    For a couple of dollars you can buy any document you want in India.

    It is the real reason why a week ago the NZ Government banned all travellers to NZ coming from India, including NZ citizens.

          • Meanwhile...in the Financial Times...

            As cases rise, India’s capital city region has been put under lockdown and authorities have prohibited the use of oxygen except for essential services.

            India continues to set single-day records of coronavirus cases, reporting more than 273,000 new infections and 1,619 deaths yesterday, with the number of new cases growing by an average of 7 per cent a day, one of the fastest rates in any big country. The surge is believed to be linked to a new B.1.617 variant that was first discovered in the country.

            British health officials are now investigating whether the variant should be reclassified from a “variant under investigation” to a “variant of concern”. More than 100 cases of the B.1.617 variant had now been identified within the UK, “the vast majority” of which had links to international travel, Hancock said.

            Officials in Delhi announced it would impose a strict lockdown for a week, following Mumbai and other cities that have placed curbs on movement.

            States are running short of beds, drugs and oxygen, leading the central government to restrict use of the gas.

            • Bed shortages in India have forced authorities to re-establish emergency coronavirus hospitals in banquet halls, train stations and hotels shut down following the September peak. Crematoriums in the state of Gujarat and Delhi are running 24 hours a day, while cemeteries are running out of burial spaces.

              Coronavirus patients have also been struggling to access medicines. More than 800 injections of remdesivir, an antiviral drug commonly used in India as part of Covid-19 treatment, were stolen from a hospital in Bhopal, Madhya Pradesh, at the weekend.

              India faces a vaccine supply crunch and has frozen international exports of jabs to meet domestic demand.

                      • NEW DELHI — More than a year after the pandemic began, infections worldwide have surpassed their previous peak. The average number of coronavirus cases reported each day is now higher than it has ever been.

                        “Cases and deaths are continuing to increase at worrying rates,” said World Health Organization chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus on Friday.

                            • Meanwhile...

                              India’s 1.6 million new covid-19 cases in the past week are breaking its health system.


                              Four months ago, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi declared victory over the coronavirus pandemic. Now the country is in a new covid-19 crisis, with more than 250,000 new confirmed infections daily. India has now overtaken Brazil, with the second-highest number of confirmed cases worldwide.

                              The actual number of cases may be much higher — testing lags are increasingly common, and some states have curtailed coronavirus testing. Similarly, official numbers report a seven-day average of around 1,300 deaths per day, but undercounting and misclassification of deaths is rampant. Long delays and price-gouging at crematoriums — amid reports of makeshift cremations on sidewalks — suggest the death counts are far higher than reported.
