Many citizens wasted time doing foolish things like banging thaalis for health care workers. Do the right thing now, for God’s sake! #SpeakUpIndia
Over 50 healthcare staff at AIIMS tested #COVID19 +ve in 48 hours
AIIMS doctors: "N95 masks & PPEs don't meet even basic MOHFW safety standards.
Our voice is met with FIRs, threats & attempts to jeopardise our career.
Its not the virus we are worried about its the…
This is the reason we're planning to move there. The most livable, educated and civilized state in India.
"We're Highly Educated"-a citizen's simple summary of the Kerala Model. "Kerala is the Best, says another. There's obviously more to it, but after months being on the road am sure of a North South Divide in the COVID response. Kerala is the happiest state Ive been to in 72 days. https://twitter.com/BDUTT/status/1265642672611446784/video/1
India is a fine example of how bad a crisis can go if you do not elect a government that cares, or think scientifically, or for the people. At the moment, the government feels like apathetic headless chickens, while massive migration patterns shows the loss of faith in the government. This is ofcourse with good reason due to unplanned, hurried, and oppressive imposition of policies that have only exacerbated problems for the underprivileged citizens of the country.
Next step, register the face mask you use with some arbitrary new body formed by the same few names for "national interest"

You ask questions of the AP government about a lethal gas leak, you get legal harassment. You ask questions about PPEs, you get locked up in a mental hospital.
Luring multinational when economic borders are getting tighter. Simply stupid. India has to transform for itself.

Every country's CDC is leading from the front--except India's. The NCDC is invisible; its IDSP stopped producing its decades old weekly report in Feb. They've taken a back seat to the government's "in-house experts" (???). Read @VidyaKrishnan@twitter.com's report. https://caravanmagazine.in/health/epidemiologists-say-india-centre-disease-control-withheld-covid-19-data-since-pandemic-began
What is even scarier is that the countries above us in the graph all have better healthcare and are already overwhelmed. When the cases in India hit critical mass, not only will we be overwhelmed, our size will make adequate help hard. Get your head out of the wah wah cloud.
WhatsApp gyan: The curve is flattening.
