On Monday, The Times Of India published an article in its daily edition entitled, When you Get the Flu, there’re only two Fish in the Bowl.
The article was a humorous look at the situation in India.
“On Tuesday, the number of fish caught in India increased by nearly 20 per cent to 1.8 lakh,” the article said.
The number of people who are sick with flu is still not over.
In the month of August, India recorded a total of 718 deaths and 1,717 cases of influenza.
“The number of deaths and cases of flu in the country is at its lowest in a long time.
The government is now in a position of being able to control the disease,” said Prakash Bhatt, president, Food Processing Association of India.
The Food Processing Industry Council of India (FPII), the country’s largest trade body for food processing, said the number and seriousness of the pandemic had led to the closure of about 30 per cent of its facilities.
“We had no idea of the scope of the disease, or the number that had died,” said Rakesh Kumar, the president of the FPII.
“Even though the number has decreased, there is still a huge risk of deaths, especially among people who do not have the right treatment.”
