Uttar Pradesh - population 205 million - only 20 covid cases a day - Ivermectin?

Micky Turner made this Official Information request to Radio New Zealand Limited

The request was successful.

From: Micky Turner

Dear Radio New Zealand Limited,

Uttar Pradesh in India has a population of 205 million - but are only getting 20-40 Covid 19 cases per day. This is the same number of cases as New Zealand with a population of 5 million is currently getting with a level 3 lockdown.

Israel with a highly vaccinated population of 9 million are currently getting 2000-4000 cases per day.

Please forward the following information:

1. Has RNZ News made 'any' attempt to contact the Uttar Pradesh Health Department to see what strategy they are using to achieve such success? Yes or No?

2. All written communication between RNZ News and the Uttar Pradesh Health Department or Director of Health since March 2020.

I note Uttar Pradesh has been using Ivermectin, Doxycycline and Zinc (links below).

I note Uttar Pradesh seems to be testing at a reasonable rate (link below).

The Uttar Pradesh Director of Health seems to be easily contactable. Their email is listed here: https://nidm.gov.in/pdf/links/health.pdf

Yours faithfully,

Micky Turner

Thanks George,

RNZ's journalists wouldn't want to look too deeply into why Uttar Pradesh is only getting around 10 cases a day - it would likely expose a weakness in the official narrative.
