What about the 1918 spanish flu then that it took the life of 12-20 million in India? Without any conclusive proof, it's hard to believe that we may have super immunity to the flu virus.
I would posit that Spanish flu was less virulent than coronavirus. Still it killed many! Why?
Under Colonial rule and post WWI, all areas under British Raj had
2. Absymal healthcare infrastructure
4. Zero public health policy
5. Unconcerned colonial masters (remember they would have been happy if the native would just die).
6. Zero medical care
All of the above and more needs to be taken into account before we come back and compare the current population set with that of 1918.
Only morbidities I see in the current population set are:
2. Hypertension and Type-II diabetes
Yes sir. But there are other unhelpful factors in today's India:
1. Far greater population
2. Far more urbanization
3. Far higher population density
4. Far worse air pollution
