  1. I think you got your facts wrong. The DGHS is spreading a disinformation campaign. The India Bar Association served legal notice on this disinformation campaign on June 18th, which is a few days after this video. Hopefully you can take this video down so you don’t also spread this disinformation campaign indavertantly.

  2. I don’t know who wrote this article or where they are from, but I’m thinking “chop” has two opposite meanings. One means that something has been cut or stopped. The other means that something has been given the official seal of approval. In the USA the first meaning is far more common. Maybe next time your authors can use a bit less slang and a few more precise words instead. Thanks.

    1. Ok, my bad, no edit feature for TSN comments. The post title uses “chops” while the video title uses “hatchets”, which always means to cut or cancel something; it’s another way of saying “axes”. So we’ve got a confused mess in India, with parts of their government in favor of ivermectin and another dead set against it. In other words, a typical day in India. Maybe their legislature should weigh in and pass a law or something.

  3. Trying to stay optimist believing this is more of a plan by the Indian bar Association to utilize the result of the coercion and Disinformation tactics used by the World Health Organization.
