I don’t know where to start with this profoundly ignorant selfish stupid tweet from @EstherMcVey1 who clearly has no compassion for the 100,000s of people who died or were damaged by #COVID19Pandemic - not least those unprotected in the #NHS due to lack of #PPE early on 1/
#masks do work. We reduced transmission in in centre #haemodialysis #patients radically once they wore masks door to door. 3% of all such #patients died in the first wave Esther & we were told off for giving them masks. 80+ #patients died at our centre alone. It was brutal 2/
Don’t take my word for it (though I’m way more expert than you @EstherMcVey1) - read this thread from @trishgreenhalgh who is a world expert on how #Covid19 is airborne & how #masks protect yourself AND others

And the please correct your dangerous ignorant tweet 3/

Using the Ministry of Health & Family Welfare’s Statewise Covid Hospital Report, we found that the ratio of hospital beds to patients in Delhi is approximately 1 bed for 190 people, and is one of the highest ratios amongst all states.
Despite that, we saw the severe scarcity of hospital beds and medical infrastructure during the second wave of COVID- 19.

What about our other states and villages that have even lesser medical resources? How are they placed to protect themselves against the #COVID19Pandemic?
In view of the catastrophic second wave in #MadhyaPradesh, it is crucial to zoom into health infrastructure to gauge its preparedness - even as cases slowly decline.

We found that the ratio of #hospitalbeds to patients in Madhya Pradesh is approximately 1 bed for 640 people.

Since coming back to beautiful #Aotearoa, I’ve been ridiculously busy working on an exciting new focus - making films on #conservation, #wildlife & the #climatecrisis. During the #NZ summer I’ve had the privilege of filming in the stunning #OtagoPeninsula ... #Thread
... in the wildlife capital of #NZ#Dunedin (Otepoti). I’m totally blown away by the depth & breadth of the #conservation work happening all over #Aotearoa, especially to help save NZ’s endemic #wildlife. Standby for a #conservation #thread ... :)
#NZ has a number of native species currently under threat - from forest birds like the Kea, the iconic Kiwi, Kākāpō & Takahē. But it’s Dunedin that is hailed as the #wildlifecapitalofNZ because it’s here that you can see so much wildlife – from #sealions #furseals #penguins ...

SaaS-y salaries are 30% more than traditional IT services — and they’re making it tougher for traditional IT service firms to find the right talent…

By @pabsgill
@pabsgill If you’re an #Engineer in India, the job market is tough. There’s a lot of competition and companies are selective about who they hire. But one thing that can give you an edge over other candidates is the right set of skills — SaaS-y skills.

#SaaS #IT
@pabsgill India’s software-as-a-service (#SaaS) market is still young, but that’s where the real money is, if you’re an #Engineer. The demand is overflowing, especially after the #COVID19Pandemic’s ‘digital transformation’ wave.

Police claim “unlawful assembly” after killing 20 year old young black man, with his mom on the phone and his girlfriend beside him as they drove to visit his older brother and see his new home. Here is the PDF from the @aclu_mn re: protests. #BlackLivesMatter
Minneapolis police knew, or should have known, the killing of a young black man stopped in his vehicle, will result in protests. The police should have been prepared for protests and de-escalated it. Journalists have been reporting that police officers are quitting the “force”
because of fear of danger after the George Floyd trial outcome. Therefore, they knew of the repercussions of killing, wrongfully, a young black man. #EnoughIsEnough #StopSystemicRacism

Only 3 states have received more than 1 crore vaccine supply : Maharashtra, Gujarat, Rajasthan.
Gujarat & Rajasthan has equal population. Rajasthan has Congress Govt in power.
Vaccine supply is not on the basis of population but purely based on State's performance of execution of vaccination process.
Maharashtra received 1.06crore vaccines as mentioned in official StateGovt tweet from DGIPR on 6thApril.
91 lakh vaccines got used;means 15lakh still left with GoM.
So why are vaccination centres deliberately shut down today & why peltering of false news?
