Last year we reached out to help our local community by providing free meals to those in need due to the pandemic. Thankfully the coronavirus situation is improving in the UK but we look on in horror at how coronavirus is now spiralling out of control in India.
As a business specialising in Indian food we would like to do our bit and help those in need in India. Therefore we are pledging to donate 5% from every order you place with us until the end of May towards the Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC) India Coronavirus Appeal.
Simply order, enjoy an award winning curry and know that you are also helping those in need in India

We agree with the Prime Minister that we all are in the fight against #COVID19 pandemic together!

Migration status, religion of the patient or social status is and must be irrelevant to every human being’s dignity and their right to live.

TV news channels & social media users in India who are demonising Muslims or any other communities must understand that this can lead to stigma & adversely impact public health.

They must heed @PMOIndia & stop blaming the Muslim community for the spread of the #COVID19 pandemic.

Over these years, in his political journey so far, @RahulGandhi has never hesitated to give impromptu interviews and answer to random questions from students/farmers/entrepreneurs during his interactive sessions with them. 1/8
He has always reiterated people to throw him with tough questions because he likes dealing with them.

I've seen him getting bashed with the harshest of questions by some journalists and other eminent anchors and how gracefully, with complete equanimity, he answered them. 2/8
On the other hand, Shri @narendramodi has never even attended a single press conference, in his six years journey as a PM, where he answered to impromptu questions asked by the press mates, forget about sitting down for an unscripted interview. 3/8

On @bsindia front page today:

The central government has begun a massive exercise to map & create a database of millions of migrant workers scattered across the country — in relief camps, on their employers’ premises, or in clusters where they reside.…
Officials say the government wants to create a database of such workers to ascertain whether a relief package could be announced for the most affected segment of the workforce due to the national lockdown to contain the spread of #Covid19.
The database will include details on whether the migrant workers have bank accounts or Jan Dhan accounts, whether the workers get benefits of free gas cylinders for cooking under the Pradhan Mantri Ujjwala Yojana, and their Aadhaar numbers. Image

The government declared #COVID-19 as a “notified disaster” under the #Disaster Management Act, 2005. As per Section 10 of the Act, the Health Ministry has directed National Pharmaceutical Pricing Authority to regulate the price and availability of #sanitizers and #masks. (1/n)
The prevention of fake news over social media is also being controlled by the #government.
It is for the first time that under Section 6(2)(i) of the Act, a national lockdown was declared by the National Disaster Management Authority and implemented in the States u/s 38. (2/n)
This affects the freedom of movement and assembly of citizens with the exception of provision of essential goods, but is required for the prevention of the spread of #COVID19. Hence, the police are permitted to book violators of the lockdown under the provisions of the IPC. (3/n)

Dear @vnehra

Thank you for your untiring efforts to fight #COVID19outbreak. Your efforts are appreciated.

However, this business of publishing the names of the #covid19 positive patients by @AmdavadAMC makes me uncomfortable.
The right to privacy is a human right of every patient. The European charter for patient rights states "Every individual has the right to the confidentiality of personal information, including information regarding his or her state of health"
The World medical association states "I WILL RESPECT the autonomy and dignity of my patient" ;…

If you haven't done so already, I suggest you to read this excellent article on "Innovation for Pandemics" written by @BillGates for @NEJM . 10.1056/NEJMp1806283
We are all well aware from the now-famous @TEDTalks by Bill Gates on the subject that Gates predicted a pandemic of this sort back in 2018.
I am sharing a specific paragraph for the article in which he predicts that the next outbreak could be something like #Covid_19 Image

Dear @RahulGandhi,

People assume that being born in a political family is no less than a blessing, but little do they realise that when you lose your grandmother and your father to the same politics, then the picture isn't as rosy as it seems.
You can have immense love for the country you're born in, but i know, deep down how awful you feel when the same country rejects your mother just because she is of a different race and ethnicity.

Ever since you joined the political system, you were attacked, ridiculed...
and even called with unpleasant names.

Your opponents mercilessly attacked you everytime you fought them for their misdeeds and corrupt practices.

They, along with their PR machinery/paid BJP IT cell peddlers, never missed an opportunity of your character assassination..

Superb lecture (as always) by @PSainath_org talking about rural distress in India and rise of authoritarianism in times of #COVID19outbreak.

Recording to be made available soon, but meanwhile sharing some highlights here (thread 👇🏼)…
In 15 days, many parts of Maharashtra such as Latur, Osmanabad, etc. are going to face water issues (as they do annually). How are people going to wash their hands multiple times a day when they get water once in 2-3 days?
The country has suddenly realised the volume of migrant labourers. Lot of sectors are hamstrung by the absence of these workers due to lockdown (many workers, such as sanitation workers were laid off by govt with some benefits & job outsourced to private players/contractors)

Carefully watch this video!
When the entire nation is under lockdown and cooperating with the govt by staying indoors to fight the #COVID19outbreak , here is a swarm of potential infected cases breaking all the law only to risk others. Let see why it is more than what we see
You would have seen police beating the sh*t out if people when they step out, and here it is only few pats, also you can hear the voice of the man who keeps saying "I will take care he doesn't beat, don't beat them"
Towards the end, you could see a woman running inside crying saying someone is stuck inside. The cop says nothing to worry, everyone is coming out.
But she choose to keep up with the drama anyway. This particular edited scene will go around projecting them as victims

1-Dear @narendramodi ji,

Updating some more inputs, we have gleaned from health policy researchers and first responders to the #CoronaCrisis all around the world.

We urge you to share it with your team to inform the forward strategy on #Coronaindia

@PMOIndia @drharshvardhan
2-As we begin April – almost everyone agrees that it will be a hard month as the #CoronaPandemic spreads across the globe.

The epidemic may calm down by July and August, but #ChinaVirus is likely to be seasonal and could return with a vengeance in the fall.

3-The next challenge then becomes - How do we crack the current outbreak, develop a plan to return to normal life, and ensure that the #wuhanvirus never poses the same threat again?

THREAD When the nature changes its course, migratory birds travel miles, in search of resources, either for nesting or food. They often move in unison. A similar pattern was seen in India's national capital New Delhi on Saturday - not in the skies but down below. #CoronaLockdown
As soon as word spread that inter-state services are going to take passengers to U.P., migrants gathered in thousands to reach the Anand Vihar bus terminal in the hope of reaching home. #MigrantsOnTheRoad
There was an evident coordination between the govts in Delhi, Uttar Pradesh & at the Centre. Delhi's state-owned buses took the migrant workers to the Anand Vihar bus station so that they do not have to walk till there. Delhi Police ensured people take the buses and not walk.

@anandmahindra , We are a task force of about 100 people consisting of some graduates from IISc, tech startups in BLR, and employees from TI India. We are among the brightest tech minds in India and we have the ability to hack together hardware+software with very little effort.
We have designed the following -
Low cost ventilators - These are extremely critical for saving lives.
Pulsoximeters - For measuring blood oxygen content in hospitals
UV LED based disinfection devices.
Large boxes for hospitals.s
Small boxes for home use
@anandmahindra , @kiranshaw , #pmoindia, @PMOIndia We need help in manufacturing the same. Many factories that we are talking to are being shut-down. We need help either to keep some of these factories open or to find factories which have the permit to remain open.

In a war like situation, how Kerala mobilising its resourses is a classic example for what reason public sector companies should be protected. (1/n)
State was running short of hand sanitizers.State owned Kerala drugs & Pharmaceutical( KSDP) started the production of Hand Sanitizers.When demand increased, the production was throttled to 100000 bottles in a single day! 500 ML bottle is sold for just RS 125.(2/6)
