Indian media are reporting that the Indian government will stop its use of the term ‘tacos’ in future, following a spike in cases of gastroenteritis.
India has recorded a whopping 50,000 gastroenteritic deaths in the last month, according to the World Health Organization.
While the government has said it is working on measures to combat the epidemic, there are concerns that the term could hurt the image of the country, which has a reputation for being an efficient and safe place to live.
“There is no doubt that the word “taco” has tarnished the reputation of India, especially among the public, which is a highly developed country with an excellent medical system, said Dr. Ravi Shankar, professor and head of the Department of Public Health and Health Policy at the Jawaharlal Nehru University.
The government has announced a number of measures to tackle the epidemic and has also set up a toll-free hotline to inform people of their healthcare options.
However, the government is still considering the implications of the word, Shankar said.
In the past, the term was used to describe the kind of food served at a fast food restaurant, which was a common term for fast food.
However, the use of ‘tamis’ or ‘tongas’ has also been used in the past to describe foods served in restaurants and this is what we are looking at now, Shankara said.”
We are still in the phase of developing this policy and in the process we are also looking at other options to make sure that we have a very robust and healthy food supply for people, not only because it is a very important health issue, but also to protect our reputation,” Shankar added.
The health ministry did not respond to a request for comment.
There is a growing fear that the spike in fatalities will lead to a backlash in India.
Many of India’s small and medium businesses are closing down due to the rise in cases, and many of them will lose their livelihoods.
Hospitals are also running out of doctors and nurses, and some hospitals are even refusing to admit patients for fear of the infection spreading.
Meanwhile, the WHO says that more than 1.6 million people have died of gastroesophageal reflux since the outbreak began, with the number expected to increase in coming days.
India has also reported the highest number of deaths from the coronavirus in recent history.
According to the WHO, the virus is spreading in different ways in India, from cases to deaths.
The country recorded 1,534,846 new cases last month compared to 1,314,876 in January.
