Fifth post of the #Wildlife Week #Reintroduction Series.

Day 5 – Return of the #Barasingha to #Satpura #Tiger Reserve !!!

Swamp Deer commonly known as Barasingha have three subspecies, Wetland Barasingha, Hardground Barasingha and Eastern Barasingha.
Once #swamp #deer inhabited areas from Central India to the Godavari river in the south. Currently, they are found in five discrete populations in 3 regions of central, north-east and northern India.
Before the 1950s, the number of Hard ground Barasingha was estimated to be around 3,000 in Banjar Valley of Kanha National Park (KNP). However, by the 1960s the number had dwindled to a meagre 66 due to expansion of #agricultural activities into barasingha habitats...

In light of the ongoing #COVID19 crisis in India, Watch the State @project_polis is putting out a thread of reported instances of #StateViolence in relation to the #COVIDSecondWave.

India is running out of oxygen, #Covid19 patients are dying–because the govt wasted time: It took 8 months to invite bids for over 150 #oxygen generation plants. 6 months later, most still aren’t up & running. @psychia90 & @VijaytaL report for @scroll_in.…

If private school forces students to leave third language which they studied for 3 yrs & abruptly asks them to switch to another language, what's the recourse?

They learnt for 3 yrs, 6th-8th, suddenly asked to take new language--at a higher level (9th), tough
#CBSE #Missionary
As third language, you have Telugu, Bangla, Sanskrit, Urdu, Tamil, even French, any language depending on state or city.

But when teacher is available, yet, school principal gets rigid, wants to force. Parents can't speak up, fear kid would be targeted, if they raise issue more.
The schools don't fall under state govt ambit. Children suffer but at a critical moment unable to speak against own school because of obvious reasons.

There must be ways to deal with autocracy. People try media, plaint to panel, delegation but proper system to redress?

Having said what I did in this tweet thread linked below, it may well be the case that #Covaxin would have proved itself in a proper trial. But we'll never know now.
If the phase 3 trials do come up with an efficacy estimate it will be tainted by the #Bhopal trial centre irregularities. Hopefully they will scrap that centre and sequester all the trial data from Bhopal. If they start including data from this "clinical trial mode" roll-out...
They'd have a problem judging whether any protective effect is due to #Covaxin or due to the low number of cases reported from India anyway. That is the fundamental reason why efficacy can only ever be measured in placebo RCTs anyway.

I actually have sympathy for @BharatBiotech's scientists and the volunteers who took part in their clinical trials so far. They have been let down by bad science and poor regulatory processes. The company should never have submitted #Covaxin for regulatory approval w/o Ph 3 data
That mistake -the original sin, if you like- has led to a series of mis-steps, errors, cover-ups, linguistic contortions, and lack of clarity. The regulator shd have held the #Covaxin approval request and said, "we'll look at it when you have at least some preliminary ph 3 data"
Instead, they clubbed their approval of 3 separate products into one press release. That was Mistake No 3, driven I suspect by the desire to have a wholly Indian offering (Covishield though made in Pune was already labelled, don't forget as an #Angrez product.

I did not want to get into the #Bhopal #COVAXIN controversy. I was holding back.

But after seeing the response from some "health reporters", I had to come out and say it:

There's a fine line between demanding accountability from the Govt / Bharat Biotech and eroding the trust of the people in the vaccine.

To all those journos: You are crossing that line.
Yes. Go ahead and ask questions about why the approval was given. Ask why IC was not taken in Bhopal. Ask why the poor 45 yr old man died.

But do it with sensitivity.

The #COVID19 pandemic shows the need for building capacity within the country for critically evaluating ethical issues in health research
We @SangathIndia #Bhopal hub are delighted to have been funded by @thakurfdn to to create an online/digital course on health research ethics
The project is called DRISHTi (Developing capacity in health Research ethics Training) and the digital course will be targeted at health professionals as well as general public. The course is proposed to be 8-10 weeks long, completely digital in format and in the English language
The course has the potential to be a key contributor in developing capacity within India to conduct and evaluate health research from an ethics perspective.

Have been in touch with Rachna for the last few weeks as we discussed issues with one of the #Bhopal #clinicaltrials site for #Covaxin. Lots of issues with trial conduct as documented in her thread below.
Issues with informed consent, care of trial participants, recruitment.
This issue needs to be highlighted more as it shows us what poor oversight could mean, especially because we are now talking about expanded use of vaccines "in clinical trials mode" (not that I am sure anyone really knows what that means)
Now this is probably just an issue with an inexperienced trial site and investigators who were eager to be part of a prestigious study, but faltered on some aspects of trial conduct. But imagine this happening at scale-- how are we going to ensure protection of the vaccinees?

Today is the 35th anniversary of the Bhopal Gas Tragedy. As 60% of the country was born after the tragedy, a thread to acknowledge the endless suffering of the victims, and recap the state blunders because of which most victims are still waiting for compensation. #Bhopal 1/n

The govt of India was involved from the beginning. It courted UCC to set up in India, provided all he relevant clearances, relaxed some regulatory requirements, and even owned a 22% of the shares in UCIL. 3/n
