India hiding Covid cases
But according to the news reports for NDTV, India is hiding the number of Covid cases. As per the reports India has not reported a total of 3.4 million cases. There are two types of cases conducted in India, one is the PCR test and the second one is the Antigen test.
The PCR tests have much more accuracy than the Antigen tests. PCR tests have decreased by 60% as of now. Whereas the Antigen tests, which don’t have much accuracy are being done.
There are two ways to hide the number of Covid cases. The first one is very obvious, i.e. decrease the number of tests being conducted. This technique was also suggested by Donald Trump repeatedly. The second one is conducting Antigen tests instead of the PCR one. As the accuracy rate of the antigen test is lower than that of PCR tests. And by using these tricks India is hiding the actual number of Covid cases.
