Dear politicians/ administrators.
I hope by now you have understood that #COVID19 doesn't care about who and how big are you?
*Learn from the mistakes of Trumps and Bolsonaros of the world.
*Encourage authentic data collection. Encourage testing. Window dressing won't help you.
*Between media driven fear mongering and false data driven positive outlook, comes educating relentlessly.
*Stop connecting Covid19 numbers to your performance.
*Positivity at the cost of objectivity will not serve the purpose.
*Do not pressurise the experts to take shortcuts for delivering a vaccine or treatment.

Imagine you were born in 1900.

When you're 14, World War I begins and ends when you're 18 with 22 million dead.

Soon after a global pandemic, the Spanish Flu, appears, killing 50 million people. And you're alive and 20 years old.

When you're 29 you survive the global economic crisis that started with the collapse of the New York Stock Exchange, causing inflation, unemployment and famine.

When you're 33 years old the nazis come to power.

When you're 39, World War II begins and ends when you're 45 years old with a 60 million dead. In the Holocaust 6 million Jews die.

When you're 52, the Korean War begins.

Had a good conversation w/ @CMOKerala @vijayanPinarayi about a large number of complaints streaming in from students: university students being obliged to take exams despite major challenges,&schoolchildren asked to study online or byTV when many don't have basic facilities2do so
I have urged him to relax both sets of requirements during this unnatural #COVID19Pandemic period. Postponing exams & reducing the burden on schoolkids are essential even if it means truncating the following academic year. He has agreed to consider the issue sympathetically.
Also discussed w/CM the obstacles impeding repatriation flights of Keralites from Gulf countries. e.g.Requirement of Covid-free certificates from passengers is a problem for travellers from those countries which do not test asymptomatic people. Our Embassies are not equipped2test

On the 12th of February 2020, @RahulGandhi forewarned the Govt, about the impending #COVID19Pandemic .
A full month later, on the 13th of March 2020, the @narendramodi Govt be responding, the #COVID19 isn't a health crisis.
Look around you, now.
And after Rahul Gandhi forewarned the nation, about the impending #COVID19 crisis, the BJP force multipliers, rushed in, almost on cue.
Watch for yourselves, how authoritatively Sir @awasthis questioned RG, questioning the opposition & not the govt, is their forte.
In March, even before lockdown, @RahulGandhi was telling anyone who was willing to listen, that we were heading for a economic debacle.
The govt didn't pay heed & the BJP mocked him, in May, we knew the economy has tanked.
Look around yourself now.

Finally, PM @narendramodi has formally accepted that India's economic growth had slowed down. But he is economising on the truth and misleading the country when he suggests that our growth momentum was lost due to #Covid. It was already lost. Thread👇…
So a good starting point would be this piece on the govt's own economic growth data for 2019-20. If you read this, you will understand two things:

1> That India's growth had slowed sharply between April 2019 and March 2020. (contd)…
2> That government's unwillingness to accept that growth was faltering led to a situation where policy responses were bizarre to say the least. The massive corporate tax cut -- which cost the govt Rs 1.5 lakh crore in tax revenues -- is a case in point. (contd)

Over 1.81 million cases and over 105,500 deaths.

Every person that will suffer, that will die, because of these protests, these riots, is on Trump and his accomplices.



#CoronavirusPandemic #COVID19

#riots2020 #CoronavirusUSA
Trump has used any diversion to distract from the Coronavirus pandemic and that is why he now pours oil into the fire.

His actions and inactions in the last weeks, and months, regarding the pandemic have ensured this outcome.

From the very beginning he has lied and denied.

Played with people's fears and uncertainties.

He has thrived in confusion, misinformation and disinformation.

He has ensured that trust was misplaced, lost or forgotten.

Instead of leading by example he has selfishly divided the country.

After defection politics of 90s, mining lease imbroglio, untimely demise of a political colossus, trend of midnight mergers Goa, has been hurtling from crisis to crisis when #COVID19Pandemic hit. On #goastatehoodday, I pray for all #Goenkars to unite for restoring Goa's glory.
Goa is fortunate to have the sage advice of many senior leaders & dynamic young like @DrPramodPSawant @visrane @VijaiSardesai @sidkuks @RohanKhaunte @ReginaldoGoa who need to work like force multipliers on a war footing to deliver Goa out of this unprecedented multipronged crisis
#Goenkars & balanced members of media like @PramodGoa @sandeshgoa among others, must exert enough pressure to put governance delivery firmly on the forefront & avoid cynicism, paranoia & clamour for financially profligate packages. Good governance will take care in due time.

At least 100,000 Americans have fallen to the #COVID19Pandemic, so many of them preventable, the country is roiling and deeply destabilized, and this is what the leader of the United States is trying to bait journalists into.
He knows how to do it, too — insult our work and injure our professional ego. I get it. And he’s an old hand at it, he’s an expert at baiting journalists info public fights, but don’t let that old master baiter have this one. Remind him of the dead and those who will yet die.
God please just don’t let it work this time, please listen to me just this one time it’s so embarrassing

~ वर्तमान मधुशाला काव्य ~

मंदिर-मस्जिद बंद कराकर,
लटका विद्यालय पर ताला ।
सरकारों को खूब भा रही,
धन बरसाती मधुशाला ।।


डिस्टेंसिंग की ऐसी तैसी,
लाकडाउन को धो डाला ।
लोगों के व्याकुल हृदयों पर,
रस बरसाती मधुशाला ।।

बन्द रहेंगे मंदिर-मस्ज़िद,
खुली रहेंगी मधुशाला।
ये कैसी महामारी है,
सोच रहा ऊपरवाला।।
नशामुक्त हो जाता भारत,
तो कैसे चलती मधुशाला।
काम बंद है उन लोगों का,
जो नोट की जपते माला।।
नहीं मिल रहा राशन-पानी,
मगर मिलेगी मधुशाला ।
भाड़ में जाए जनता सारी,
मस्त रहे पीनेवाला ।।
मेरी विनती है तुम सब से,
गर जाए कोई मधुशाला।
वापिस ना आने दो उसको,
तुम बंद करो घर का ताला।।


दुनिया हुई बरबाद और
इनको चहिए मधुशाला।
घर में पडे रहो दीवानो,
ना बचा पाएगा रखवाला।।

Another day of 3.5K+ new cases n just shy of a 100 deaths today! The trends clearly point to over a 125,000 cases before this month is out! The Government of the day is loco and can’t see the freight train barreling down! We will pay an unimaginable high price! #COVID19Pandemic Image

Una carta publicada en @TheLancet encuentra finalmente respuestas a las preguntas sobre las tan comunes lesiones dermatológicas en los dedos (#covidtoes) que estamos viendo durante la infección por el #COVID19 #COVID19Pandemic. Abro hilo
Los autores han realizado autopsias a dos pacientes y en ambos han encontrado la presencia de virus en las células endoteliales (las que forman los vasos sanguíneos) en distintos órganos, lo que explicaría el daño vascular que afecta a los pacientes que sufren la infección.
Si bien el virus usa habitualmente el receptor #Ace2 para crear el daño a nivel pulmonar, ya que éste se encuentra muy abundante en los neumocitos del epitelio alveolar (células del pulmón) y que es lo que provoca la famosa pneumonia por covid,
