Journalist: It has not been controlled. The third wave has come and we are having 1,400 infections. We have failed.. We have failed.. I have another question.

    Hats off to the journalist, it seems like Dr. Sudath is in denial. They don’t want to admit they made mistakes. I wonder where this Dr. Sudath got his credentials to be a epidemiologist, May be he got it from a mail order catalog.
