We were hoping as the vaccines die down that the sudden deaths would abate, but now there are concerns that this is a long-term phenomenon. The India Times reports that on Thursday, Manoj Subramanium, a perfectly health IndiGo pilot, suddenly dropped dead at the boarding...

How does one base have a death toll of 17 in the span of eight months?
