the DELHI/UDAIPUR/MUMBAI. ”Corona virus! Laser pointer's dot!” A bunch of teenage guys in masks shouting and pointing at us, the journalists, who are visiting the slum, Dharavi in Mumbai, India.
In a much-publicized case, there was a group of Italian tourists are all around, in the state of Rajasthan, and could infect each other and the bus driver before the authorities became aware of them.
over The years the clamour against the tourist industry in the area, is an echo of what it sounds like in the indian parliament in new Delhi. In fact, last week, suggested that a member from the ruling BJP-the party that Sonia Gandhi was of the rival Congress party, should be tested for the corona virus. Gandhi, of course, originally from Italy.
so far, the number of the official to the corona of the cases in India is low, at the time of this writing, a mere 47 in a population of 1.3 billion people. The government has also taken a number of measures to try to halt the spread of infection, that is, to withdraw the already granted a visa from citizens of several countries, including Italy, and to allow the army to build the karantänplatser.
However, the number of cases is increasing day-by-day in several of the states, and there are probably a large one.

The number of inhabitants in the slum are highly uncertain, however, what is clear is that hundreds of thousands of people packed in a 2.5 square km of land. It is enough to walk the crowd through the narrow streets, in order to realize that the smittspårning this is one of the best. Following the hygienråden is very difficult - in all There are only 700 spaces.
there is a clear Risk that India is facing an outbreak of the corona, to which the authorities are not going to be able to restrict access. It is not only a nightmare for the indians.
as with the antibiotic resistance issue is the corona, therefore, is a problem that must be dealt with globally. The international aviation of the era is the cause as well as ours.
