My plumber who applied for an e-pass to fix some sanitary works at my parent's home, but Police rejected his application!

Why should promise that plumbers and electricians are allowed when Police outrightly reject the applications?

#Kerala #lockdown2021
I have helped him to register for e-pass and looking It every hour and today morning seen his application rejected.

It is true that more than 2 lakhs people applied for e-pass, but the rejection looks so arbitrary considering the exempted people who are denied the e-passes.
lt is difficult for these small plumbers, electricians, home makers to prove that their request is genuine as they have no documents to prove that they are engaged in the respective profession. They have other IDs but that does not indicate their profession.

For the first time since the Modi Government came to power in 2014, senior BJP and RSS ministers are on the defensive, unsure of how or what to communicate to the people as the #COVIDSecondWave rages across the country.

@ravishkt writes:…
The common refrain is that it was “sudden” and “unexpected,” even when told that the uptick began in Mumbai mid-February and all warning signs — from need of oxygen to the possible impact of the variant — came early. The Government had time to prepare. (2/10)
Asked about the conspicuous silence at the top as compared to daily and regular press briefings by some Chief Ministers, a Union Minister said: “I am with you on the need for a voice of reassurance (from the government). The entire situation is challenging”. (3/10)

A week ago, we had a 20 yr old woman in the ICU, who was 5 months pregnant. She was a high risk patient. We tried saving both the mother & child. Obstetricians, intensivists, anesthetists all were extensively discussing her line of treatment.
One day, while on rounds, her O2 saturation started dropping. We increased the O2 flow, calmed her, asked her to take deep breaths. She became stable only to deteriorate a few hours later.
With no option left, we had to sedate her & put her on mechanical ventilation.
There she was, a 20 year old, who was soon going to be a mother, lying on the bed with tubes in her mouth and IV lines running from her hands. We waited for her to get better in the following days, but ultimately had to deliver the baby through a C section.

Last couple of days, I have been requested multiple times to share info on #COVID situation in #India

This is a Thread so please read it completely.

@PMOIndia @HMOIndia @myogiadityanath
I went through India’s chart & the 1 pattern that emerged is that #COVID19 cases rise in India during the summer & drop down as it begins to get colder. Same thing happened starting in Apr 2020 & 2021.

#COVIDSecondWave #COVID19India
Having said that, the next 25/30 days are very crucial. This is the time period when cases will witness a spike. Also death toll will be high.

In what is being seen as the first such case in India, eight Asiatic lions have tested positive for the novel coronavirus at a zoo in Hyderabad. Nehru Zoological Park (NZP) got to know about this on April 29. #NehruZoologicalPark #Asiaticlions #COVID19India
However, Dr. Siddhanand Kukrety, the Curator and Director of the zoo, said, "It's true that the lions showed COVID symptoms but I am yet to receive the RT-PCR reports from the CCMB and hence it will not be proper to comment. The lions are doing well." #NehruZoologicalPark
Zoo officials had decided to test the lions after wildlife veterinarians at the facility noticed coronavirus-like symptoms such as coughing, nasal discharge, and a loss of appetite among some of the lions. #COVIDEmergency2021 #Wildlife #NehruZoologicalPark

So mucor is on the rise, time for a quick revision. A short thread for those interested.

It's a bad infection with an unreasonably high mortality(40-80%) which depends on the organ involved.

Risk factors: DM/ neutropenia/ HSCT

DM=rhino-orbital mucor
Neutropenia=pulmonary mucor
Mucormycosis is caused by fungi of order "MUCORALES" which includes rhizopus/mucor/licthemia/cunninghemela species. But DON'T WORRY species identification doesn't change treatment so we don't need to get to that.
Coming to the PRACTICAL POINTS that need to be remembered.

➡️IMAGING even at the slightest suspicion of mucor coz it's RAPIDLY PROGRESSIVE and kills quick.

➡️CT PNS/Orbits/ MRI Brain
➡️HRCT chest as per presentation
