Mucormycosis,

Yes, I posted about mucormycosis in another forum a couple of days ago. It's the last thing coronavirus sufferers in India needed.

I agree that the situation in India is dreadful, despite it being a major producer of vaccines. I note the Indian Gov has ordered social media not to refer to the 'Indian variant'.  

"India's government has instructed social media companies to remove any content that refers to the "Indian variant" of Covid-19.

The IT ministry said the World Health Organization (WHO) listed the variant as B.1.617 and any reference to "Indian" was false."

It wouldn't surprise me if a border war broke out between India and Pakistan over Kashmir. There have been several already. And, of course, China has its own border disputes with India and is friends with Pakistan.

The 'war' between India and Pakistan has been stop/start since the two countries became independent. 1947, 1965, 1971 and 1999. 

Border skirmishes are much more common and there have been several since 2000. 

There's also the insurgency in Jammu and Kashmir that the Indians blame on Pakistan and the insurgency in Balochistan that Pakistan blames on India.

If there is a war, then the danger is that China will get involved on the side of Pakistan. They have their own border skirmishes with India. (The latest last year.)
