Western Indian food is in charge of keeping Western Indians in check.
That’s according to a new report published by the National Institute of Indian Agriculture.
The report claims that over the past 15 years, there have been almost 7,000 cases of human and animal outbreaks across India, with a high incidence of H1N1 influenza in the western states of Maharashtra and Madhya Pradesh.
According to the report, the outbreak has hit the western state of Uttar Pradesh, where it has been reported to have caused more than 1,000 deaths.
The NIA report also alleges that the outbreaks have been caused by “superflu” and the spread of “hybrid” viruses, as well as “pandemic” viruses.
The latter are viruses that are not caused by any specific influenza strain and are “caused by either the H1-H5 pandemic strain or hybrid virus variants,” the report says.
In the report titled ‘Worst of the worst’, the NIA says that the state of Maharashtra has been particularly badly hit by the H3N2 pandemic, which the NIO has termed a “superficial flu”.
The report alleges that over 100 people have died in the state as a result of H3-H7, with nearly 60% of the deaths attributed to coronavirus.
The worst hit state, however, is the western Indian state of Gujarat, where nearly 2,000 people have been infected, and there have also been more than 50 deaths.
According to the NIB, the Gujarat government has made an “unprecedented response” to the coronaviruses pandemic.
But, according to the agency, the state government is “still trying to catch up on the response”.
In a report titled India, Vaccine Pandemic: A Report of the Indian Institute of Science, it says that India’s response to the vaccine pandemic has been “far from satisfactory”.
According to a spokesperson for the National Health Services (NHS), Dr Rajendra Kumar, the Indian government has spent nearly $3 billion to tackle the pandemic in Gujarat.
“We have invested $5.7 billion on the vaccines and prevention of infection,” Kumar said.
The spokesperson said that the government has not yet taken any steps to distribute the vaccines to the population.
Meanwhile, the NIIA has been tasked with conducting a comprehensive assessment of the pandemics response in the states.
