Two-third of the population in India will be infected with coronavirus sooner or later, according to an IAS officer. The Indian Administrative Service official warned people by tweeting about it. The official has written a long article about this on a website.

According to the article written by Vikram Jindal on medium.com, two-third of us will get infected today, next month or in a year. We have no immunity to it, and no one can escape it. No vaccine will come before one year. Out of each hundred infected people, twenty will end up in the hospital and up to ten in ICU. Out of each hundred!!

The overall death rate is 1%, but with a well-functioning health system. In an overburdened system like Delhi, with only 8000 ICU beds, serving a population of 20 million, the death rate can be ten times, 10%, even more, especially in the age group of above 60. While most of those younger than 30 will get an episode of viral fever, reads the report on medium.com.


According to the report, In Italy, patients above the age of 65 are not getting intubated. They are being left to die. Left to die because doctors and equipment are limited. This is a situation in a country with the second-best healthcare system in the world. Healthcare in India is at 112th place.

In India, there were 30 deaths in the city of Kota because of dengue. This was when the full infrastructure by the government was deployed. The system not only failed to control the infection but also couldn’t even agree on the numbers of deceased people. And surprisingly, this was with just 200–300 total cases spread across four months.
