  1. Covid19 Omicron BA.2 doubles in number of cases roughly every 4days. Now tell me how our National Covid19 data can be trusted!???

    Our data is not in line with the global trends with no rational explanation that justifies our data at all!

    Basically our data is useless and doesn’t reflect anything close to the reality on the ground.
