    For your kind info india is least affected by virus as of now. Its much more lesser not even .001 % of what so called most hygiene and no1 no2 health fscility countries. We are Indians when world seems to fail us we rise and rise much higher. We may take 2 step back but see our history we bounced back and made the world see us rise. STOP BRUT, STOP BBC AND PLS STOP INTERVIEWING THESE JOKERS WHOM YOU CALL NOW AND AGAIN TO SHAME OUR COUNTRY..

    Instead of forecasting the future and creating panic which is easy to do, we need to concentrate on what can be done in the present to stop the situation from escalating.

    India’s walking 🚶‍♀️ on double edge blade. Either way poor planning will hurt mostly millions of daily labors and their families. Explosion will start in 2-3 weeks and will continue till mid-June and isolations or shelters-to-home or lockdown will last till June. I hope, I am wrong on this. United States is a Prime example of incompetency of government cause of Trump’s arrogance and his ego-centric behavior.

    Can you please deeply elaborate what kind of methods you are taking? And for projections don't you need past data and other variables? Is it based on time series analysis? Because Govt intervention in terms of lock down can prevent this massive spread? Do you consider it in your model as a variable?

    Have you heard of the phrase "neem Hakim khatra-e-jaan"? She is that Hakim the proverb points to. Fear mongering troll. Can't expect quality content from brut anyway.
