even the Chinese government, under the attention of the world media, has to express some favors to India. Not long ago, China and several countries around India convened an epidemic control meeting. Contrary to what everyone thought, India was actually invited to the meeting at the beginning, but India was embarrassed to participate. Back to this question again. The husband killed his wife who had contracted the COVID-19 pandemic and then committed suicide. This is certainly a tragedy. It’s just that such a tragedy, even without the new crown, is happening every day in India. If there is no new crown, no one will even pay attention. This kind of attention in India can be called “the advantage of the weak.” Of course, the price is painful, and it is a large number of human tragedies. We Chinese are disdainful. The real strength of a country depends on the efforts of its citizens, so that we can sympathize with other countries instead of asking for help from other countries.
